Vacation. Everyone should take one.

If everyone was able to spend a week at the beach, the world would be a better place. Although beaches would be very crowded, which would get annoying quickly. There would have to be an excellent scheduling system for this.

One day I will write a screenplay based on my family’s annual beach vacation. 🙂 Until then, enjoy these photos. (And if you didn’t check out my beach-related posts from last week, please scroll down and enjoy those, too.)

Can’t beat this view.

What a great week. 🙂 I miss everyone — and the beach — already. Until next year, y’all!
