Left Sunday after the usual flurry of packing. The drive down went well, get into our condo, and did the first night walk on the beach – that’s how I know I’m on vacation, when I see the ocean from more than our balcony.
Monday it was time to trek to the beach. Got sunscreened up, headed down and discovered that our umbrella from last year was done for. Jacob still doesn’t like the beach – the ocean is too big a water, and he *HATES* being in the sand. So he would dig in the sand while sitting on the beach towel. You can see how this is starting to shape up.
Hit the pool after lunch. Discovered Jacob didn’t like the pool either. But the playground was cool. aqnd Ray loves the waterslide in the bigger pool.
Tuesday wasn’t much different. Wednesday we skipped the beach in the morning. Might as well – jake hated it, and all ray wanted to do was waterslide :). At least my sister and her family showed up Wednesday evening.
Thursday my BiL’s best bud hung out, since he lives in Morehead now. Greg is an interesting guy, and he and Rob get each other into all kinds of shit. Not that I didn’t provide some beer and fuel to the fire myself Thursday night. Got some interesting revelations in those talks – some things I knew, some I didn’t. Mostly about my family’s dysfunctions, which are obvious when an outsider points them out.
Thursday and Friday were mostly Ray and daddy time. We swam, we played, we waterslid. jake started to overcome his fear of the water with Rob and Karen and my folks there. Maybe next year he’ll be less shy. We’ll see.
This morning we packed up and headed out. I’m tanner, tireder, and glad to be home. Lots to do before work on Monday.
This is, of course, just the overview. I’m sure I’ll post more later – or not.
