I may have burst with anticipation without them!
We missed Charity who is so dang far away in London, but were so grateful for the opportunity to soak in beauty like this:
..with the best beauty-lovers I know.
We rode bikes from Newport to Huntington:
Rode up and down the boardwalk lots and lots:
Watched the sunset each night…one night on the pier above, one night snuggled under towels (it was freezing), eating this beauty:
..and one night we took a little boat out to bask in the sunset in all it’s glory:
Saydi took a video that I can’t seem to upload right now, but I’m grateful to have it…we were all in that boat on smooth waters listening to the most gorgeous music, my Mom tearing up at all the beauty…
…right when we were almost capsized by the gigantic wake of a huge cruiser coming back from their own sunset basking.
Got my heart racing a little right there!
We also tried the “dock and dine” thing in that little boat which was quite an adventure of it’s own trying to navigeate through pitch dark waters. Made for some pretty great memories.
Not only did we soak up sunsets, but we liked the sunrises too…
Ok, it wasn’t really sunrise but close, and we did sunrise yoga (at “the wedge”)
On Sunday we sure tried to go to church…tried two different chapels that had empty parking lots and then realized it was regional conference.
Luckily the last church we went to had the coolest art work lining the hallways and we had our own little Sunday School taking it in.
Nothing better than looking at art with these guys.
Good beach talks:
…with the best pancakes:
…and a walk in all this beauty:
How I love these ladies:
