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!
