Winter, Beach Style

 We were in the mood for one of our mini adventures.....because of the 'ol back situation we had been stuck home for a while. Greg's new treatment brought.....freedom. I love that our new state allows for visits to the ocean or the big city.

We heard there may be seals hanging out at this particular beach. We didn't find seals, but we found.......beauty and fun
We found history........and excitement in the form of this historic lighthouse and old army base.
We walked 95 winding steps to the top. Once there, we could see NYC.........massive ships......the ocean.....and more eye candy.

These little old army houses were awesome. I would love....love to renovate and live on this little peninsula. It hit us then......that would be something we may try to do in the future {not this particular historic site, of course....but somewhere}.

It was a wonderful Saturday....from beginning to end. I needed a day like that.
{now, the next day wasn't so fabulous....but this is real life, right?}
As I remind the boys.....each day is a new opportunity....a new beginning....His mercies are new each morning. Thank God for that.

Great pictures! I esp. love the lighthouse and am glad Greg's back allowed him to climb all those steps.

I just love going to the beach in "non bathing suit" season....of course for us that means weather in the 50s, for you guys more like teens! :)

Looks like a fabulous day indeed!!!
