Things I'm Going to do at the Beach

We head on out to the beach in just a few days. The cat sitter is ready, I'm not! But, all I need to do is throw some clothes in a suitcase and a couple of swim suits and I am good to go.

Things I plan on doing at the beach this year: long morning walks in the sand, take myself out to breakfast at the Greek place in Time's Square. Walk some of the back streets and take a few shots of doors for my album, watch the dolphins move across the Gulf in the early morn, coffee on the lanai, float in the pool with a beer in one hand and try hard not to burn my lips off (again). The reflection from the can can be a killer...lol. Catch up on our friends' lives. Things I do not want to do: I want to not answer the phone, not think about our house not being sold yet, not worry about classes filling, or getting albums done, not worry about Hurricane Season.

Sometimes our lives fill up with the have tos and the shoulds. Everyone needs at least ten days (even if they are not all together) to relax and just not think, to rejuvinate and not be responsible, to have endless day after day filled with nothing but what that person wants to do and mine starts Wed.! Posted by Picasa

I'm going to live vicariously through you while you are the beach (I need to spread this vicariously living around, you know--I'm sure Kip is tired of me being her shadow!). I think the last time I actually relaxed was when I was with you! See how good your friendship is for me? Wish I could join you this time, but I'll close my eyes and listen for the surf and image ocean (or gulf) breezes. Ahh, I feel better already...

I have to agree with Anne. I will live vicariously through you next week as I am in the middle of class registrations, I will take a moment to be at the beach, burning my lips off!
Everyone should have a week at the beach once a year.

I just wanted to say thank you. For the well wishes and just for reading in general. It really means a lot to me. I hope the beach goes as well as you want it to.
