So after doing a little caving we headed to the beach. We had camped here 14 years ago, and found it had grown and improved greatly. It is a pricey place to camp. For a week of no interruption/obligation family time we didn't fret. It was worth it!
We played some Frisbee
Wednesday morning we experienced a horribly, scary thunderstorm. On Tuesday evening as we walked along the beach, watching little boys crabbing with their dads...watching the lightening crack down at a distance over the Gulf was an awesome sight. Feeling the lightening crack over the camper, turning the bunk ends a glow of red and orange--CREEPY! SPOOKY! HEART STOPPING! But By Thursday the sun was out in all day force, not small doses that you had to grab quicker than a sandwich from a gas station.
Then we had some good old fashion beach fun. We people watched. Made careful note:just because they make it in your size does not mean you should wear it. The girls got silly.
We did a little bit of boogie boarding
We sipped a couple of bucket drinks (cause when your daughter is 21 you can do that)
D took a stab at some crabbing of her own...the crab would have none of that.
Relaxing can be dangerous if you're the only man in the family

The gypsy vacation continued....
