A Few Beach Photos

The long-awaited trip to Emerald Isle took place at last in mid September. What a shock to realize that it had been 4 1/2 years since we were all together. There were cousins who'd never met, for heaven's sake! We were so lucky to get four families from four different states, all together in a fifth state to enjoy a beautiful beach house.


The weather was perfect, the house was phenomenal, and - as my friend Diane said - what's not to love? Ocean breezes, seashell collecting, and men who cook!

We've agreed to not post photos of the children on blogs or Facebook, but I can certainly post the adult children and some of the vistas!






Lovely sunrise:



We got some waves (and rip tides) due to Igor:


Here's one shot of the whole family on the beach - not very crowded! What a lovely way to spend a day.


This is the view from the doorway of Oldtimer & my bedroom:

And here I am with my three babies. My dear son managed to point out that the combined age of my three children is now 97 years! Way to make your old mom feel better, Chris!

As much as I enjoyed it and as badly as I missed you at the Retreat, I still envy you for being where you were! That last photo is a million-dollar shot. Wow!
