Salt, Sand, Sleep and Tears

What am I doing up at 5 am? I couldn't sleep, so I thought I would blog a little! We just came back from one of my most favorite places in the world! The beach! We went to Navarre Florida for my daughter's graduation. The first day we were there we had to go to PCC and find out about the graduation activities. The second day was graduation practice and later Beth's graduation. It was a beautiful ceremony! I was crying before she even walked into the door! I was crying because I was happy, sad and proud all at the same time! Then, when she did walk in, she looked at me and I squalled again! I am so proud of all my children! Before we knew it, the graduation was over. Now, we could relax and enjoy the rest of our vacation! Every day I couldn't wait for the sun to rise! As soon as it was day light I was up! Had to open the curtain and enjoy the beautiful view! the weather wasn't perfect while we were there. It was kinda cool and windy almost every day. We couldn't wait to get out feet in the white sand and beautiful Aqua water! The pool was warm and wonderful as well! We had some great food while we were there too! The condo we stayed in was beautiful, comfortable and amazing too! I loved my soft, comfortable bed! Since I woke up early, I was amazed to see the dolphins! They were teasing me by not jumping way up! I had to wake the children up because I didn't want them to miss it! One day, we went to see the Blue Angels practice! That was so awesome! We went to the Naval and Aviation Museum as well! It is awesome! I love lighthouses! So far, I have climbed three. Cape Henry in Virginia, The St. Simon's Lighthouse in Georgia, and last but not least, The Pensacola Lighthouse! It was 177 steps up and 177 back down! It was great exercise and my legs were so sore! But the view at the top was worth it!Then, it seemed, we went to sleep and woke up and it was time to come home. We had a wonderful time! I never wanted to leave the beautiful ocean but there is no place like home!
