Scenes from the Beach

In front of the house we rented (that jasmine smelled heavenly) and at The Red Bar.  By the fourth time we ate there ('cause Owen loved it- especially 
the shrimp and crawfish pasta) the hostess recognized us and bumped us to the top of the list for a table.  I think that makes us pseudo Red Bar regulars, yah?

Sunset on the beach from a couple of different nights.  Just off to the left of that last shot was a band setting up in the sand to play the blues.  I'm seriously in love with Grayton Beach and its laid-back style.

Doughnuts at Alys Beach.  

Backyard bocce and swing time.


Artsy flartsy fun.  Another great thing about Grayton is that it's adjacent to a state park, so even at mid-morning I got to be the first one of the day to discover what washed up on the beach overnight. 


Hope you all have a great weekend!  Owen had an art show last night and the trails are now cleared in our backyard, so I should have lots to share next week.  See you then!

I wish I wasn't so fair skinned. You know how much I love making your mother happy. I would take her to the beach very often.

Owen and his dad sure seem to have a great time together. Such great memories and bonding.
