{beach vacation 2010}

Wow, I have a lot of catching up to do!
I took the summer off of work to spend more time with Little Petunia and the new puppy.  We went on our annual beach vacation with my family and had a terrific time.  We were so happy to see that no oil had washed up onto this particular area of the Gulf.  The Santa Rosa Beach and Dune Allen Beach areas were as pretty as ever with just the usual June seaweed in the water.
The beach was beautiful.



Two of my sisters walking on the beach with Lil P -- it's so nice to be able to take a walk in the evening with no mosquitoes!


Hubby and I took a long drive down 30A and had a lunch date at George's in Alys Beach.  The food there was amazing!  I think this is my new favorite beach vacay restaurant.

Heavens...your daughter is growing into such a poised and lovely young lady. I haven't seen pictures of her on here for a while.

You look lovely as usual. Happy summer. Hope you're enjoying yourself.

We were there at the same time from what I remember about your tweets, and the water was beautiful! We should have eaten at George's. I will definitely have to remember that for our next beach trip. The pictures are beautiful! I love your coral dress and turquoise necklace.

Hi there~~

Ms. Petunia, you look marvelous. Where did you find such an amazing necklace? It's fabulous. Little P. is as beautiful as always. Also, your sisters look very sweet gals. I'm happy to hear that your beach vacay was oil free. Missed you greatly and happy to see you're back.

I'm putting in my post request if that's ok. I want to see that adorable little puppy of yours. She's too precious. Does she still watch The Hills? She's so trendy. :)
