|That's love right there.|
7:45AM - Wake up (yes this early!).
7:50AM - Eat breakfast, check the weather report. Put on swim suits and sunscreen.
8:30 AM - On the beach! Which means we really just fall back asleep out there... then Lesley & I will go on a morning walk before the sun gets too hot.
11AM - Get in the water and depending on how hot it is, we may be in there awhile. I like to know when the tide is going to be and then get out there ride the waves.
12:30PM - Make/eat lunch inside. This is an important part of the routine now that Lesley is part of our family. A little after noon she starts to be about done with the sun and we take a break for her skin's sake and my stomach's sake.
1PM - More soaking up the sun and in the water for the Smiths! Lesley, however, retreats to the tent after lunch. She doesn't mind at all, but the tent is essential if she's going to stay out there with us. She naps or reads or just enjoys the ocean breeze safely from under there. The rest of us, well, we can't get enough of the warm sand and sun.

6:30PM - Dinner, which on this vacation was cooked by Lesley every night because she LOVES to be in the kitchen and to get to host for everyone.
7PM til whenever - out to do things once it's not on-the-beach weather anymore!
So needless to say, my family loves spending time on the beach, so we are on the beach for at least 9-10 hours a day. And this is pretty much everyday! We're also all about some relaxing while we're there as well since every one of us doesn't take enough time to do this during our busy day to day lives. I told Lesley while we were on this trip, that I definitely wouldn't mind living on the coast one day. :) This was no surprise to her at all.
One night, Lesley and I went to this really beautiful boardwalk over the sound. It was seriously like straight out of a movie! And, the breeze and temperature were just right that night!

|Rockin' while we wait. :)|
The whole week we have PERFECT weather! We seriously couldn't have asked for better. Most days it was sunny and in the 80's, which to me is perfect for the beach. We only had maybe 15 minutes of rain the whole time we were there.
|See? Beautiful days.|
