St Andrew's State Park

It's official, we can't get enough of the beach.  It seems almost magical that we can get up in the morning, decide to head to the beach on a whim, and be back in our own beds the same night.  I'm not sure if the novelty will ever wear off.  I hope it doesn't.
Even though it's Florida, most people refer to the panhandle as "LA"... Lower Alabama

Can't hardly wait

My favorite beach activity

making sure the crabs are still there

Who can resist the bum shot?

The weather cooperated perfectly and we even survived our first encounter with a jellyfish. 

We've decided the beach is a trip we must take at least once a month. And we can! I still can't get over how close it really is.  We've learned how "not" to do it these last two times, but with some keen observation  of the locals, we know an Easy-Up and a Sand Wagon are the next two purchases we need to make.  You should have seen us this time trying to stake down a tarp and some poles.  We looked ridiculous.  Actually, what we looked like were beach novices, which we are, but not for long.  I guarantee it! 


  1. Wow Ben! That looks painful! Are there a lot of jellyfish? Are they hard to avoid? I would have been really scared but you look brave. What a fun weekend at the beach. Brooke, I've heard of a few people who think beach and sand and knitting go together perfectly well. I'm not sure I'd want to try it, but if you're there all day, you might get a few rows done.

  2. I'll have to try it. It's not the sand I'm worried about, it's Miss Sadie and her little fingers. In a few years we should plan a yarn retreat on the Gulf Coast. Believe it or not, there's some great yarn shopping to be had in Panama City.
