we got to the beach just before tropical storm nate arrived.
this might have been the kids favorite time to play, with the overcast skies and huge waves.
double red flag, so we didn't get allll the way in, but we did put our feet in the water. cool to see the ocean before, during, and after a storm.
Isaac's sis, amber and family stayed in the same neighborhood just down the street from the house we rented in seacrest, which is next to rosemary beach.
got caught in the middle of some sand throwing
we had one really rainy morning, we went skating and to an arcade. biked in the afternoon.
the rest of week was perfect, even hot for October. 87ish degrees most days.
last year we found tons of hermit crabs. one year it was jelly fish, yikes. and this year was the year of the sea cucumber. they were everywhere, and jane lauren was obsessed.... even named them 'jay collins' after one of her fav preschool buddies:)
lots of lazy slow breakfasts and a little school make up work.
pumpkin patch is ab 5 mins away, near panama city, at a state park
one day, there were tons of really really cool unbroken shells. guessing from the storm?
i have never been so excited to collect shells, annette as my best helper.
