I am blogging to you from the beautiful beaches on the gulf coast of Florida. Our boys have the week off from school so this is basically our summer vacation.
We weren’t sure if we would be able to come because of hurricane Ike, but since he decided to “go west young man”, we came on down. (We have family in Houston and were very worried about them the entire time. Thankfully they are all right.)
The waves here were incredible the first couple of days. In fact, the first day the beaches were marked by double red flags – which means do NOT go into the water!
Each day, though, the waves have calmed down and today they were quite calm. I will try to get some pictures up to share in the next couple of days.
In the mean time, I will be having some much needed vacation and family time. And next week, I’ll be back to a more regular schedule.
