The Sun Also Rises....

...on the Atlantic at 6:26 a.m. Delicious!

After a supposedly nine hour drive from New Orleans, (I took the touristy Beachfront Blvd across the Panhandle), I finally arrived in Daytona Beach Shores Saturday night.

Yesterday, I sat at the pool and drank my coffee and watched the ocean. That's it. Just watched the ocean. It wasn't going anywhere but I couldn't take my eyes off of it.

After that, a brief jaunt to check e-mail.

And then down to the beach to sit in my lounger under my umbrella all day. The first thing out of Cindy's (the beach chair lady)mouth was..."I bet Cindy (my aunt) is so mad at you!" And of course, I said "Yes, and I'm rubbing it in!" Then she instructed me to call to let her know how beautiful of a day it was on the beachfront. :)

At 2:30, the rains came. At 3:30, it was sunny again.

At 5:30 I came in and fell asleep on the couch watching Pretty Woman. At 7:30 I woke up, showered, and went down to Caribbean Jack's for dinner and Bananas Foster. I made friends with the valet guys, and they recommended the Ocean Deck. I've never been there, so that's on tonight's schedule.

So...that was my first day at the beach. Enjoy work this week Cindy and Caron and Dad! And Lindsey and Jordan. And Tonya and Whitney. I guess I've just covered my readership! :) haha. I will be thinking of all you while I'm snoozing this afternoon. Well, maybe not. I've just finished one book and starting a new one today. :)

You may be on the beach but I will be spending my days at the Willow Springs Water Park. Thats right. Beach...Waterpark...they are one in the same.

And, I can't take a vacation because I housesit for someone. You know, make sure their plants and cats don't die. ; )

Ha! I was definitely offended when I didn't see my name on the well wishes for a good work week. So I immediately logged in to comment and, lo and behold, there I am...right at the top of the comment list. :) I think this will be a good work week...our first week with our Health and Nutrition summer program. But, man! That beach sounds SOOOOO good!

Casey said...

haha. Lindsey. That's great. You have a great way of making me feel just great! :)

Dad...I love you. :)

Janet...I heard your first day went awesome. You know, I should send Lindsey down there (yes the Lindsey in this post)...she would probably love to be involved in one of your summer programs. I'll call sometime soon. Thanks for checking on me...I didn't drop off the face of the earth...just at the edge. :)

Lindsey said...

Oh, you know I don't mind "house sitting" at all. : ) And are you talking about me Lindsey? Are you sending me somewhere? lol
