It took us two days to get here, but it was worth it!
We just spent the whole day on the beach, starting with a 7:00 a.m. stroll on the sand dunes with thermos’s of coffee. We swam, basked in the sun, went back to condo for lunch and then back out again. We are now back in our condo, ready for a relaxing evening. Hubby made me this delicious Pina Colada, and we are getting ready to make some dinner – grilled chicken, corn on the cob and steamed broccoli. I have already cooked spaghetti and meatballs and pasta primavera.
I originally thought we would be eating out every evening, but thought better of it when a huge chunk of cash was spent eating out on the ride down. Instead, we opted to go to Publix and stock up on yummy fruits, veggies, cheese & crackers, chicken, steak and wonderful breakfast and lunch options. I spent $250 on groceries for the week (splurged on all organic) — money well-spent. Dinner out would have cost the four of us at least $75-$100 each night, and $250 will feed us all week, with leftovers. By the way, here is a pic of our kitchen. Who wouldn’t want to cook in this?
And, in case you are interested, here is the main floor of condo:
The weather is gorgeous here, a beautiful breeze by the water and, more importantly, beach chairs with a HUGE umbrella all set up waiting for us. We are literally steps from the ocean, and wake up to a gorgeous view each morning.
Other activities we hope to do include a sunset dolphin cruise, fireworks on the boardwalk and parasailing.
I’m slowly but surely relaxing and I can’t help but think of how badly I needed this trip. Hubby and kiddos are treating me like a queen, and I’m enjoying every minute of it.
I’ll check in again later this week, with hopefully more pics to share!
