Hanging on......

Though cool weather is approaching, and YES I am very ready for the campfires and cinnamon candles, a little part of me is still hanging on to the summer!  I feel that my pale white skin has not gotten the golden glow that it deserves!  I want one last chance to lay in the sand and sweat until I can't stand it anymore!  So to satisfy that one last need for a possible sunburn, but hopefully a tan (fingers crossed), last week we packed up and headed to Cape San Blas, Fl!!  Ever heard of it??  Not many people have!

Cape San Blas is a 13 mile strip of land, only 1000 feet wide in certain spots.  The Gulf of Mexico is on one side, and the St. Joseph Bay is on the other!  It's a great place to vacation if you want a very secluded slow paced environment!  It's the complete opposite of Panama City!  There are no condo towers or souvenir shops.  There isn't even a single red light on the cape!  And one of it's well known features is that it's completely dog friendly!  We did not take Max and Bailey with us this time, however they have been before!!  Our vacation consisted of.....

Crystal clear water.......

Never ending shells.....

They were everywhere!!!

We collected a ton of huge, whole, unbroken shells!

Clouds that were AMAZING.......

low flying clouds.....absolutely beautiful!!

My favorite shot of the whole trip....I even captured a little birdie in the bottom of the picture!

It's like heaven shining down on us.....

Sunsets never disappointing......

The view from our house....

Perfect timing!

Gorgeous!!  However if you look at the clouds above....mother nature is brewing up something nasty for us!!!

Wishing this vacation would never end!!

Landscapes that were unreal.....
Beautiful trees surrounded us!!

Huge bolders at the coastline

The tree stumps in the water are what's left of Pine trees after hurricanes and erosion have turned the forest into coastline....

Absolutely amazing to see!

Nature at it's best!

This is the only Lighthouse on the cape...It is 96 feet tall!!

Much enjoyed family time...
I  love this little girl!!

The concentration.....

Making sure Daddy does not get sunburned!!

The three of us!

No Fear!!

Silly Daddy!

Good throw!!

The discovery of my new favorite restaurant...

This was an old gas station turned into an oyster bar!  Quite possibly the coolest place I have ever been!  Great music, laid back atmosphere, self serve draft beer, and the BEST baked oysters I have ever eaten!!!

mmm....I can still smell it now!!!

I love how vintage everything was!

Now that I've squeezed in one last beach trip, I say Bring On The Fall!!  Time to carve pumpkins!!

To see the parties I'm linking to go HERE!!
