Of course on the last day the sun was shining like crazy. We went out at 7am to catch a few rays before check out. I am just now starting to learn about childbirth so listening to the waves and trying to compare them to a contraction was important to me. Kind of weird, but the analogy helps me. I haven't mentioned my desire to have a med-free birth to many people because they start to act like you are dogging them for having an epidural or just crazy but I'm going to TRY med free. If anyone out there has been successful and has some tips please pass them along! And yes this book was sort of weird and scary.
Saturday morning we mostly stayed inside waiting for the rain to stop and I wrote thank you notes. We decided to catch the matinee of The Great Gatsby since the weather was pretty yuck. Oh people I've been waiting for this movie since 2010 and it was my #1 thing to do before I had the baby. I read the book every year and it was amazing how closely the movie followed the book. After the movie we ate lunch and I may have had the best sweet tea of my life. We hurried home to catch a little sun while it was out and the clouds came back. It was cold but we sat on the beach wrapped in towels dang it.
When you go on vacation alone there are a lot of self portraits.
On this trip I wanted so badly to eat at Another Broken Egg and Dusty's, get a tan, and swim in the ocean with my baby. Well only the first 2 were accomplished. I came back pale and the ocean was so extremely cold. But Dusty's fried shrimp was so delicious and I smiled the whole time eating my southwest scramble from ABE. Oh and they gave me a chocolate covered strawberry for Mother's Day!
I also wanted a pregnant silhouette picture. The second we stepped on the beach the sun went behind solid clouds. Oh well we are just blessed to be able to go to the beach!
