Beach Day

A few weeks back we got a call from our friends Matt and Elise letting us know that they would be coming close to town for a beach weekend w/ some friends from New Orleans. So that day I marked the date on my calendar and have been counting down the days until June 6th … which was a FABULOUS day. We met Matt, Elise and a group of friends Friday night for dinner in Perdido. Then on Saturday morning we headed over to Perdido to spend the day at Johnson Beach.
We had a wonderful time! The beach was absolutely perfect, and we got to meet some really cool people and make some new friends :)   After hanging at the beach for the day we went to Matt’s mom’s place to get ready for dinner. While we got cleaned up the guys went to the docks and bought some fresh fish, so for dinner we had some grilled & sauteed grouper with some snapper, broccoli, and garlic mashed potatoes. It was a delicious meal, and my first real salt-water fish experience.  Simply stated, we had an amazing weekend and it was so great to see Matt & Elise. Now here are some visual images of “Beach Day” …

Yep, you see that correctly…Stephen and Dan (one of the guys from N.O) built a couch and tv in the sand, it was sturdy and had a great ocean view!
Oh, and I forgot to mention, after dinner we all went up to Hershey’s Ice Cream Parlor and got some dessert. Nothing better than some ice cream after a day on the beach and a good fish dinner. Strawberry Cheesecake Ice cream in a waffle bowl may be my new favorite, right next to birthday cake ice cream :)  yumm, just thinking about it makes me want some!  Alright folks, there ya have it – now go eat some ice cream and make your night that much tastier ;)

  3. I am totally laughing OUT LOUD as I read Matt’s response. Hey Matt, bring Helena and Noel home for a visit by plane if you’re making that much on NOEL. Cassie, awesome pictures and what a joy to know you have such awesome friends and new ones too, that will come back for another visit, NO DOUBT, with the rockin good time you guys had.
    Loved the TV and Love seat. You’ll have to go back out and top it by building a big screen and you and Steven sit in the Loveseat. You could send the pictures in for a contest on BEACH ART.
