ever been in the ocean during a thunderstorm?

we have!

we are vacationing in florida this week and by golly, we just can't find the sun.
morning after morning we rise up to a few rays of sunshine shining through the blinds.
by the time we get up, dress, and gather up our belongings.. it disappears.

all that's left in the sky, is this....

well, today was like any other. however, we wake up and decide that regardless of these unfortunate circumstances we are going to make the best of this trip. so we did.

we loaded up the little red wagon. stuffed a few beverages in the cooler. grabbed the umbrella. and down to the beach we went.

it wasn't long before the winds began to pick up. the clouds rolled over top of us.

and this was the result...

it seemed like 70 mph winds & dime sized hail.. it wasn't too bad.

we stuck it through & put up a fight.

with a smile of course :)

greetings from Sanibel friends! More pictures to come soon :)


  1. Oh my goodness-I hope y'all find some sunshine!! Have a great trip!! :) xoxo

  2. this is priceless. I can do nothing but laugh at the picture where Cliff is tangled in the umbrella. I can only imagine what his words were. :) hopefully things will turn around and the rays will come out! memories in the making.

  3. oh my heavens! look at cliff almighty!!

  4. looks like fun even with the storms!
