It is always so sad to leave the beach, but at the same time it is so good to be back home in our own beds and beds that are free of sand. We really enjoyed our vacation this year. The water was breath-taking, the laughs were constant, the food was wonderful, and the memories will last a lifetime. We were even blessed one day with an unexpected firework display and an ice cream truck visit! The kids were thrilled.
We love to stay at Sunshine Cottage, which belongs to my father and step-mother. It is so inviting and comfortable. The house itself is great, with a full size pool in the back and furniture you aren't afraid to get really comfy on and read a good book. Our favorite hang-out place would be the front porch of the cottage with it's two white rocking chairs and a great swing. It is nestled in a gated neighborhood that is so quaint and peaceful. The people there are so hospitable and helpful. There is even a tram that takes you right to the beach and back. There's nothing not to like about the place. It is honestly a little piece of paradise.
Here are just a few pictures from our trip.
