A ROSE IS A ROSE!

There was a sweet story told today about a rose planted on the beach last year while visiting the wonderful seashore. Today upon return to the same beach, the man picked the rose left to grow for his sweetheart and presented it to her on her first day back at the beach. Nice story, but I think it was a load of BALONEY!

While meandering down the seashore, we spotted the above sign. In case you cannot read it, "Beware of Alligators" " Do not feed Alligators-$500 Fine"

NO DUH! Ok-if you survive throwing food to the hungry alligators-then they will charge you $500 in addition to your hospital bill. NOT VERY HOSPITABLE!



While roaming our way through Pensacola, we spotted these two lost looking Yankees exiting the airport. Ever the generous and kind Southerners we graciously offered them a ride. UNFORTUNATELY, we can not seem to lose them!



Here they are, the freeloaders now sitting in our beach chairs, in front of our beach house, sipping our drinks & soaking in our sun. We don't quite know what to do about them!




We decided to challenge them to a game of Bocce. The cheaters warmed up their skills before taking us on.






Let the games begin! They squeaked out a win after falling behind in the initial game. OUT PLAYED BY 2 OLD WOMEN!





Once again, our "Knights in Shining Armor" came to our rescue. The young upstarts were given a lesson, but alas they still are hanging around!







Behind our backs, you will notice the sun is setting and there seems to be a general drop in the energy level. Perhaps a fast paced and competitive game of Bocce was too much after all!


The day has faded and so has the rose. MANY MORE DAYS TO COME OF FUN AT THE BEACH!

Yeah....I am not buying that rose story either...but it sounds sweet. Appearance vs. reality again. Those two are really cute for Yankees! Are you sure they are Yankees?

I am so jealous! Nothing better than THE BEACH! I can almost smell it. AHHHHHHH!

Hey those 2 look like keepers! When I grow up, I want to drive the ice-cream truck at the beach.
