God blessed us with another sunny day at the beach ~ even more beautiful than yesterday and totally storm/rain/black cloud free
Knox, Kerry, and Kelly enjoyed some pool time first ~ Kerry launches Knox into the water ~ this kid has become a water baby this summer ~ thanks for the picture, Kelly!
Knox and Grandpa started another project ~ the original idea was to build Noah's ark
Beach clouds are the best
Kelly and Kerry nested in their circle of shade ~ today was hot and sunny and very windy ~ red flags were flying again
Collecting water for the project
He made several trips ~ serious business
Noah's ark or Noah's submarine/castle/thing?
Super vivid effect ~ sky reflecting in the waves
Supervising the project
Kelly using that life vest to lift Knox over the rough waves ~ Knox had a great time in the ocean
The completed project ~ hard to categorize this ~ so you be the judge ~ the Titanic maybe?
Our beach chair neighbor became agitated with the gulls trying to steal her food ~ she ran back and forth, shooing them away, while I took pictures [I thought great! Maybe I can get some shots of gulls in flight]
This was the only decent shot I managed to snap ~ but the beach chair neighbor lady was pretty entertaining
One last dip in the sea ~ thanks, Kelly, for the picture
Parting shot ~ Always hate to say goodbye to the beach ~ Hope to return again someday
Mellow Mushroom for our last supper ~ that's my Kozmic Karma ~ Delish! ~ Our server was a sweet and gracious young woman from Italy who spoke English beautifully in her Italian accent ~ here in America to earn some money ~ she's been here since May and is more than ready to go back home in two weeks ~ apparently Italians come here to study engineering or dentistry ~ she was into dentistry ~ also apparently American coffee is the pits ~ she was looking forward to Italian coffee ~ I enjoyed hearing her speak
Destin Commons ~ Bass Pro shark ~ thanks for the selfie, Kelly!
Family Kimbrough and Jaws
Kelly and Knox racing around at the go-cart place across the street from Gulfgate ~ thanks for the picture, Kerry!
Here we are already at the end of our vacation ~ always flashes by, doesn't it? ~ Nothing left to do but pack it all up again and head north to Tennessee in the morning
