First Sunset.....

We arrived yesterday at 2:45pm...
Unpacked...well, some!
Groceries in fridge...
Grabbed 2 cold beers....chips....cushions
Headed to our favorite beach chairs...
To watch the goings on.....on a Sunday afternoon at the beach!

It was a toasty 25*c....just lovely....no wind!

I took a few pics....

Enjoy!












This is today.....wee bit rainy and cloudy....tomorrow promises to be sunny....

I can nurse my hideous head cold that I have had the whole trip....

Gonna have some chicken soup for lunch♥️

Hope to visit you all today, as internet was off yesterday....

Stay warm...

Cheers!    :o)

  3. Glad you arrived safely. And you left here at a really good time! Cleaned lots of snow off the car before getting to S.Common this a.m., not intending to make you feel guilty, ha, ha. Relax, enjoy and get rid of your cold. :)

  24. Glad to hear you have arrived safe and sound and bet you are missing the snow already! Wish I could use one of those chairs on the beach for a minute or two. Your cold will clear up in two days....I've had the same happen and in just two days...all gone - guess it's the sun and sand and beautiful breezes....blows it all out!!! Let me be the first to wish you a very Happy Birthday tomorrow! Not every day you turn 39 is it? Hope you have lots planned on your special day with your special boyfriend! The weather today will be sunny and beautiful - just for you!!

  26. Get to a clinic - they are all over the place. I had the same thing happen and wasn't getting any better....so $100 for the doctor visit and covered by your picked up health insurance for Fla. and then inhaler and meds. The inhaler and meds were so cheap I had to ask again for the price! Cleared me up pronto and off you go to enjoy your vacation! Pollen also seems to be a little problem there in Fla. at this time of the year...you will notice the yellow on the cars and so on. Hope you will feel better and can then have a birthday dinner with your boyfriend!!
