On vacations (or not wanting to come home...)

We are back to reality.  
Durn it.
It was a great week!  
We drove down to Cape San Blas, FL on Saturday and got there in the dark.
The next morning we got up to this...

View from our bedroom
Walkway over the dunes to the beach

We saw a lot of this


And this

Ate some great gulf shrimp

Creole Shrimp over grits at "The Hut" in Eastpoint
 
Went fishing- didn't catch anything but saw lots of dolphins!
There was virtually no cell phone service which was great because hubby couldn't work (well, he snuck in some computer time but it was not much so I won't complain.) 
On the way home we stopped at the U.S.S. Alabama in Mobile to let the kids run a bit.  They had a great time looking at the ship and lots of cool airplanes.   Ate lunch at Felix's Fish Camp, and it was great.  
Now to lose the five pounds I gained...
