|Doug after driving most of the night.|
In the morning, the sun came up and the children were surprisingly happy. (The 5 adults counted their blessings.)
Even the baby was happy. Can you guess how many hours of prayer went into this trip?
And so were the parents. The kids ran off
some a lot of energy.
Breeley sat in sand for the first time.
We heard from the locals that a refurbished ship was in town and headed off for a tour. Ate lunch at a local (wonderful) Mexican restaurant, got some groceries and headed toward our rental home. That night some sleepy eyed kids watched a movie. The grownups unpacked and cleaned up dinner.
The day ended with a beautiful sunset. And soft beds.
The days since have been filled with sun and sand. Wind and waves. Beautiful sunrises (not that I've seen them) and beautiful sunsets. Moonlight shining on the waves. Sandcastles and shell collecting.
Today I'm sitting on the couch. Watching the waves crash, the porch swing sway in the breeze and the clouds play peek-a-boo with the sun. I'm so grateful to be in this beautiful place with some of the ones I love best.
