isn't life grand

we made it to the beach, just me and meems.
not sure we have ever done this before, without husbands or children, just us.
it is so nice and quiet...peaceful.

the sun...
the sand...
the surf...

we are enjoying all things beachy.










happy june everyone.

I can just hear your two sisters sitting there on the beach talking and talking--just like I do when I'm with best friend Judy... The talking never ends--does it?????

ENJOY... I only wish I had have had a sister... Oh Well!!!

Betsy

Today those sunny scenes look so good. It's rainy and 60-degrees here and I feel like I'll never get warm. A beach would make me feel so much better.

Meems said...

Marmee,
If only there were more hours in a day. I'm sure we could 'talk' them each away... no matter how many waking minutes were given us.

So absolutely peaceful here... time to head back to the beach for one more sunset my dear sister!

Hi Marmee, Your photos are so beautifully composed! Each one of them paints your story, your surroundings...and your words describe a precious time, 2 sisters spending some peaceful, quiet moments together! I miss the beach, the ocean--walking along on the sand, for miles and miles! Awakening early to watch the sunrise each morning--(One of my favorite pasttimes)! Thanks for sharing a part of your getaway with me;-) Jan

BETSY, DARLA, DIRT PRINCESS, JOEY, MEADOWVIEW THYMES, MUDDY BOOT DREAMS, ROSES AND LILACS, GAIL,
CHERYL,ABBEY, MEEMS, AND JAN,

it has been one incredible rest at the beach...we have thoroughly spoiled ourselves for the trips to come...no schedule...no rules...so much fun. thank you all for your wonderful comments. i still have a few busy days left in florida with a few nurseries to visit and plants to take home and a final visit with my daughter and to see what abbey has learned with her horse riding lessons.

Dear Marmee,
This is a treasure chest post filled with fantastic delights.
You and your sister are so special.
I am missing mine today so will enjoy knowing you are having great sis time on the beach.
