A Day at the Beach!

Since I’ve decided to make my blog a “life blog” rather than just a food blog, I have really been enjoying sharing my summer adventures with you!!  I hope you are enjoying it too!! 

This past weekend some friends invited us to hop in their boat and head over to one of the lovely islands we have around us. 

Normally it would take 2 ferries to get here,  but when you hop into a bright yellow speed boat, it only takes 20 – 30 minutes to get to beach paradise! IMG_0197

We took the speed boat, and the other part of the crew took this sail boat! Beautiful hey?IMG_0203

Paradise – I tell ya!  IMG_0205 IMG_0206

Now – this may look like a warm tropical beach – but the water was COLD!!   Not freezing, but not Mexico warm, that’s for sure!

But we made the best of it!  Rough life I know!! IMG_0224

On top of the chilly water -  it was FILLED with jelly fish!!  Thankfully not the stinging type!!   Look at my shadow, you can see them!   IMG_0220 My friend was brave enough to pick one up…  It was terrible enough swimming through them and having them touch me, I couldn’t imagine picking one up! EEK! IMG_0216 Moving on…

Lots of time was spent hanging out at the boat!  IMG_0210

IMG_0230 After a few hours in the sunshine,  we packed up and jumped back in the boat.   A few were almost left behind!

Enjoying the ride!   IMG_0245 Then we decided to stop at the island’s only restaurant for dinner!

IMG_0252 Lovely… they had an all you could eat Deck BBQ IMG_0253 But I just had the tuna burger with salad… it was AMAZING!  As was everyone else’s meals!  IMG_0254 Then time to hop back into the boat, for the sunset ride home!!

IMG_0257  IMG_0260IMG_0263   IMG_0274 Seriously?  How amazing is this?

IMG_0283 I could never live away from the ocean again, it’s too amazing!

IMG_0285 Just about to get off the boat - we are a little sun kissed… but had the most amazing day!!  Not sure if we’ll be able to top it this summer!  Thanks to our lovely hosts!! :)
