a quick get away

Last weekend we snuck out with family for a weekend camping trip to the beach. Just in time time too, the weather was gorgeous. We had such a good time with everyone, even our Bug made it down.
sunrise at the bay
I was up early and caught the sunrise, something i rarely witness. I love the light and reflection on the water in this shot. It was so peaceful and quiet with only the lapping sound of the water and an occasional duck honking.
aqua bikes!
We didn't do this but...
we did do this
paddle boarding
and this. Here's bug taking his cousin for a cruise. My sister and i tried paddle boarding and it was a blast. A whole body work out for sure but really fun too.
We enjoyed good company and this beautiful sunset
and finished our day with a campfire, smores and a sing along. My family and i have a thing for Jim Croce, every time we get together we dance, sign and turn up his songs loud. As long as i can remember we've done this and now our kids are taking part, so fun.

We're home now and are experiencing fall like weather. Cool days with a passing shower or two for the rest of the week and I am loving it! I made Pasta Fagioli with Ciabatta last night and have a 10 bean veggie soup on the stove for tonight. My knitting needles are calling and i might even break out a sweater later tonight. Oh how i love this time of year!

Happy Tuesday, i hope you're having some fall weather in your neck of the woods too.
