Making Time to Paint on our Recent Camping Trip

Making Time to Paint on our Recent Camping Trip

Our vacation was spent enjoying some of the natural beauty that Florida has to offer.  We visited Jacksonville Beach, Payne's Prairie, Devil's Den and Rainbow River.  We spent almost as much time biking, hiking, snorkeling and kayaking as we did resting.  If not, it sure felt like we did.  I'm still sore but it was [...]

Surfboard Shopping Turns to Buying

Surfboard Shopping Turns to Buying

It was bound to happen sooner or later.  I finally purchased a surfboard after much deliberation.  My hubby convinced me to go out and spend the money.  As you may know, I have a little trouble letting go of money and especially now that we just went through Financial Peace University. We drove an hour [...]

First Surf Day of the Season

First Surf Day of the Season

Two weekends ago, I made my first trip out to the beach for this year.  The waves were small but we found a bump all the way down at the inlet in New Smyrna Beach.  I'm not sure what to blame but I had a pretty bad day.  It's the first time I wasn't able [...]

Surf Girl Saturdays

Surf Girl Saturdays

I used to have this routine when heading to the beach with my daughter, Taylor.  We'd get up early, say 7:30 on a Saturday.  We'd pack the cooler, throw our beach bags in the trunk and the surfboards on top of the car.  I'd drive us over to our neighborhood Panera Bread for a breakfast [...]

Easter Surf Festival, Cocoa Beach

Easter Surf Festival, Cocoa Beach

  Every 3 years or so I try to make it out to the Easter Surf Festival at Cocoa Beach.  I love it because it marks the beginning of the surf season for me.  The water is starting to warm up and the sun is bringing the temperature nearer to 80 degrees. Before I got out [...]

Spring Surf

Ok, so to be honest with you, I haven't surfed in over a year.  Not because I don't want to, but I was a little pre-occupied with getting married and working on our new house last year.  Our one attempt at a beach weekend didn't turn out as planned. I don't know about you but I [...]
