Beach Days || Port A.

Pure joy, shrieks, and sheer excitement overwhelmed the air when the announcement was made! The question asked by half a dozen little people was “could it really be true?!” Yes, we were headed to the beach!! :) Though a few of us knew in advance, we waited to tell the munchkins of our beach plans until the day before our departure due to the fact they would wear themselves and us out with anticipation. ;) But once they found out we were headed to Port A., they counted the seconds until our departure! Bags packed, chickens pinned up, dogs fed, shuttle bus cleaned, food prepared, and we were off!! Yes, we all went looking like natural-born tourists with “Hawaiian” style shirts & over-sized sun hats and returned red as lobsters. ;) In my opinion if your going to go to the beach, you might as well look like a tourist! :) 4 days filled with sand, sunshine, and seashells. For Emmi, this was her first time to experience the sand beneath her tiny toes and it was such a fun blessing to watch her experience it! We were beyond thankful for the “mini” vacation and the time spent together. In between trying to fix severe lens fog, I managed to take photos and a little bit of video. So, how about a million and one pictures from our Beach Days at Port A.? :) Plus a video!

How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.”
Psalms 139:17-18

↓Picture Credits go to my Dad! We obviously misjudged the size of the oncoming waves and what started out as a “picturesque” photo turned into a shower. ;)

“Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.”
Psalms‬ ‭62‬:‭1-2‬

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20
