Hello friends, I am back on EST and only slightly singed. Our beach trip got off to a bit of a rocky start. Friday started off with a little work drama, and it looked like I would have to work late, but one of my coworkers took pity on me and offered to cover so I could leave at my normal time. She has cookies, brownies, cinnamon rolls, or some other “thank you” baked good coming her way. Anyway, there wasn’t any beach on Friday due to the torrential downpour that followed us from Tallahassee to Orange Beach, but we still had fun hanging out with our Friends and laughing over how completely drenched we got running to and from the car. I also found another of the Ben & Jerry’s vegan ice creams while we were picking up basics for the condo. That was pretty cool bonus.
Saturday dawned chilly but clear, and we all made it down to the beach to soak up a little sun. Okay, the others soaked; I covered myself head to toe in 100SPF and held out as long as I could. After I started turning pink, Andy and I went off and did a little adventuring. Nothing too crazy; just exploring the area and enjoying the sprawling sand dunes. The day wrapped up with dinner at a local greasy spoon and everyone staying up way past their bed times laughing and reminiscing. Sunday we went out for brunch, and then it was back to Tallahassee. It was a quick trip, but we had a great time.
