Coastal Evenings

One of the biggest treats of coastal living is living the coastal life without a plethora of company.  There's no doubt that during the day, the beaches get packed, traffic can be bumper to bumper and restaurant lines are longer than checkout lines at grocery stores the day before Thanksgiving. 

During the day, we usually stay away.  The pace of our homestead is where we want to be during those busy tourist times.

But at night.  That's different.

 You see, everyone leaves. 

And finding the perfect picnic spot is easy.

And it can be just us.

 Sweet girl.

Handsome boy.

And a picnic for us.  (With home grown and homemade favorites, for sure).
 It's a sweet time, I tell you.
Because when we're done eating, there's much to explore.

 I single parent most nights a week due to my husband's work schedule.  It would be a lot less work to stay home for dinner.  But, beach nights are magical.

The best time to go to the beach?   7:07 pm.
Thankful to live here.  Thankful, indeed.


  1. Oh sweet it is I would be down there enjoying that whenever I could too. Love your photos. B

  2. Oh how I'd love to take the kids for picnic dinners on the beach. Your pictures are superb!

  3. You have precious children and such a gorgeous place to photograph them. They will always treasure these pictures and the memories.

  4. What a beautiful place to live. I absolutely love these photos... your children are adorable. Looks like they had an awesome time too!

    Wishing you a wonderful day.

  5. It would be great to have a beach in the back yard. We have a 15 or 30 minute drive depending on which one we want go to. It looks like you are having a wonderful picnic with no one else around.

  6. I love all these photos! So awesome that you are close to the beach. I am at least a 10 hour drive away. Boo!

  7. How wonderful to be able to walk to the beach. :) The kids look like they adore beach nights too!
