This place is amazing. It’s one of those vacations where everything falls in to place, almost.
The kids have been jumping the surf at 8am each morning, and MM and I have managed to get a couple of beach runs in to burn off the calories from the excesses of each evening. Yes, we’ve even managed to light the charcoal grill:) Nothing better than burgers with Prosecco!
My afternoon margaritas have been cunningly disguised in my coffee cup.
The house, fortunately, is perfect – basic, but right on the beach. It’s amazing how easy the day becomes when you don’t have to pack bags and food for a day at the beach. Not to mention we can all chill out away from the sun when we feel like it. The only thing we’re missing are the dogs – they don’t deal well with the heat – I hope they are behaving for the house sitter!
I’ve been relishing living in bikinis, shorts and t-shirts. I packed light, and living with a capsule wardrobe is fabulously freeing. No decisions to make except choosing which shorts are clean.
Shorts – JCrew Factory bermudas // t-shirt – Target (old) // hat – Target // Flip flops – Havaianas // sunglasses – Ray-Ban Wayfarers
Of course we can never go away without drama. Poor Poppy managed to get half the deck in her foot on Sunday evening. I tried removing the splinter but she was obviously in pain. Monday morning we headed to Urgent Care. The poor wee thing had to have a huge needle in her foot for anesthetic then the Dr. had to use a scalpel to remove it – it was embedded in her foot so deeply! I held on to her for dear life – I never want to hear screams of pain like that again. I was in tears and shaking – and I wasn’t even going through the pain!! She was an absolute star and once it was all over all she was concerned about was the color of her bandage. I think she is feeling quite the hero now.
