Drifting along

Since we returned from our January cruise, we have been enjoying spending some time around home.  One of the things we like to do is visit the local beach when the wind and surf is up.  It is always a reminder of how powerful nature is.





At the end of January, our Mardi Gras parade takes place out on Navarre Beach.  This is our second time and we took the motorhome so the grandkids would have a place to hang out while waiting for the parade.  It worked out great.  I think Victoria is getting the idea about collecting the bead necklaces. If you like parades, it was a lot of fun.













Earlier this month Victoria turned five and celebrated with family and her friends.  This a good age for kids birthday parties-lots of fun and virtual no drama that is sure to come by the teenage years. There may even be a few budding artists in this group.













We are working on our travel plans for the year and it looks like the motorhome will get plenty of use.

Love those waves. Five is a great age for fun times. Gotta enjoy them while you can.

I love being at the beach on stormy days. There's nothing like watching the waves thrash! And, you can get some great pictures too.

I used to live a block from the ocean front in Virginia Beach and loved to walk down during a storm and watch the power of the sea. Great pictures with wonderful memories for me thanks! That is just a darling picture of the birthday girl at the end. If they would just stay age 5!!

Love walking the beach when the ocean is a-tumble.

Mardi Gras parades are so much fun with little kids around. We passed on the parades this time when we were in Mobile a couple of weeks ago. Jimmy and I also enjoy beach walking, esp when the wind and surf are up. A high surf warning is in effect on the Big Island of Hawaii, and that's where we are today, so we are enjoying!
