We really didn’t do a whole lot other than just rest and relax. Most of us spent a lot of time during the day on the beach, and we went out a few times in the evenings. We made our annual excursion to play mini golf. This course was more like actual golf than the Putt-putt that I’m used to. It was pretty hard, and I am not proud to say that I came in last! 🙁 We also spent some time at the local Dairy Queen. We have DQ here in Richmond, but for some reason I rarely go there except when at the beach. I’m in love with the new mini blizzards! So yummy! We did a little window shopping one afternoon when it rained. It was nice to take a little break from the sun after I fried the tops of my feet!
Overall, it was a great time and I was definitely bummed to have to come home. Although it was a wonderful vacation, I couldn’t help but think about how different it would have been with a 1 year old little boy. We would have been lugging much more than just 2 beach chairs and towels to the beach each day. And I probably would have done very little sitting and much more chasing after my son. While I thoroughly enjoyed the rest and relaxation, I wish it could have been different in that regard. I’m hopeful that we will experience life at the beach with our child in the future, but this summer wasn’t our time. I can’t deny that it bummed me out some, but the Lord was gracious not allowing me to dwell on it the entire time.
