We. Made. It.
Herbie @ the beach! 4 weeks prior to this, I wasn’t sure it would happen. Fears of playing Aunt Edna kept entering my mind.
Our first stop was for some big chair time.
Get this man some food!
After a few days at the beach, the Indiana girls needed a shopping fix. And I needed to see if CS fit into this contraption.
And we thought this was funny.
CS was craving a po’boy the whole trip! With the help of some locals, we did find a few new eateries to try.
Dad witnessed a Blue Angels fly-by over the beach, hopped on the internet, and we made plans to watch a public practice over in Peniscola. Bucket List! Mom, pack the Triscuits.
My 2 favorite men in the whole wide world.
They had an old Fat Albert plane you could tour. Might as well!
I love this photo of my Dad. He’s walking by, “Herb, stop right there. I need a pic.” Payback for all the pics as a kid I had to pose for. Parenting your parents is fun!
The cloud cover kept the practice to just a few stunts, but still impressive.
Video will be coming soon.
Then ole’ Fat Albert took the stage.
After the show, we visited the massive National Naval Aviation Museum.
I was very impressed with the history of planes and equipment this place had. Imagine this R2D2 cage was your job for months or years.
Front row seat!
You can’t see shit out of this thing. Radio contact must have been crucial.
We tried to figure out if we could put his on the pontoon and race some boats at the lake.
Finally time for my repeat bucket item… Lemur play time. I was armed with more interactive video this time.
COME PLAY WITH ME!
Carole was all about it.
Chad found a new lover. In, this guy loved to lick is sun burnt forehead clean.
I was in heaven. When I go back, I will likely do this every day we are there. Every day.
Next animal encounter? Sloth! I sent this image to a friend. His response, “Nice stuffed animal statue.”
Nope, he moves!
There were 2 slothes in the cage. Let’s feed one.
The sloth-y, as we will call him, would creepily move around the ropes.
And I figured he was doing yoga moves.
Photo ops with a sloth. And again, video will be coming soon.
Another encounter was Kangaroos, but they put them in this pouch and you hold the pouch. Pass.
CS had fun getting this guy agitated.
Amidst all our fun, I found a little time for self improvement. Excellent Read. Highly recommend it.
To my new favorite US beach spot… until next time.
