All lined up, all lined up 2, and along the way + a bonus pic

- They look a bit like penguins lined up, don't they?  But it was some bundled up people, enjoying Grayton Beach, Florida on a cool, breezy Saturday.  Not so cool that they needed that much bundling up, but it's all good, I say.

- All lined up for the run / walk to benefit the Seaside, Florida school on a blue sky day that should have been bottled, it was so beautiful.

- Along the way on the race route.  It was only three miles and it amused us that there were so many people toward the end saying "You can do it!"  I guess.  :)  But it was lovely to be with my weekend walking buddies and their husbands for a fun weekend in which the run / walk for to benefit the school was an excuse to be down there.

- That's friend Laura knitting socks for her daughter's birthday (today) and friend Janice's knees just beyond.   I slathered myself in sunscreen and camped out on the beach on Sunday afternoon, too.  It was a lovely trip.  I loved it.

How wonderful. A great cause, and a great weekend - they belong together.

Lee said...

It looks like you had yourself a lovely time, Lynn...and all for a good cause. :)

Leonora said...

I think that Florida sun and sand is a sure cure for these old winter blues. I'm imagining the warm sun now...: )

Granny Annie said...

And what weather awaited you on your return to Georgia? I'm betting you had a difficult time leaving Florida.

Jannie Funster said...

How awesome you have such a cool (warm) vacation! Looks like a dreamy beach and great umbrella.


Snaggle Tooth said...

Looks so much warmer than here! What a great excuse for a field trip! N got in visits too, n the beach sunshine- Wow. Can't get a tan here now at all! Keep up the good walking work!

Naomi -

I normally don't like to sit in the sun for extended time like that, but my girlfriends talked me into it. I was lured by the umbrellas. :) And it was delightful.

Elephant's Child -

True and worth the money it cost.

Lee -

I did!

Leonora -

I agree - tired of winter now.

Lynn said...

Granny Annie -

It was 34 degrees when we got back Monday night. I was wearing capri pants and flip flops - had to run in the house. :)

Jannie -

So dreamy!


Snaggle -

I do enjoy walking - can't wait to get back to the outdoor walks here.

So, you were in my patch of land or kind of close by. Yes, it's been rather chilly for beach time, but it looks like this wasn't an issue given your photos.

Sounds like the run was fun. Hey, I made a rhyme.

And yes, I did wonder about those strange birds sitting on the beach. They looked a big large for seagulls:~) On the other hand, that's how I would have looked if I'd been there!

Have a nice day, Lynn.

Ileana said...

Happy to hear you enjoyed your trip. What a beautiful beach and that sky does look bright and beautiful. One of the many reasons I love Florida is for its skies.

Riot Kitty said...

Joanne said...

I'm so glad you had fun on your vacation! And the race sounds like a great excuse to get out and exercise!
