Having Fun at the Beach

Hello everyone!

 More vacation pics to share........

We went to Crescent Beach, Florida.  This is a great beach!  It's very family oriented.  Cars are allowed to drive on the beach near the back and pets are also welcome.  We didn't bring our dog because the condo wouldn't allow them for renters.  Next year, we may look for a different one since dogs are allowed on the beach and we saw quite a few playing in the waves.  It made me miss mine even more! 

Here is my crew getting all set-up on the beach.


My husband bought a boogie board to play in the waves.  It's supposed to be for the kids.  Hmmmmm............


Guess he had to test it out first. 


Yep!  It rides good.  Guess the kids can have it for a little while now.  Ha!

The kids, however, were digging in the sand trying to bury each other.




Why do boys have such a fascination for doing that?!

Will tried feeding these little guys too, until a flock of them started invading us soon after.

This is the view from the beach looking back at our condo.  There are sand dunes blocking it from the beach.


We also enjoyed using the pool.  Our room overlooked the pool.




My son, Will, is like a little fish.  He LOVES the pool!




In my next post, I'll share some of the sights of St. Augustine. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Looks like you are having so much fun. I am really missing the beach. When I lived near the ocean I took it for granted. Now, I would love a walk on the beach :)

I'm with Will..As I got older, I preferred the pool..no sand..clean water...I love to walk on the beach at the waters edge though...Looks like everyone was having a good time...

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

What a view from your hotel room! I like to walk on the beach but honestly I prefer the pool to swim. Much less mess! Looks like you had a wonderful time. It's so nice to get away and have your family all to yourself. Have a good week...Ann
