The Alabama Vacation continues.... I love the beach. There's something so soothing and beautiful about it. If it hadn't been freezing every morning, and pretty cold throughout the day, I would have spent my entire vacation there. The waves crashing, the colors of the sky, the birds flying, and on our last evening, a dolphin sighting. I now realize just why people always vacation to the beach. Before last's year vacation to Florida, it had been well over a decade since I had last been. Now, in one year, I've gone to the beaches near Dunedin, Florida last December, a Great Lakes beach with Doug in August, and Alabama's Gulf Shores. Maybe next December it'll be another beach on an island or somewhere warmer. A girl can wish!
Many of these photographs were taken at sunset or sunrise.
|The best sand dollar we found. I'm glad I took a picture because it was about the size of a dime and as fragile as can be. It soon broke, just like the other small one I found. Some day I will find a big one!|
|My mom and I thought this guy was dead and I so I touched him...|
|He wasn't... just probably freezing cold and super slow.|
|My mom chasing after the heron ... here she is walking away after she was super close.|
|The prettiest shell we found, fully together and everything, and there had to be some sort of barnacles on it.|
