PhotoStory Friday - Remembering Florida

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

I'm still trying to recover photos from my mac crash but I'm also trying to remember the details of our Florida trip. I really want to finish up the series soon. I came across these photos tonight and whole heartily wished I could be back on this very beach. It was beautiful and even though slightly chilly, it was so much warmer than here! lol!

We will make it back to Clearwater this year, but until then, I'll gaze at these photos and remember what a wonderful time we had together. The girls were fascinated with the beach, the sea and the shells. It was a lovely vacation spent chasing seagulls in the sand and walking the planks of the boardwalk.

Oh you make me want to go to the beach so much!!!! The blue sky in those shots is GORGEOUS.

So sorry about your mac crash...its happened to me and it rots!

Chris said...

Crashed a mac myself -- but it's still better than a PC!

Beautiful shots -- that water is about the same color as Emmy's eyes, isn't it?

Oh I know what you mean about Florida-and missing it. These photos are gorgeous. Ron and I lived in St. Petersburg for 10 years before moving back to NY-the cold :-) I miss that Beach too. Love this post-hope you have a spring filled week and that you get back to the beach soon :-)

Truly lovely! great shots!

imbeingheldhostage said...

I'm craving me some sun and sea just about now!!

Mac crash?? That made me gasp. You know those are rare, right? (Did I just rub salt water in the wound?)

Seriously-- I am so sorry-- there's nothing like losing everything on a computer (and yes, we've had 2 partial Mac crashes in the last two years).

Oh, I grew up going to St. Pete, so I really love that area!!

We are heading to the Gulf in June!

Kristen said...

Now I think that we MUST vacation in San Diego this year. Your pictures look like so much fun!

Your kids are adorable, and you can tell what an amazing time they were having!

Great PSF!
