Beach Trip 2012: Part 3

 

We left off part 2 of the trip after our amazingly fun day relaxing at the beach and playing some volleyball. Unfortunately, we had to be up bright and early Monday morning so Bobby could be at his conference for 8:00. We ate breakfast together before he left, and then I gathered my things and headed down to the pool. It opened at 8:00, so i was literally the first one down there. Here is what was behind me and the pool.

It was nice and quiet and I obviously had my pick of the chairs. I settled in and started reading my book, it was glorious.  There was a swim behind waterfall at the pool as well. I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love the sound of water. Whether it be waves, a fountain or the rain, I just find it so soothing.

I alternated between laying on my chair and dipping into the pool because it got very hot very quickly.

After about three hours, I decided to head back up to the condo and take a shower before Bobby got back from his conference. I was getting hungry for lunch and I made us sandwiches for when he returned. We spent the afternoon just hanging out in the condo, reading, watching TV, and being bums. It was awesome. We did however decide to head over to the Baytowne Wharf for dinner and to walk around.

For those not familiar with Sandestin, it’s huge, and on the bay side is this well, village, for lack of a better term. Condos, homes, shops, restaurants, all within walking distance. There are fun things for kids and families alike, and we had a good time just walking around.

We settled on a restaurant overlooking the water with a live band playing.

There was a nice breeze off the water so it wasn’t hot at all. Not to mention there were some scary dark clouds overhead! We enjoyed our food, and then went for a walk down the pier right outside the restaurant. You could see the marina, and there were some big boats!

We walked around the village for awhile, watching the kids, checking out the shops, and enjoying ourselves. Bobby even got a funnel cake.

Those of you familiar with Disney, this area reminded me of the Boardwalk resort area. Smile

This is getting lengthy, more coming up on the next beach post!

On the workout front, I completed day one of the Best Body Bootcamp yesterday, and wow were my arms jello! It was an upper body workout, so it didn’t bother my foot any which was helpful. I can’t wait for more! It’s going to be a fun 8 weeks!

QOTD: Are you a beach person or a mountain person? Or both?

Comments

  1. It looks so pretty there! We definitely need to join you guys one year!

  2. A book in the chair by the water? Absolute heaven. Glad y’all had fun!

  3. Great pics!

    I’m more of a beach person but I do like mountains too :)

  4. I love reading about all of your little (and big) trip. So fun!

  5. I’m very much a mountain person, but wasn’t always that way. After moving to Texas, I realized the great temperature contrast was very beneficial during the summer. I try to get to the mountains once each summer in order to get a break from the heat.

  6. So jealous of that beach!!!! Looks beautiful there!

    Can I like both?! I like the beach in moderation (sand and sunburn begin to wear on me). And I like the cabin that we got last year in the N. GA Mtns on the water. Hopefully we can do it again this year and I can make a more definite decision ;)
