My Summer Vacation, by dale LOL ;)

Warning, this post is picture heavy. You might want to get a cup of tea first.
We interupt dollhouse miniatures for vacation photos. No you can not leave, you just sit right there and enjoy it. ;)
My view, driving in tandum.

We arrived!

Our first guest. Of course, I said, "Hello, dear!" :)

The sun was just beginning to set.

Look at the beautiful pastel colors!

View from the left.

Straight ahead.

And to the right.

The next day, the sky was this brilliant shade of blue.

How to hide from the sun 101.

Much better inside the Cabana tent. :)

The "Compound." Boys tent is in the front, then the girls tent and then the parental units are in the back. The cabana is just peeking out from behind the truck.

I love this tent! It's huge for one thing, and you can unzip it and let the sides gather like curtains. We'd do that, but, it's also our protection from the mosquitos, that feasted on us the night before when we had no where to hide!

Our little place in the sand. :) I have more pictures of middle daughter sleeping at the beach, apparently, that's how she spent the majority of her time.

Oldest brought along a Chemistry text so she could try to test out of taking the class. Which she did succeed at. :)

Daddy and Mommy and baby makes three. Some painted ponies. When horses are on the beach, it's hot. When they're in the water it's really hot!

Here's my "MOMster" truck at our other favorite beach, the National Park, where you can drive right up to the ocean. :) It's very cool there.

The gang in the water. We brought oldest daughter's bf along with us.

The view from in front of the truck.

To our left.

And, to the right. Vehicles park around two hundred feet apart.

Hubby made me take this picture. Our baby among the clouds.

So peaceful. See how far away the other cars are? I must have had the camera on telephoto for the other shots.

Here's a motley crew if ever there was one.

After a storm. No one's on the beach, dangerous rip tides.

This is low tide. We lost half of the beach to the ocean.

See the line in the sand? That's where high tide is, half way up the dune. When hurricanes are coming up the coast, it's not unusual for the ocean to go over the dune.

And then, there were two. I took oldest off to college and hubby took the younger two to band camp.

One day, the ocean was this lovely shade of green.
Last day four wheeling.

This guy is the "Terminator." (giggles)
Well, that's all folks, hope you enjoyed the show.
Next time, we'll go back to miniatures. :)


  1. I am so jealous! Love this beach!
    Where are you? I've never seen horses on a beach before. Beautiful!

  2. Sheesh, it's already too popular as it is! I have to make reservations a year in advance.

    Assateague Island State Park, Maryland.

    Which reminds me, I need to make reservations. ;)

  3. Just wonderful!! what a great time you must have had. I just came down the eastern shore today!! what a beautiful area.

  4. Amazing pics!!! Looks like you had a wonderful time, and I'm glad!

    Lori :0)

  5. Love it! Love it! Thank you for sharing you beautiful vacation!

  6. It looks like a great time in a beautiful place. I love the beach! Sand and all :-)

  7. It looks like a great time in a beautiful location. I love the beach. Sand and all :-)

  8. Beautiful beach scenes! I fantasize often about our selling our house and farm and moving to the beach but we'd still have the same headaches, stresses and still have to work--just a more crowded location. We're about five hours from our Myrtle Beach, SC and I love it!


  9. Lovely photos, Dale. It looks like a wonderful place to vacation. Your children look to be similar in age to mine but both of my girls are now in college. Son is a jr. in high school. Aren't they fun as young adults? (No sarcasm intended - I really do think they are fun. :-) )

  10. De, I think I've enjoyed every age and every stage they were in, well, mostly. ;) Mine are 15, 16, 17. One in college, one a jr and one a sophmore, so pretty close in ages. :)

  11. It was in the second comment.

    Assateague Island State Park, Maryland. :)

    off to look for your last comment. ;)


I love to hear what you have to say! Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. :)
