Bliss at the shore....

We are home from our lovely beach trip. The planets were in alignment and the weather was just fabulous! Although there were forecasts of rain and thunderstorms, we had glorious days of sunshine and nights with twinkling stars. The food was wonderful --- we ate some of the best seafood ever!!! I am going to share a recipe for the lobster ravioli with you. Oh my, what a treat for the tastebuds.

I went to all my favorite shops, including Pickets. This sweet garden shop located in Seagrove is filled with the most unique things to delight lovers of rabbits and bunnies. The gardens surrounding the shop are filled with bunny fountains, sculptures and flowers growing in wild abandon.

Our "family photo" for this trip is a bit unusual.... I decided to take a picture of our feet in the swirling water and sugar sand. You can probably guess that I am the one with the toe ring and coral nail polish!!! Who says you can't throw caution to the wind at the beach??? The photo at the top is our beautiful Megan.
