It was a mini vacation (not xs related)

So, yesterday (Saturday), I had to work. When I was done, DH came & picked me up and had a bag packed. He said we were going to the beach!! Woo Hoo! We tried to go to Haputo Beach but it was closed. Such a shame since it is a gorgeous beach and so secluded since you have to have Navy base access to go to it. Here is a picture of Haputo Beach earlier this year:
We ended up at Ritidian Point beach. DH had packed cheese & crackers and some delish gourmet tuna salad with our own tomatoes in it for us and a container of iced tea to drink. He also put in my bathing suit (God love him, he does try...I just need to suck it up and get a new suit...this one is about 3 sizes too big and I know my boobs would fall out instantly), and our snorkeling gear. Unfortunately, Ritidian Point is not good for swimming or snorkeling. Too many people have drowned there due to the strong rip current. So, what did I do? I sat my bum down on a towel (didn't put on my suit), had some snacks and tea, and ended up laying down and reading and almost going to sleep. We were only there about an hour and a half but afterwards, it truly felt like a mini vacation! Here is Ritidian Point beach yesterday:
It was a beautiful day...85 degrees and sunny (like usual) with a very strong breeze. So strong infact that once we laid down, we had sand flying at our heads. I ended up with sand all over my face and in my hair.

But it was glorious.

Today we went to a bbq on the beach at Dr. T's. We took Lady with us and dragged her out into the Ocean. On a leash of course. The water never went past my mid thigh and was mostly about mid calf since we were on the reef. She seemed to enjoy herself. It was funny when DH picked her up in the water...she was "air swimming". Have you ever seen that on America's Funniest Home Video's? It is hysterical in real life! I really almost peed myself.

DH is playing poker and it is almost time for "Sunday nights in Salem" to start on Soap Network. Off to stitch!

I'm green with envy over your wonderful day at the beach! I'll send you a Fedex pack of snow if you can send me one of beach (just a little water and sand, oh and see if you can toss in the warmth of the sun too. *grin*
