New Years Beach Trip
Last New Years we went on a last minute trip to the beach with friends and decided we wanted to make it an annual thing so we booked a house in Cape San Blas again for this New Years.
We left early on the morning of the 30th so we could get half the day at the beach. We went with the Mitchlers (their dog Sullivan included), the Reynolds, the Martins, James, Scott, Ben, and Evan (and his dog, Big). We got a house at the very end of the strip that shared a side with the state park. It was nice and secluded and we didn't feel like we were bothering anybody. They allow dogs on the beach and bonfires so it was a win win.
We spent our mornings relaxing and walking the dogs on the beach. The rest of the day pending weather consisted of beach sitting, bonfires, beach games, movies and such. Each night we took turns cooking dinner. On New Year's Eve we cooked an Italian dinner with the Reynolds.
The weather was beautiful and even hot on New Year's Eve Eve and New Year's Eve. The weather turned on the first and it rained and got cold. We were still able to get some beach time each day just not all day. Yesterday we went to the local joint called Indian Pass Raw Bar for crab legs and shrimp. It's a hole in the wall but so good!
We had a great time! Cooper is completely exhausted from the other dogs and playing on the beach. I'm sure we will be making this trip for years to come (if we feel we can once Emma arrives)
Looking forward to all 2016 has in store for us. We started off with a bang!
