A Tropical Storm

Well y'all.  My weekend of BIG PLANS got cancelled.  I live in Florida.  Florida has tropical storms.  And hurricanes.  It just so happens that of ALL the weekends in the year, Tropical Storm Beryl chose my BIG ONE to come ashore at the very beach I was planning to sit on.


This storm was ugly y'all.  She (or he?) had lifeguards saving over 150 people in the ocean due to rip currents.  I'm SO thankful we decided to cancel our trip because we would have been miserable sitting in the room watching it rain and the wind blow 66 miles an hour.  And the ocean?  Forget-about-it.

On Sunday when it was clear that the beach was absolutely out of the picture, we decided to head to another city about 3 hours from home and watch a good friend of ours play in a big baseball game.  It was great to watch the top 80 players in the state of Florida play baseball!  They pitched and fielded some kind of amazing!

Monday I was able to meet my brother and my nieces for some bowling and games!  The kids had a blast and were so excited to see and spend time with one another!

I'll be sure to post more pictures this week from the baseball game and our afternoon at the bowling alley!



  1. Sorry it rained on your beach plans...we however (in GA) are thankful for the rain the storm has given us thus far...we just put in a new lawn out back!

  2. Thankful for the rain, although it did put a damper on a lot of plans! I couldn't figure out if Beryl was a boy or girl either...glad to know it wasn't just me!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one and treasure every word!
