Up, Up And Away
We are just counting the days until the beach wedding. Plans are coming to an end and the vendors have all been selected. Let's just hope there are no Hurricanes heading for the gulf during late summer...one small worry lingering in the back of my mind. Storms in the afternoon...oh yes, this can almost be a daily occurrence when living in Florida, but as quickly as they come in off the ocean, they move along at the same rapid pace.
Taken last week....Escambia Bay
If you are somewhat of a daredevil, there are really fun things to plan for your beach vacation like jet skiing, deep sea fishing or perhaps, parasailing!
Rob and Darling ready to fly...I elected to stay grounded and take the pictures
Harness secure....off you go
On the way down

Everyone gets a little dip in the bay...wooo-hoooo

Now, it was time for a good seafood dinner and the evening cocktail.
