Back from the Beach!

I returned home from visiting my parents in Birmingham and down at the beach in Sandestin this past Wednesday night, but have been too busy to post all the great pictures I took. We spent a week down in Sandestin and returned to Birmingham last Sunday night. On Monday and Tuesday, mom and I sewed and went to fabric stores and had a fabulous time.
We went for a bike ride almost every day. This is looking over the golfcourse towards Baytown on the bay side.
Check out all those huge boats docked at the Baytown dock!
My mom and dad contemplating how pretty the bay is! The red bike is the one I always ride while I am down there. I have been lucky to get to go here with my parents once a year for the last 5 years.
Check out how beautiful the beach is! It was not as crowded as I thought it would be this time of year. I took this picture at noon during the week and almost managed to get a shot without another person in the picture at all! There was barely any sea weed and the water was such an emerald green.
I had such a good time! I ate so much seafood as I always do. I had mom's fried shrimp, grouper pontchartrain, stuffed shrimp with crabmeat, fried oyster B.L.T., snapper, scallops wrapped in bacon, shrimp creole, and I know I am forgetting another meal. This made those bike rides necessary, don't you think?
Several books were read, yo-yos sewn, and fabric bought... I will post more in-depth on the books and sewing in a little while.

It all looks as pretty as I remember it. I will be in Destin Tuesday - Thursday this week, but no beach for me. I will be working! Grrr! I'm glad that you had a good trip.
