Why We Love the Beach

 Dauphin Island has a plethora of hermit crabs.
 There is also evidence of Katrina that is sharp rusty iron.
 Oyster shells.

 Don't you want to dip your toes in?

 It's still fun to sink in the sand no matter how old you are.

 This little dude is just truckin.  I love the sea!!!!!

 Prettiest diamonds of all.
 Beach houses for rent.

 Someone's beach bathroom went into the ocean and is coming back again.
 Crab hole!
 Gotta love drift wood.

This pelican on the pole became quite the bird model he really showed off his moves for us.

 I had worried he might fly away. no worries mate.

 My college friend we met when our girls were 4 years old.
 When we quit paying attention to Mr. Pelican he started moving around so we would take his picture again. Happy to oblige!

 awhhhhh feels so nice.

Sporty flippers and a good pedi! She definitely has on the beach theme.
We had a great time. I have more pics but this is enough for today.
It is so hot out I hope everyone is finding ways to keep cool.

Good to hear from you :) I am not sure if you saw on the blog but my husbands job relocated us to the Middle East we are in Bahrain. I wish it was refreshing lol but it is 120 degrees here ugh!! We have been having an awful time getting the dogs over they have ridiculous import laws for pets. Lucy and Bear are at a Kennel in L.A.....Bear is supposed to be shipped out today it is going to be tricky though and I am concerned about him with the heat. Lucy got denied access they said she needed yet another rabies shot so she has to stay at the kennel for 2 more weeks until we can apply for her permit again. My Dad said if she can't get in after that she can go and stay with him in NY. I can't imagine not having my poodle though :( even now when I open the hotel room door I expect the dogs to come running it is weird to not have them. I will be in touch ~and I am praying this all works out with the dogs and they arrive safely. funny you never know if life what is around the corner thank goodness God does!! ttys Love Heather
