A time to renew

Recently, Allen and I went on vacation. It is a special place where people do not lock their front doors and everyone waves hello. Many people drive along the white shell roads with golf carts. I read several books, ate homemade ice cream (and yogurt), wore my straw hat and relaxed.

A ride along the coastline

Early morning at the beach

This was my means of transportation - love that basket and bell.

The large bolders and white sandy beaches are a joy to visit in the morning, afternoon and evening.

Yummy black raspberry yogurt and sitting at a picnic table looking at cute sheep, while the sun begins to set.

Bicycling around the neighborhood. Lovely sites were all around me.

The backyard view in early morning, taken by Allen.

As always vacations have to end, however, the memories linger on. :)
