Our flight left EARLY from Indy,
The group flying from Dayton arrived safely, and didn't waste any time hitting the beach.
Noah had his own beach tent.
It was a good spot for napping.
In addition to taking a break from social media, I also decided that I didn't want to spend every minute taking photos. You may not believe it, from the number included in this post, but I actually spent lots of time without the camera in my hand. Of course, between Darci, Jennifer, and me, we have well over 1000 photos. True story.
We always brought the cameras out for the sunset, hoping to catch the perfect shot of the big orange ball sinking in the water. It doesn't always happen that way, but it is still one of our favorite times of day on Seven Mile Beach. Of course, Boomie's rum punch adds to the festivity.
Andrew is ready for the sunset with a cute yellow headband.
Andrew tried it from a higher perch. Showing our Pirate spirit from afar. :)
I think Haleigh might have been doing a version of 'Let it Go.'
Ella making a castle.
Sand is so much fun.
The girls loved the beach and the water, and I spent lots of Granny time in the water with them.
Matthew liked the water as well, and did lots of snorkeling and boogie boarding with some new friends he met.
Although the trip wasn't without incident - lights that didn't work, a cut finger on the coffee table glass, a broken dishwasher, a nasty stomach bug, several hours without water, a stolen credit card, and a two-hour flight delay on the way home - they are first world problems all, and didn't take away from our time together on a beautiful island.
Bye bye, beach. See you next time!
