Florida & 4th of July

The morning after the car ride from hell (seriously the worst road trip ever!) we woke up to an overcast sky. But who cares really when you're in FLORIDA!! We are still adjusting to the fact that we are in America!

The overcast sky didn't last too long and by the time we hit the beach it was a beautiful day in Destin Pointe. The colour of the water was incredible, so clear you could see all the schools of tiny fish swimming around your legs, and the temperature perfect. And the sand, oh the sand, the most soft, fine, white sand I have ever seen. Just incredible. The beauty of the beach left me speechless.

Chantelle and I spent most of the day lounging in the sun. The boys joined us for a while, but the were less keen to sunbake than we were, so we sent them off in search of food. Earlier they had spotted a BBQ ('grill' here in America!) so were in the mood for cooking up some steak! Yum.

I have to say that the beach is the absolute best medicine. I felt a million times better than I did the day before in the car ride from hell!!

So we spent Sunday soaking up sunshine and taking it easy!

Monday morning we woke to even more haze, and it took much longer for the sky to clear and the sun to make it's appearance. We started out with breakfast at Waffle House, followed by a little wander around a near by shop.

Chantelle and I again hit the beach. We decided to hire canoes, and we spent an hour paddling around the bay, about 100 metres from our house.

Following dinner we settled on the top back balcony to watch the 4th of July fireworks.

Happy Friday!
