So, the Evans clan spent the week before Thanksgiving in Florida, on St. George Island, and it was fantastic! I really can’t wait to go back!!!
There were a ton of shells the first day on the beach. Didn’t see them to quite this extent the rest of the week.
Oh, yeah. He had fun. Until he came down with a fever the next to the last day there. 😦
We rented a couple of kayaks, and they were so much fun! So glad we did!
Ryan did really well with the water. He liked it coming to about his knees, but would then run back up, and continue with his more important work of digging. I was fine with this; I didn’t have to worry about him around the water. 🙂
The off-season beach life… TAKE ME BACK!
Not the greatest picture, but I had to include it. I’m not sure I know anyone else who would actually take boffers to the beach. Love my family!
See? The WHOLE beach to ourselves. It was amazing!
It was chilly the first couple of days we were there, especially in the mornings, but the water was too captivating to stay in side!

Gloriana had me up earlier than I would have liked on vacation, but I did get to see a couple of beautiful sunrises!
— And here I skip a day of adventure which deserves a post of its own, and involves rather more story-telling than I have time or inspiration for at the moment. —
Morning walks on the beach, coffee in hand, were one of my favorite things. One morning Sam and I saw the dolphins playing about 25 yards out. It was amazing to watch!
He loved running up and down the beach as we walked slowly along behind him.
A couple of the days were really still, and the water was amazingly clear. I actually braved the water (without a kayak) those days. The other days were breezy enough for me not to want to get too wet.
❤ my dork!
The last full day came with the biggest swells we’d seen all week. They had a lot of fun playing in them. Sam and I were dealing with a sick moose, but we made it down to watch a couple times, and Sam went out when Ryan was napping in the afternoon.
I may have preferred the calmer, clearer days, but the wind did make for some picturesque waves!

I’m ready to go back. Can we please go back?!
