|I get so excited to finally see the water; just 3 bridges and we're there!|
Being empty-nesters, we want to see our kids, and our grand-kids, but it's the first time in our marriage that we aren't going to every time we get to take a few days off....we may SOMEtimes, but not every time. We need this time together. To walk on the beach hand in hand, to sit across the table from each other, to be together with no schedule or plans. ALONE.
|This was a new addition to the area we stayed at.|
|Hey! You don't have to worry how you look on vacations!|
You can be sure that the wind will blow at the beach!
|Our lovely view...|
|So relaxing, walking hand in hand, enjoying God's creation...|
I really wish we had started doing it earlier in life, in the midst of kids and laundry and feeling exhausted. It would have been good to get time away from everything and just go be US. Married. No work, no meals to cook. No nothing.
|Mark enjoyed walking the beach early in the mornings, but we ventured out together after breakfast.|
|There were lots of shells and treasures on shore...|
|Although it was rainy and cool most of our trip, it was relaxing!|
I'm sure we'll take time off in the future to see the rest of the family...but we'll always treasure the moments we can capture now, alone, my sweet love and I...
