Salt Life

Last Friday, the girls and I drove down to the cottage shortly before lunchtime.  I wanted to beat the late afternoon/evening traffic plus more rain was moving in.  We were successful in our mission.  I feel like I was on top of the news and weather when I was working - not so much now - so I didn't realize how much rain we were expecting.  Our cottage is located in a flood zone but thankfully, we didn't witness any flooding in our area.  The road looked like a pond but it was only a few inches deep.  Other parts of the Cape were not so lucky and saw severe flooding.

Cottage projects.  You finish one and promptly find ten more to add to your list.  This is the backyard.  One day, there will be grass.

I'm really happy with the pavers we chose for the patio and we're glad that project is out of the way.  It's been nice having useable outdoor space.

And this is our driveway.  Shells!

In case you're curious, shells cost the same as gravel.

After the rain cleared out, beach weather returned.

Originally, all three girls were in the water when I framed this out.  When they saw me leave (I had to go back to get my camera), they left the water to ask where I was.  Then when they saw me with the camera, there was fake posing.  I'll get them when they least expect it.

The salt life is a good life. :)

So many great pictures (as always!), but I LOVE that one with the two wet braids. SO SO good. Is that Allie?

I must know the specifics on those pavers. I LOVE them!

Elaine - I don't remember anything about the pavers. The landscaper sent us to a supply place in Dennis and had us pick out which ones we wanted. They were all laid out - so there was no information. The only thing we asked about was price. Sorry!
