A Glimpse of Our Town....

I am so determined that this family of mine sticks together. I try to find things for us to do so that when the kids are grown and gone....when they get together, they'll be able to say, "Remember when we used to....."

We have a sort of tradition or habit that we tend to do a semi-regular basis. I get to the point sometimes that I just get tired of planning and cooking meals. I need a break from it and my husband is good enough to understand this need. Last night was one of those times. We decided to head out and get some Son*c goodness. This diet is wearing on us and the thought of some illegal bread made our mouths water. (I gotta tell you, that was the BEST dang burger I have EVER eaten.)



We loaded up the van and headed out in town. It had rained a little earlier and everything had that just washed look and feeling. You could smell the ocean on the breeze as the marshes filled up from the high tide. It wasn't hot outside and we could sit with our windows down and actually enjoy a September evening.



As is our tradition/habit we headed to the waterfront after eating. We rarely get out of the van when we do this. There's really no need since everything is right there in front of us. (That, and we don't feel like chasing the boy when his feet hit the pavement and he tastes freedom.) Vitt loves to see the huge shrimping boats that have come in after a long day's work. Evening time is the best time to see all the yachts moored in for the night, sailboats minus the sails, and the fishing boats with nets rolled up on the side. To me it's like seeing the same play over and over again with different players. I never get tired of it.



We decided to park just a minute and sit and look. Paige and I both noticed the sun setting to our right. She was asking for my cell phone while I was already setting it up to take a picture.



I'd like to share with you a few pictures of the water front in our town. I am amazed I live so close to ocean water every single time I think about it. (Back home we live about 30 miles from the ocean. Not a bad deal at all, but I do love living even closer!)


I hope you enjoy........







I took this one and Paige deemed it not worthy because I got the street lamp in it. I beg to differ because even the street lamps here are cool looking.


This is what Paige took of the sun setting through the tree. I gotta admit..the girl did a good job. I'm considering framing this one....




This a view of the smaller sail boats located where we parked. My son can sit and look at them forever. I wish I could see through his eyes and know what he's thinking when he gazes at them.




I thought I'd throw this one in. I took it back in May when we got out and walked around some. If you look in the background, you can see the boats from the previous picture. Well, probably not the same boats, but you can see how close they are. This has got to be the most beautiful park I've ever seen. We even had family pictures taken here.

So, there you have a glimpse of our town. She's hidden off the beaten path and so very beautiful. How could I not love it here?

Beautiful pictures! I thought to myself, "Wow, how pretty..." Then the next instant was, "Too humid, don't even think about it..."

I've got to start toting my camera with me and taking more pictures!
