This weekend LB decided we were going to
Switch It Up
and do something other than the norm.
When we met at home Friday evening after work he announced that we were going out.
Usually we are both mentally exhausted by Friday and will stay at home on Friday night, saving our date night for Saturday. LB thought it would be a nice change have dinner out and enjoy one of our favorite cover bands. In addition, I was instructed to pack a bag for the weekend. We hit I-95 and exited on South Beach Parkway to the Hampton Inn and checked into our room.
Then we walked over the restaurant that is quickly becoming a favorite
Keeping it carb-free, dinner was a side salad and hot wings. Under a spotlight.
Ain’t Too Proud played into the night and, as always, we enjoyed their music.
after we enjoyed the complementary breakfast in the lovely Hampton Inn, we headed to Mickler’s Landing for a day at the beach.With this being our first trip to Mickler’s Landing, we were surprised to find there is no longer a boardwalk to the beach. Apparently it had to be removed due to the damage caused by hurricane Matthew in 2016. Nevertheless, the hike through the sand was good exercise and the flowers were cute.so were the seagullsIt started out as a sunny day and I was happy to have the opportunity to work on [my hopes for] a tan.except on my face!
The sunny day was short lived as the looming gray clouds moved ever closer.We cut our walk down the beach short and took cover under the umbrella.But not before I managed to find these…five reasons to NOT put my body in the ocean.
And an addition to my collection.
And now as I sit here typing, I have already enjoyed a wonderful weekend, and it has only just begun.
