2014/096: Florida Souvenir

One of the little somethings I bought during our trip to Florida last December was a perfect addition to my coffee mug collection (and yes, the seashells are some of the ones I found on the beaches πŸ˜‰ )

2014/055: Beach Treasures (1)

When walking along the beach, collecting seashells is a must (for me anyway πŸ˜‰ ) and these are a few of my favorites that I brought back from Pensacola Beach last December.

2014/018: Sand Art

Both by Sara, although she had a little help from me finding seashells for the heart. Had to work quickly so it wouldn’t get washed away before it was finished.

2014/014: Christmas In Florida

During our summer vacation in Florida, we decided that we would come back when the kids were off for winter break. One was excited, the other one….not so much (but she had to come with us anyway πŸ˜‰ )
We decided on Pensacola Beach, even though it wouldn’t be warm enough to swim. It was COLD and WINDY, with temperatures in the low 30’s in the morning, and probably around 50 in the afternoon, but it was still beautiful, and the cold certainly didn’t stop us from venturing out for walks on the beach. Sara often came with me very early in the morning, to take pictures of the sunrise, and look for seashells. Melissa on the other hand didn’t go out unless we didn’t leave her any other choice (that’s teenagers for ya πŸ˜‰ )

These photos were all from our first day (Dec.23)

Holiday Inn Express, Pensacola Beach. As you can see, the hotel is right on the beach, and best of all, ALL their rooms have a Gulf front view!

Of course we didn’t waste any time to get down to the beach!
