Vacation: Back from the beach!








We had a kind of impromptu vacation. My son and his wife, spending a week at the beach, asked the hubby and I to come down and spend a few days with them. They rented the top apartment of a beach house and had plenty of room...so... off we went! We had lots of fun, ate way too much food that's on my no-no list (but it was a vacation!) and thoroughly enjoyed spending time with our son and daughter in law. Nice to spend time with your kids when they're grown... it's a different kind of relationship at that stage of life.

I'm posting a few pics. The surfer in the pics is my son, Philip. The last pic is Philip and Rhonda, our DIL, although we claim her as a daughter :-)

What beautiful people!!! I think that place looks gorgeous- may I ask where it is Teresa? The photos are gorgous too especially the one with the grasses at dusk.

Looks like an idyllic place to vacation!

Hi Simone,

It's Carolina Beach, NC... good place to gather photo references for possible paintings!

Ann said...

I was going to ask the same question, wondering what beach you went to. Carolina Beach does look beautiful. I bet you did get lots of good reference shots!

Looks like fun! Hope you got some good ideas for future paintings!

Pat said...

I can see some paintings on the horizon :)

Rosie said...

Teresa, this sounds like such fun. The place is beautiful! Your son and your "daughter" are beautiful, too! That beach is especially appealing to me today. It's over 100 degrees.

How wonderful to have such a fabulous few days! We are in the midst of a heat wave here in Ottawa Canada so that water looks most inviting. Heck, the idea of lots of no-no food sounds great too! :-) Glad you had such a special time.

What fun photos! I'm glad that you had a nice visit to the beach and with family. It is so fun to see the photos of your family too!

P.S. The walk to the beach looks a bit like my page that I did in Laure Ferlita's Beach class.

Beautiful photos, Teresa. People hate to hear this, but, I have to say, it looks just like Jersey! :-)
I agree, it is nice spenf=ding time with grown kids; in fact, my favorite age for kids is 21+.
Along with the eating, did you paint?

It is truly wonderful to read this post Teresa, beautiful people and a beautiful family, true, with grown up kids, the relationship will be at a different level, mature and nice:-)
Nice to see that they invited you guys to share their pleasant moments.

Teresa, beautiful place for a beautiful family. We are all looking forward to the paintings!

Wow, this looks devine! I can feel the salt spray as I look at the photos. I bet you got some good painting inspiration as well as some much needed downtime!
Looks like everyone had a great time!
