G Is For Gone (On Vacation)

Surprise!  I've actually been gone on vacation this week!  I was able to post ahead of time so there were new things everyday, but I was busy enjoying some time on the beach (my favorite place in the world).  For the last four years, Amber and I have gone on a road trip during the spring/summer, and for the last two we have gone to Gulf Shores, Alabama.  I grew up going to the beach, and there's just something about it.  I feel like it's where I am at my best and most relaxed.   Maybe that's the way most people feel on vacation, but I think there's something special about standing on the beach looking out into the vastness of the ocean.  If I could move everyone I loved there with me, I would totally stay there forever.
 This is what we saw when we got out of the car after a really long car ride.  It was so much fun to walk out the door and onto the beach!  
 We didn't build this, but  who doesn't love a good sand Colisseum?  Just one of the awesome things about the beach!

 I'm the only one who gets up for the sunrise, but I can't help it!  I feel like part of going to the beach is trying to spend as many hours there as possible.  (Plus, I couldn't sleep anyway!)
 I have a thing about taking pictures of birds.
 Working on Amber's album cover here.  I hate having my picture taken, but I love to take pictures of other people!
 There are a few more beach themed alphabet posts in your immediate future.  Why don't you sit down and stay a while?


  1. I'm jealous. Can't wait for some beach time! That's an amazing Colisseum--looks perfectly round! I'm going to look back at your other A-Z posts; didn't know you were participating, but I'm glad, because I like your writing style!

  2. Beautiful pics. I really love the sunrise one! Thanks for stopping by Mercy's World, Im glad I found you, you have a beautiful blog!
