Beach Trip 2010

It's stormy weather at St. George Island.  The beaches are fairly quiet with only a few people down near the water.   Someone is constantly patrolling the beaches on four wheelers and helicopters.  We assume looking for oil.  We sure haven't see any.  Some seaweed, but no oil.

Russell with his mama.

When it's storming outside, it's nice and peaceful inside!  You won't see Russell resting like this often!  

These two certainly know how to relax.....in fact, they were quite indignant that I had the nerve to disturb them!

Russell can always be found in the kitchen fixing us something to eat.  Of course, today when I saw myself in my bathing suit, I decided I should swear off eating altogether.  Then I got hungry.

Thinking a bike ride would help counteract the calorie count, we started out late yesterday afternoon to tour the Island.   Still in the  driveway I hit a patch of gravel and went down.  I'm not sure I went as much as I flew head first right into the gravel.  Thankfully, I put my hands out and my head didn't actually hit .....when I came to a stop both palms were scraped up and my right knee looks like hamburger.  I know that my right hip isn't weak because I landed hard on that side and apparently nothing broke.  Russell rushed to me and pulled me up, we turned around and went right back to the house where he washed off my wounds and bandaged them as best he could with makeshift supplies.  AWWWW, he's such a sweet husband. 

I'm not sure we'll get another ride in this trip.  

Hopefully we'll have some nice weather and I'll get some good sunny beach pictures before we leave.  
For now, relax is the word for this week.

We are better able to relax because this little one is home and doing well!

Actually we check often for new pictures of this sweetheart!

Update.......It's Tuesday now and we woke up to a real storm!

Even when Russell is relaxing it looks as though he has one foot on the floor and ready to go.

Putting a bathing suit on???? You are braver than I am. It is strickly shorts for me these days - long shorts too!!!

Enjoy your storm. They can be beautiful at the beach.

I'm really glad to hear the oil isn't there yet. I've been WONDERING about your beaches.

Take care on that bike - - - falls arn't fun any more!

I'm sorry you got hurt! Glad there is no oil there yet. Hope you can get some good, relaxing, family time in.

The bike crash is scary stuff - glad you're OK, though scuffed up a bit. . .I think the beach is one of the happiest places in the entire world when the sun is shining, but when it's cloudy I find it terribly depressing. I knew I shouldn't have gone to see the movie "Beaches" - it sort of ruined the beach thang for me. Hope the sun is shining tomorrow!!

Hope ya'll are having fun (minus of course - falling!) =)

Dawn said...

Were you wearing a helmet? I should, but I hate them!

Bathing suits and me - no thanks, even with 38 pounds gone!

Hope it gets nice for you, but the relaxation sounds good, too.

Glad the baby's home and doing well - love the picture of Daddy feeding him.

How wonderful you are having this time to relax. Sorry to hear about your accident but glad to hear you weren't injured too badly!

Also glad to hear all is well with the new little one.

Tonja said...

I hope you don't start aching more when your injuries set in! Glad you weren't hurt any worse!

Yea, unfortunately the waether forcast everywhere in these parts is rain...rain....rain!

Be careful!

Cathy said...

It looks gorgeous even in the rain!! We definitely have oil here.......we saw people trying to wash it off their shoes. But it is still beautiful, oil or no oil, so everyone needs to come vacation!!!

Just Breathe said...

Sorry about that fall. Ouch! It's been raining everyday here in Florida. Sweet precious baby :)

Katie and Beau said...

I love that picture of Tommy and Charlie!

I'm sorry but I have to admit that I laughed out loud when I read you fell (after I read you were okay, of course)
