We live in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains so a trip to the ocean is definitely a vacation for us! My parents wintered in Florida for over twenty years in their retirement. That meant the Callahan kids got to spend all of their spring breaks growing up......and into adulthood....in Cocoa Beach. In the spirit of full disclosure the Big Guy went the first time and then never again! He hates the heat and don't get him started on the crowds at Disney! So I would pack up the kids and leave him home with the dog for a week or two and head south!
The sand and shells in the jar in the photo were gathered by my daughter on one of her last trips to Cocoa Beach. Such wonderful memories!
This big sentiment makes me smile - certainly good advice for this past year!
I combined both the sketch and the photo this week at Fusion - always fun to do! Hope you join us!
