Wednesday at the Beach

No woodworking this week as I’ve been on vacation.

This last weekend Heather and I traveled to Florida for our daughter’s wedding on the beach of Anna Maria Island.  They rented a beach house and gathered the whole family for the weekend to enjoy the celebration.  I didn’t do much except eat, drink and enjoy.  On our last night on the island we walked out to watch the sunset.

I have no idea who the person is in this photo.  There were a lot of people on the beach and all seemed to want to get into my photos.  Still, it’s kind of an interesting picture: lone person, birds and the setting sun.  I feel a poem coming on…

The light on these trees was interesting.

Trees in the waning light.  Yes, that's my shadow.

This is the beach next to the house.

Our daughter and her new wife are now on their honeymoon somewhere far, far away enjoy a well-earned rest and time alone.

But with the joy of Facebook and Instagram we did get to see what they had for dinner tonight…

If you need me – I’ll be at the airport.

    the lighting on some of those pics makes the sand look like snow, or maybe I just have snow on the brain!

  6. Congratulations! Beautiful photos. I especially like the sunset and birds. I did a double take on the white sand like some others too. Sure looks like snow.

  7. Wonderful! The woodshop will be there when you return 🙂 I swear I did a double take on the sand/snow pictures. Glad to read it is indeed still warm in Florida without snow covered beaches.

    We really like Anna Marie Island…feels like Florida fifty years ago. No high rises, I thjnk nothing over three stories high. Nice beach, beautiful water, great food. Hope you enjoyed your mini vacation.
    Congratulations on your daughter’s wedding.

    Wonderful place both for a wedding and a break. Was the wedding on the beech?
    I have looked up Anna Maria island and am having wishful thoughts. Much worse jet lag from old U.K. though. Sun-starved people might just……:)

    • This wedding was done just on the edge of the beach on a wooden walkway. There were other wedding parties there who set up right at the water’s edge. and yes, the jet lag would be worse for our UK friends, but worth it, really worth it.

  13. Congratulations, Andrew. What fun, to launch a child. My kids are late-20’s and not even close to pairing up. They need to get moving!

    Congratulations to your daughter. I presume that the sand is pure white rather than Florida has been hit by an unexpected blizzard!
