An Evening Beach Stroll

by Courtney on June 17, 2011

Last night was such a great night!

The evening started out with nice glass of vino out on the patio while the boys (and Randi!) played a little b-ball.

Before I knew it, the sounds of the blender were whirling away in the kitchen and I was being handed a delicious strawberry margarita…made with fresh strawberries, no less.

Hey, when in Rome… Winking smile

For dinner, we all decided to stay in and order exactly what I had been craving all.day.long…

YUMMM!

I snagged a slice of sausage, peppers, and onions, a slice of margherita, and a BBQ chicken wing which was actually pretty gross and I gave it to Jay. The pizza, on the other hand, was fantastic.  Seeing as though just about everything I had eaten up to this point in the day was loaded with sugar, I was more than ready to dive head first into some salt and savory.

After dinner, we all decided it would be a good night to take a little walk on the beach. Luckily, we were early enough where we were going to beat the crab rush; trust me, I did not want to be there to see that again!

Somebody, however, missed the memo and was a little late to the show…

Yes, that would be my husband. Winking smile

It was such a perfect evening for a walk out on the beach. There were a few other people around here or there, but mostly it was just us taking free range of the sand and water.

Some shenanigans sure took place, and the dogs had a great time running around too.

I’m going to be so bummed to have to leave tonight…

Walking along the beach is one of the best parts! I love it when it’s really peaceful and empty, and you can just relax and feel the water on your toes :)

And I totally approve of the pizza!

We have never really found pizza worth ordering again in that area. This pizza looks great. Where was it from?

Looks like such a great vacation! Makes me want to go to the beach…which would be quite a long drive considering I’m in land locked Indiana :).

Looks like so much fun! So sad you have to leave today.

I’m not a chicken wing fan in general. I always feel like they’re not worth the fuss. If I’m going to get bbq sauce all over myself, at least the food must taste good!

Morning and evening walks on the beach when nobody is really around are the best. I want that pizza for lunch now!
