My weekend had a rough start - nasty cat bite at work on Thursday. Punctured both sides of my finger -straight through my fingernail. Thankfully, I started antibiotics within hours of the bite and actually had an M.D. and a P.A. with us for my wound care. Being a vet isn't always fun & games! :) The throbbing has finally subsided and this is what it looks like now:
Mary & I picked out our dream houses...
|who wouldn't want a private little peninsula complete with a hammock??|
Spent plenty of time on Robinson Island...
|world's tiniest hermit crab|
of course I couldn't help but collect more shells #hoarder
|yes those are tiny seashells at the bottom. Told you - I'm obsessed.|
Made a stop at the Florabama for bushwackers, then enjoyed a beautiful sunset...
By Friday evening everyone had arrived. We had grand plans of making it out, but after dinner at the house, opted for a relaxing evening in.
Saturday morning, we hit the beach.
The problem with going to the beach in the fall is that football season gets in the way. By 2:30 part of the group started heading in to watch the LSU-UGA game, then we were all instructed to be ready to head to the restaurant in time for Bama's kickoff. Auburn had a bye week so I was perfectly content to lay on the beach until the very last minute!
After watching the Bama game, we headed to The Gulf, a restaurant/bar Cameron and I found earlier this summer. Best atmosphere ever!
They also have an adorable gift shop...
Sunday morning, we hung around the dock on the lagoon - postponing the end of our trip. It's so hard knowing that summer really is coming to an end! The boys fished and even caught a huge trout and a few crabs - perfect for lunch on the last day.
|being resourceful - tongs + soft drink box = perfect way to grab & contain crabs|
I'm sure we will get in another few boat rides before the weather turns cold, but it's always sad for me to say goodbye to the beach. Until next year!
