there is nothing like going on beach holiday to remind you how long it has been since your last beach holiday!
Travy and i are just back from a week of sun, sand and smiles on Oklaloosa Island, Florida with the fam. it has been 3 years since the family last made a trip to Fort Walton Beach. a lot has changed since then - Grandma left our crew while Travy has signed on, Travy and i moved to Tennessee, i got a grown-up job, many of Oklaloosa's fixtures fell to the last hurricane and were rebuilt and so on...
what hasn't changed?
the sea for one:
(this is a wee video taken with my stalwart Powershot S60 camera from our balcony. the resolution kinda sucks but you get the idea...)
the mighty excellence of a beach walk, a swimming pool
and making sand sculptures...
if that isn't enough, there is always the joy in each other's company whether at dinner or sea
at 800 feet
at the bridge table (yes, we taught Travy to play) or at dinner (again).
and of course, there is always the sea (again).
