Beach Trip

This past weekend, my husband and I took a little trip together. We drove down to Orange Beach, Alabama and stayed in a condo which is owned by my sister’s fiancĂ©. It is a very nice condo with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. My sister has helped him decorate it really cute. Just behind it, there is a lagoon, or some kind of small body of water, and we were told that an alligator lives out there. The whole weekend we tried to see it, but he never came out while we were there. We didn’t do much during our weekend there, but we sure enjoyed just being lazy and lying out in the sun on the beach. The weather was so great, with high temperatures in the 70’s. It was my first time to go to the beach in the fall, and after always going in the hot, hot summertime, I think now in my older age, I might prefer the beach at this time of year. And you can’t go to the beach without eating some seafood, so we went out twice to seafood restaurants. I was still able to get my walking in by taking nice, long walks down the beach. I sure needed it after eating all that seafood!
I think our warm weather has finally ended for this year. It is actually cool enough out now to wear a light jacket. I love it! We haven’t had to turn on the heat in the house yet, but I’m sure that isn’t too far off. It started raining late yesterday afternoon and has continued through today. This morning was one of those days you just wish you didn’t have to go to work and could stay inside and enjoy a good book or something.
I’d like to do a little update on A Plea for Purging. For anyone new to this blog, that is the name of the Christian heavy metal band my son is in. The guys have been taking some time off the road, only doing weekend shows or a small tour once in a while. They’ve been working hard to write all the new music for their next CD with Facedown Records. Aaron said they have enough songs written now and they are practicing and getting ready to record at the end of next month. I guess they’ll start touring again after the Christmas holidays. I sure hope Aaron gets to come home for Christmas. I haven’t seen him in almost three months!

How nice! We don't have many beaches around here. And it has been regular coat weather here already. Although, it's not bad today - 53.

I'm so jealous. My hubby and I could defiantly use a weekend like that. Glad you had a good time and I hope your son gets to come home too.
