No Back to School For Me

This week I won't be part of getting kids off to their first day of school.

Instead I will be walking over this little bridge until I arrive at my destination.

The beach.

We'll be spending the next few days on the Carolina coast.

We received an invitation from our friend and neighbor to come and stay at their beach condo with them. All of our kids are grown now.
There was a time in my life that going away to the beach during back to school time would be unthinkable. Sometimes I miss those days, but for the most part it is nice to have the freedom to go on a little getaway when the opportunity presents itself.
It's been a few years since we've been on a beach vacation. We used to get to Myrtle Beach yearly, but it always involved hockey tournaments and didn't leave time for playing in the surf.
I'm looking forward to playing in the Atlantic.
My next post will be #100. Hmm... I wonder what that means???
Stay tuned.

  15. Oh for the day to get to do that, too! We're done with homeschooling - first time no schoolwork to get started on....but I'm still working at getting dd a drivers license, a job, and maybe an education. Doesn't seem like I'm not still teaching - YET!

    What beautiful pictures. Have fun!

  16. I know you'll enjoy your time at the beach. I never tire of the sound of the surf as it crashes against the shore.
    Hugs, Rhondi
