Absolutely still ocean this morning. I have never seen that, even at low tide on the Atlantic. Eerie even! Tons of little hermit crabs and more Jelly fish than I have ever seen in my life. (Been going to beaches since I was 2)
Those are all jellyfish pieces all up shore-
B hooked a huge sting ray but it broke the line when he got it close- it was his small reel. Those things fight like crazy! I was not quick enough to get a picture. A deer also went running up the dunes yesterday evening- he thought he was videoing but had camera turned around on phone. 😑
I so dread going back to reality next week.

Your beach pictures are getting me excited for summer! Except for the jellyfish.

It is cold at home, I am hoping we miss it though! Beautiful evening tonight- except that I stepped on some kind of fish in the surf. (Flounder maybe, it wasn’t a jelly fish or a crab but it scared me to death!) View attachment 372072View attachment 372073View attachment 372074View attachment 372075View attachment 372076
What a beautiful beach! It looks so peaceful.
That jellyfish looks like a giant pearl, I've never seen one IRL, so maybe I would've tried to touch it! 😖

Yuck - I’d be grossed out if I stepped on a fish! I love the beach but hate stepping on things in the water - that’s why I always have to wear wave walkers or some other type of beach shoe when I go into the water.

They supposedly can only sting you from the bottom but I would not chance it! Man of War are rare at least I hope around here but they can be fatal. These were cannonball Jellyfish. They sting but usually only make you sick and burns skin. Again not taking any chances though lol.

I jumped out of the surf pretty darn quick. The sand dollar hunting immediately ended. 😂

Laid my towels out to lay in the sun and could not help but get tickled. Mickey & Minnie are still with me. ;)
100 percent sunshine today! I decided to sit under the umbrella for awhile.. even with sunblock I can feel the rays! 8BBB4464-3509-4ED3-99D9-6D49504A7E2F.jpegE2998FEA-85F6-4DD8-B080-139B1B058DBA.jpeg

Love the Sand Dollar, are there a lot at that beach?
Tons! If you walk into surf as tide goes down you can find beds of them. I don’t take the green fuzzy ones because they are alive. I have a Christmas tree that I decorate with sand dollars all we found from here. Probably a box of 200 or more. Not many shells but sand dollar heaven. :)

Side tracking a little, but sitting on the balcony and heard a little fella scream bloody murder from the pool- around 2 or so, and apparently had a poo in the pool. Mom and dad yelling at the little fella- don’t move, what did you do. Swim Diapers People- available everywhere pull ups are sold. 😡 Not his fault, parenting fault. Ugh!!!!!

Well unfortunately, it looks like our trip is coming to an end a little early. I woke up with a horrible Rheumatoid Arthritis Flare. :( Don’t know if it was the food I normally avoid or the walking but I barely made it to the beach today. Have a doc appt for Friday. I have had an amazing vacation though and can’t wait to redo it again in 96 days. I wanted to make the trek to Cumberland Island tomorrow to see the horses but we will do that in August!
Thanks for following along on our adventures and will post my final thoughts on the long ride home tomorrow!

The blue of the sky is incredible!
And sorry to hear your vacation is getting cut short
The sky is insanely blue and gorgeous the last two days.
And thank you. I can’t complain at all though. We left May 4th for Disney and been here since the 9th. I feel very blessed to have done a vacation this long when we were at Disney in September and November for a week each. Also have August to look forward to as well. Very blessed and very thankful. 😊 And—- I miss my cats!!!!! 4704FFF0-899D-4F3A-837A-9EF7EF8D3859.jpegE4B4302D-EB58-4F30-AD2F-BC5D05E3A273.jpeg
