When it comes to the perfect beach day, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of our trip probably ranked somewhere in the “five” to “seven” range. Thursday and Friday, however, were solid “tens” across the board.
Granted, a “six” at the beach is like a 22 anywhere else…but still. Thursday and Friday were off the charts. The sun was shining bright, and the heavy grey clouds from earlier in the week had been replaced by picturesque puffy white balls of cotton.
Intent on squeezing every ounce out of our limited amount of time remaining on the coast, we typically hit the beach before 9:00AM…lunches packed and all lotion’d up, ready to stay and play…
…right up ’til nap time.
Thursday was also July Fourth! Can you say “epic beach house pool party”?

Our night included a colossal cookout…
…finishing off the second case of homebrew…
…and even a few canoe trips with the kiddos!
Missy later broke out her festive Jello Jigglers…
…and of course, the sparklers once the sun went down!
The evening was capped off by watching the Sandbridge fireworks show from our roof-top deck. Aaahh-maze-ing.
The pictures don’t even come close to doing them justice. It was an Independence Day for the books…an instant classic.
With that…I’ll be back with the rest soon!
And yes. I’m dragging these recap posts on for all their worth…mostly because again, I still refuse to admit that our summer vacation is actually over. Part three coming shortly (as in Tuesday or Wednesday night) and then…finally…it’s back to your regularly scheduled Musings next week.
