Just Beachy!

Snow White and I snuck out of town for a couple of days last week. We hit the beach for an "all girls" getaway! A statue of King Neptune greeted us upon arrival. The girl in the photo was so overcome by his grandeur that she had to rest for a moment. I was impressed with his abs. This is a sunrise view from our balcony. It makes me want to go back TODAY! Would you like to join me?



Snow White and her friend Cheerleader Girl took about a hundred pictures of themselves. I thought this one was especially cute. (SW is on the right.)



Our motto for the trip was, "Don't Worry, Be Happy!"




Not everything at the beach was beautiful. Our first day there, these two plopped down in front of the girls for a couple of hours. They put on quite a show - it seems that they each required an excessive amount of tanning oil. We were happy when they finally left, and we had a clear view of the ocean.




We were starstruck when King Neptune himself casually strolled by!



I'm already trying to figure out when we can make time to return to the beach. No matter how long you stay, it's never long enough.

We have a beach here, too! It's usually closed due to pollution and a man drowned there last night.
How's that for an uplifting Monday morning comment??

I too am a beach bum! It takes us 11 hours to drive to the closest beach. We went in May but with a 14 month old we didn't see as much of the ocean as we would have liked. Glad you had fun-great pics.

We live so close to the beach we're spoiled. It's always interesting what characters you can find there. :)

King Neptune is quite majestic!

Looks like HEAVEN. I'm ready to go back again! And your daughter and her friend are adorable. I love girls' weekends, they're the BEST.

Looks amazing..I am ready for the next round.
My trip to the beach is a two and a half hour flight to the Keepers then another 20minute drive from her house but it is always worth it.
Hey, King Neptune looks to have gotten a little flabby around the middle when he was spotted live on the beach.

I am literally laughing so hard I will wet my pants. I am a stone's throw away from VA BCH and I was a Neptune Festival Princess back in the day...that was halarious!!! You are quite a funny lady and I like it. Keep it up.

BHE..if we get us some of those KN hats, we'd have to special order them in a cone shape. I refuse to flatten my hair on the beach. Big hair comes in handy, especially, there because it distracts from other flaws.
KN is sooooo hot in that picture that he is giving me a case of the vapors. Gotta run and holler at Carlton to bring me a cold drink so I can set a spell on the veranda and cool down.
