Random beach trip ...

It's Wednesday!!!

Monday, when I posted my beach bag essentials I had no idea and zero plans to head to the beach. But when you live in the Caribbean you can decide on whim on a Tuesday afternoon to take the 45 minute drive to the beach (see why a beach chair in the trunk at all times is necessary?). Some friends and I rolled up to the North Coast yesterday afternoon to Las Cuevas beach.

We chilled and watched kids play on the beach:

I took my mandatory coconut tree pic:

And watched the sun set!

We of course stopped of for "bake and shark" - a local dish

(excuse the red glow - it was under a red tent and I tried my darnedest to fix it!)

I also took an (awkward) selfie because "selfie or it didn't happen":

Loved that random trip!!!

Anyway, the original post I had planned for today was to announce the book club book for July. And the book we will be reviewing on August 4th is:

Saint Anything
We link up on August 4th - mark the date! 
Hope you join us!!

Have a great Wednesday guys!!

  2. Random beach trips are the best!! I'm really grateful that the beach is only about 15/20 minutes from me. I still don't make it there as much I would like.

  19. I need to take a random beach trip. It's why I love living around an hour away from the beach (closer is ideal, of course, but I'll take what I can get).

    HAHA on the mandatory coconut tree pic!

  22. So cool that you get to just go do this! We're definitely trying to make sure we hit up the beach randomly after work sometimes this summer...it's too easy not to!

  23. I would LIVE at the beach if I lived in the Caribbean. Seriously, you'd have to drag me away. I requested the book from my library so I'm ready to join in!

  24. I just shared on my blog that I moved to a new city but the thing I didn't mention for people not from SA is that I now have the beach 10 mins away and I ADORE THAT ... #Winning

  25. Ugh. I am so jealous. I don't even remember the last time I've been to a beach. I think I was still living in New Jersey so at least 5 years ago. If I lived there, I'd probably go every week. I'm a huge water and sun baby. Love the beach and yet, I still haven't been to a Washington beach. This needs to change.
