Our Beach Vacation

We are back, and I am missing the beach already! My family loves the beach and we usually choose a beach vacation each year. Sometimes we go other places on vacation, but usually it's the beach.

My husband loves to go to different beaches, and this year he found a place for us to rent for the week at a place called Indian Shores, Florida. It's between Clearwater and St. Pete Beach, in the Tampa Bay area. It was so nice.

I love everything about the beach...playing in the ocean, snorkeling, searching for shells, building sand castles (as well as other creations from sand), sitting under a big umbrella reading a good book, feeling the breeze on my face and the sand under my toes, watching the beautiful sunsets. I love sitting on the balcony at night, listening to the waves crashing on the peaceful. Yep, I'd love to retire to a little place on the beach some day :)

Of course, I really love all of God's great creation. From listening to the waves crashing on the ocean shore to seeing beautiful mountains ablaze with color in the fall to just sitting in my own backyard in the evenings listening to the crickets chirping, I enjoy it all. Isn't He grand to share all this beauty with us? And shouldn't we be so grateful? He is so good!


  1. Our family also loves the beach! We've been trying to have some beach time of some sort each winter for the last few years. Looks like you had a great time!

  2. This looks like fabulous fun!! My kids and I just love the beach. I am not sure how I managed to marry someone that just is not a beach guy. But my husband would rather do anything other than go to the beach. The kids and I on the other hand just love going. When we went to Florida the kids and I did manage to go to the beach for a whole day. (We left Dad at the hotel - he enjoyed himself and so did we!)
