Saturday was our last full day of vacation, and we took full advantage of it.
My morning started with a 3.7 mile run around Long Sands, up to Short Sands, and back down to Long Sands. It was a tough, tough, tough run, but I was happy to have several reasons to take breaks.
These views are from the part of Long Sands that no one ever goes to. When it’s high tide, there is absolutely no place to sit and lay.
I also ran into my Uncle Bri, who was sitting on the rocks with his puppy Bailey while my Aunt Mare was grabbing an ice coffee. We talked for a bit, before him and Aunt Mare headed back to their house on Short Sands, and I continued on my run.
2 hours later, they came back down to the beach with my cousin Nikki, and her cousin Symme, and we all spent the day on the beach together.
(That’s the view from our front porch)
It was my Uncle’s birthday… Happy (blog belated) birthday!
Around 4, Uncle Bri, Aunt Mare, Nikki and Symme headed out, and the rest of us went back to our house and relaxed for a bit before grabbing burgers at Wild Willy’s.
Our front porch overlooks the ocean, and we preferred to eat with the views of the water, so my Dad and I headed 5 minutes into town to grab the burgers.
Remember those cramps that sidelined me the day before at the beach? They were back again, so I stayed in the car while Daddio went in.
Everyone ordered burgers, but I wasn’t feeling too well, so I had ordered a grilled chicken salad, the only issue being they were out of salad (what the?!), so I got a grilled chicken sandwich.
After dinner, we hung out outside, went for a walk, and then started playing several card games, and got really into the game “golf.”
I’m really not okay with the name of the wine that was bought. It should be called Jimmie, not Sprinkle. Jimmies > Sprinkles.
This picture really cracks me up. The story behind my brother’s face? He was actually unimpressed with how badly my Dad was struggling with cutting the cheese.
Overall, it was an amazing vacation, and I miss it already. I’m hoping I can get back to York Beach one last time this summer, especially since it’s only an hour away.
Such a fun time with my family!
Do you ever take family vacations, or generally just significant other vacations?
