We are HARD CORE, people.

So our week at the beach turned out.....COLD.  We had ONE day of really nice beach weather and the rest.....not so much.  Did we make the most of it?  Hell yeah we did.  And we had a blast. 

Yesterday, our last day, was butt cold but we decided we HAD to go to the beach and soak it up (before the massive rainfall a few hours later!).  Let me tell you.....this beach was EMPTY except for a lone biker now and then.


Our umbrella and chairs were the only ones in sight. The wind beat at us and tangled our curls.    The chill cut right to the bone (and I had on three layers!).  The girls (and Alain) built a sandcastle with a long gully that led down to the ocean.  


After dropping Alain and the kids at the beach, I went to the store to pick up some coffees for Alain and I.  While there, I passed by the Krispy Kreme display and noticed the bags of mini white powdered donuts. Well, you have no idea how much white powdered donuts remind me of going to the beach with my family when I was little.  My Dad always bought them.  Isn't it amazing what sticks with you? Of course I picked up a bag, purchased it and took it the beach to surprise the girls.  And surprised they were!  It occurred to me that maybe they've never eaten white powdered donuts. They went NUTS.  Especially Clara.  She seriously ate about 1/2 the bag by herself.  She didn't want to share with anybody else.  


There we sat, all cuddled up under the umbrella, eating white powdered donuts. In the freezing cold. On an empty beach. And it was pure bliss!

Just for fun......we took these few pictures for you, Dad.....hope you like them!!!  




We're back home now but already missing the beach.  Cold weather and all.

    1. I agree, Janice ~ I may have been cold but I was at the beach. I'd rather be cold at the beach than comfortable elsewhere. Ha!

  2. I don't know how you stood the cold weather! I've been cold at Kiawah in June before (but I'm always cold!). There's nothing that a little Krispy Kreme doesn't fix!

    1. Hi Jeanette, Like you, I am always cold. I had on 3 or 4 layers most of the week and the rest of the family would be running around in one layer with a jacket. And yes, Krispy Kreme helps everything!!!

  3. Oh those donut photos are so CUTE!!! Those are my favorite kind too, and I always hate when someone brings them to work because they are the hardest for me to resist. I'm glad you guys powered through and made the most of your beach time! Makes me proud! :o)

    1. Hi Deb! Yes, we always try to make the most.....I have loads of pictures and just need to find time to go through them all and decide what to post. Clara & I are still traveling and I'm ready to get home and get back into our normal routine. I am pooped!

  4. Oh, how wonderful! I would have done the same thing, gone to that beach no matter how cold!!
    And I love those photos of y'all with the white sugar all over your lips!
    If you think about it, that is a fun thing to eat at the beach since it looks so very much like sand. You must have had clever parents!

  5. Little powdered donuts remind me of my Grandmother. I don't remember the last time I ate one! These pictures are great! I can bet your Dad is going to have at least one of them put in a frame! Way to be hard core you guys! xo
