Memorial Day weekend

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

 Friday after work we headed east and I could not WAIT to get to the beach, sit on the porch, and have a drink. We were prepared for this weekend to be a complete washout due to tropical storm Bonnie. Thankfully, the weathermen were 100% wrong and the entire weekend was beautiful! We enjoyed so much beach time, it was darn good for my soul.

We got paddle boards for Christmas from my mom so we decided to take them into the sound on Sunday. The ocean was too rough so we loaded them into the car and drove to the sound side. We paddled for 2 hours up and down the waterfront, stopping on docks to take a break and drink a cold beer. Yep, we had a cooler packed and strapped to the front of a board. Priorities people!

We are so very thankful for the men and women that sacrifice their lives for our freedom. They are the reason that we are able to enjoy beach weekends in our amazing country. It was a great Memorial Day indeed!

  15. Looks like it was a beautiful weekend! I have't tried paddle boarding yet. My boyfriend and I really want to invest in a set of kayaks. Down in Savannah, GA, the dolphins love to swim near people. It's so neat!
