One More Hour To Go...
First, let's get this morning's harvest out of the way:
Now, on to more fun stuff!
I had a few minutes, so here are some pics taken today. With Hurricane Bill churning up the surf for us, I took the kids out for a hike through the refuge out to the beach, in hopes of tiring them out! See, Daddy comes home tonight and the kids have been driving me crazy for the past 2 days asking every hour when are we picking him up! Tiring them out didn't work, but at least we were able to pass the morning hours quickly. We made it home just in time since the rest of the afternoon brought torrential downpours, severe lightning, and street flooding. It was hot this morning, and the kids managed to hike about 1 1/2 miles total. My kids are either awesome hikers or I am a terrible mother, lol! We brought plenty of water and a picnic lunch (all carried by me, I might add!) and saw plenty of wildlife along the hike to make it interesting. Although the beaches are all closed to swimmers now due to Bill churning the waters from afar, the surfers are out in full strength and we are looking forward to some good surf fishing tomorrow if it's not pouring. Daddy's car is already packed and ready, so I am sure for the next few days I will not be posting unless something earth-shattering-gotta-tell-everyone happens! We are looking forward to spending some time having fun before he leaves AGAIN in September, lol!
