Heading on a " Girls Getaway "........

Can't wait till Sunday morning......My mom, sister, & I are heading out on a mini " Girls Getaway " to near Presque Isle State Park, Lake Erie ~ We haven't been there for well over 20 some years ~ We are packin up leaving the men behind & enjoying 2 days of lounging on the beach & doing some shopping :))) I love searching for beach glass while down at the Outer Banks in NC & hear there is supposed to be some up there too so I am excited!!! It is so pretty & has such a hstory to it ~ Looks beautiful in an old bottle ( like it originally started as :)) displayed in a window for light to shine through ......
It's going to be a HOT one, it's been int he 90's ( or close enough ) for most of July I swear so being in the water is where I belong!! heehee ~

Have a great weekend everyone ~~

Blessing to you all ~*~

Starfish Poem

This is one of my favorite pics I took ~ I could stay @ the beach forever :)))

Starfish Poem: "STARFISH POEM

One day an old man was walking down the beach just before dawn. In the distance he saw a young man picking up stranded starfish and throwing them back into the sea. As the old man approached the young man, he asked, 'Why do you spend so much energy doing what seems to be a waste of time?' The young man explained that the stranded starfish would die if left in the morning sun. The old man exclaimed, 'But there must be thousands of starfish. How can your efforts make any difference?' The young man looked down at the starfish in his hand and as he threw it to safety in the sea, he said,' It makes a difference to this one!'

At times in our lives, we are all the old man, the young man, or the starfish. Sometimes, as the old man, we don't see the purpose to actions. Sometimes, as the young man, we persevere and make a difference. And sometimes, we are the starfish who just need a little help."

Rainbows over the Ocean

We just got back from a week @ the beach in OBX , NC ( we stayed in Kitty Hawk in an ocean front home ) , just perfect!!!! I wish I could stay all summer!!!! We always go down over the 4th & this year I got to see my first rainbow over the ocean!! I was soooo excited :)))

The pictures don't show how pretty it was in person, it stayed for close to 20 minutes & kept getting brighter, actually half a double rainbow !! There were dolphins everyday, but the water was freezing!

Here are just a couple of my pics from our vacation...........def. had to make a little wish on that one!!!
