I lied.


So… when I said that you shouldn’t be jealous of us in my last post, I lied. You should be jealous. So, so jealous. 😉 Destin, Florida was BEAUTIFUL!! The Gulf of Mexico… is… one of my new favorite places on God’s green earth. Without. A. Doubt. And, being only four hours from New Orleans, we’re sure to go again. As a matter of fact, it turns out my cousin Kim lives not far from there!! How crazy is that?? She said next time we visit, we can spend the night, since we missed her this time. :)

But, there’s not much that can be said about yesterday, pictures will work much better.

This year, I’ve accomplished three items on my list of “Things to do before I die.” I went to the Grand Canyon in March, I’m living in New Orleans right now, and yesterday, I saw the Gulf of Mexico. Here’s me celebrating our arrival:

Me, Yay!

Clear water, a beautiful teal ocean, clean, soft white sand, waves that you can play in but won’t kill you… what’s not to love??

Beach Chair
Us + Beach = Love

We’ll put more pictures in our “coming soon” gallery. We decided not to spend the night there because all of the hotels, even the dirty little motels, were well over a hundred dollars a night! (Way beyond the means of a relief worker whose modest wage is NOTHING.) 😉 So we did a one day trip, and got back into NOLA at one AM. No sooner did we hit New Orleans East, though, did we the smell of mold roll into our car.
C’est la vie.
