We spend our family Thanksgivings at the beach. My Dad farms through the summer, so we vacation in the off-season...and I have always loved that. We are usually on the beach in boots and stocking hats, but we have a blast. (And you can't beat eating Thanksgiving dinner while watching the waves.)
I shared my first round of favorite photos from our beach holiday in the post Salt Air in Our Hair, and I managed to take some of those with my "real camera" as the hubby calls it. But more times than not, I am snapping photos with my phone. So, below are more of my favorites taken through my iPhone and filtered through Instagram or Snapseed (sometimes both) for Insta-Friday.
I call this my Soda Counter Crew. We had awesome burgers, fries, and shakes at this fun little diner. I am so thankful for these three, my most treasured blessings.
This is one of my favorite little towns. I love the ships. I feel that the hubby and I need one in our lives.
And then we can just retire here. I would totally be ok with that. Maybe next year...next month...next week...
I love perusing little antique shops. I could seriously stay all day. But usually, I am pushing a two year old...in a stroller, and she likes to clear shiny, pretty, breakable trinkets from the shelves at her eye level. Perfect. I did manage to grab this vintage wood crate. I adore it. I'm thinking I might keep books in it.
This picture makes me laugh. Yes, we are at the beach, and this is how we spend some of our time. Oh, technology.
Those cute little boots didn't stay on those cute little feet once we hit the sand.
I just love these little feeties.
My little beach bum ;)
It was cloudy for a few days, but we finally saw the sunshine.
There is nothing quite like being at the ocean.
My dad and the munchkins. I thank the Lord for these priceless moments.
Trying to get them both to look at the camera at the same time is nearly impossible.
Their hats are cute, though, so it's all good.
This one decided to pack herself. I am most certainly not ready to pack. It's been such a wonderful week. Why do vacations go by so quickly? Reality, I am not ready to return to you. Just sayin'.
I hope you and yours had a blessed and beautiful Thanksgiving!
