Mr. SP, Mama, and I spent a quick weekend at the beach. My students come back to school this week, so it was nice to have once last getaway before the madness begins.
When we arrived on Friday evening it was sunny and pretty. After settling in, we walked down to the beach. Had we known that it would rain most of Saturday, we would have spent Friday evening on the beach.
Friday night we ate at Blue Moon Beach Grill, one of our favorite spots, and it was delicious as always. Mama and I had fish tacos and Mr. SP had shrimp and grits.
Saturday we battled unreal traffic to drive to Pine Island for a tennis clinic. What is usually a 20 minute drive took over an hour. The shot below was taken on the way back to the house. You can see how thick the traffic is for those headed north.
We ate a late lunch at Sam and Omie’s. I ran into a former student and enjoyed catching up with him while we waited for our food. It was pouring down rain and I think everyone on vacation was out to eat for lunch.
On the way back to the house I found a chair in the trash that can be fixed. (I think.) Mama laughed at me for taking it! This car had four poodle passengers. I couldn’t resist walking over to pet them.
What a great weekend! We hope to go back at the end of September and I’m already looking forward to it.
