Home again, Home again Jiggety-Jog

first night on the beach for the four of us

the water was nice...no signs of oil from the giant oil spill (yet?)

the view from my workstation on the balcony...I'm not much of a lying on the beach kind of girl...I was content to swim in the pool, watch the water, the birds and the para-sailors from the balcony while working on scrap-booking...something I almost never get to do at home

pretty boat huh?

tropical scene at Lulu's Restaurant...fried shrimp and hush puppies

no trip to the beach is complete without a stop at Souvenir City
to purchase some shells and T-shirts...enter through the shark's mouth


All good things must come to an end...it's back to work for me ; )

  7. Welcome home. It appears that you had a great time. Beautiful skies, boats and of course a little shopping is always in order.

  13. Nice photos...is this Galveston, by any chance? I can't remember where you are from but it seems to me you are a Southern girl like me( I am originally from Columbus, GA - went to nursing school in New Orleans and do I ever love hushpuppies ).

I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
