Nice huh?? After breakfast we decided to go to the movies. The majority of the group wanted to see Harry Potter. The "little girls", as they were known all week, saw Zookeeper & Dean, Jackie & I saw Bad Teacher. It was really funny. I still haven't figured out what the woman was thinking that brought her son with her who looked to be 5 or 6. The movie was rated R for a reason. Crazy. After the movie it was back to the condo to watch the Championship game of the World Cup. I'm not the least bit interested in soccer but it was actually kind of exciting to watch. At least the last few minutes.
The rain finally stopped & Dean, Cliff & I went out to the beach with the "little girls" to catch crabs. I've never done this. Those things were everywhere. Some big & some teeny tiny.
I caught this one. He was big.
Monday we woke up to an absolutely gorgeous day. We spent the day on the beach. There was a lot of seaweed but we were just thrilled the sun was out. I don't get in the water. Maybe I'll get ankle dip but that's about it. Well, it's amazing what you do when two 12 yr. olds are begging. We bought those big inflatable inner tubes & rode the waves. I've never known of anyone to go to the beach & come home bruised. Everyday, I've found a new bruise. It's the most ridiculous thing ever. Those waves are rough when you're in a tube holding onto other tubes. It was SOOOO MUCH FUN though!
Amelia-Ann was worn out.
Tuesday, it was time to come home. Of course it was another gorgeous day & all the seaweed was gone. Oh well. On the way home we stopped in Ocean Springs, MS & ate at The Shed. It's been on the Food Network a ton of times.
It really does look just like a shed.
I'm not even a huge fan of BBQ but I really enjoyed my lunch. A pulled pork sandwich with slaw & a side of slaw & potato salad.
This is what it looked like inside. If you're in the area you should definitely stop!
We had a great trip & as usual it went by way too fast. I can't believe at this time last week I was on the beach!
