If you missed part one of our beach trip, be sure to read it first then come back for today’s post.
I left off after our first night at the beach. We woke up Sunday morning excited for an entire day of fun in the sun and the sand. We ate breakfast out on the patio, and then lathered up the sunscreen, gathered up all our stuff, and headed down to the beach. We got there early so we got a good spot in the sand with our trusty tent.
The water was so clear and beautiful, no seaweed or jellyfish in site! I have gone on beach trips before where I refuse to get in the water because of this. Also, can’t beat the sugar white sands of Florida. Aaaahhh.
I’m saying “I’m smiling but this water is freezing!”
We did the obligatory beach things like go for a walk, read, play in the water, etc. Bobby even took a nap in the shade of our tent.
After awhile, I looked around and realized the people were closing in. we started the day with no one around, but by lunchtime the beach was getting quite crowded.
Luckily, I brought turkey sandwiches, plenty of drinks and snacks with me in our cooler, so we were well fed and didn’t have to leave the beach. A bit after lunch, we saw some guys playing volleyball at one of the nets so we decided to go scope it out. The group of guys turned out to be super nice and were in town for a bachelor weekend. We picked up on the next game and ended up having a blast and then soon some others joined in with us and we ended up playing for FOUR HOURS! We played until I literally was so tired I couldn’t even get my serve over the net and we all called it a day. We were exhausted. It was one of those exhaustions where you just want a shower and a comfy bed and some ibuprofen because you just KNOW every muscle in your body is going to be sore the next day. it. was. glorious.
Instead of going out to dinner we decided to make this our cook in the condo night, we were way to tired to care. Poor Bobby was really sunburned, but I faired well and was just slightly pink in a couple spots. We cooked tacos and sat in front of the TV watching endless episodes of Law and Order: SVU for the rest of the night. Aren’t we an exciting young couple? Oh ya! But me, I loved it. It was the perfect end to the perfect day.
QOTD: Do you always eat out on vacation or do you try to do some of your own cooking as well?
That beach looks heavenly!
We fix meals depending on where we go and how long we’ll be there.
Looks like a great day! I wish we had the white super soft sand around here! I admit I don’t like to cook much on vacation. I’d rather go out.
we do easy to cook meals with few ingredients. hamburgers, tacos, etc. Sometimes we just order a pizza, too!

LOOKS AWESOME!! Enjoy and relax! It sounds like the perfect way to spend a vaca!
Heather (Where's the Beach) says
The water looks incredible. That’s how it was for us in May. I think it was the prettiest I have ever seen it actually. We almost always eat in – especially at the beach. We get a condo, hit the grocery store, and cook in for all meals. Saves so much money and you don’t have to get dressed up 😉
Meredith @ DareYouTo says
Sounds like a lovely time! On vaca, I tend to eat out because it’s the only option, but prefer to do a bit of cooking and prep if we have a kitchen.
Tara Burner says
I seriously wish my beaches here in SE FL looked that good! I always have to go north or to the gulf side to enjoy white sand, clean water! lol
and my daughter & I usually eat one meal out on vacay and make the rest in our room 🙂
Sounds like the perfect beach day!
If I’m on vacation, there may not be a place to cook, but I do try to stay healthy some nights. Other nights I have the mindset of “I’m on vacation and I’ll eat what I want.”
haha I hear ya!
Kristyn @ Life In Running Shoes says
our beach trips always include a condo so we cook as much as possible, but always save one night to eat out.
Paige @ Your Trainer Paige says
Love the beach tent 🙂
Ahhh man I need me a beach vaca soon.
Angie @ Losing It and Loving It says
Love the pictures! That water is amazing. And that tent is awesome.
We usually stay at a resort/hotel when we travel so there is no option to really cook.
Wow!! That water is beautiful! Much prettier than the beaches I’ve been too. My family eats out almost every night. We just munch around all day, then eat out for dinner. We always stay in one night and order pizza.
Lora @ Crazy Running Girl says
Wow that beach looks amazing!!
Abby @ BackAtSquareZero says
I actually prefer staying in, cooking, and watching TV or a movie to going out, so much more relaxing. Glad you had a great day.
Oh girl, you are making me want to go back to the beach!!
The UDG says
I’d love the beach a whole lot more if there wasn’t so much sand. And sharks.
I love eating out on vacation but only at local restaurants. I don’t want to eat somewhere I can eat at home.
Ellie@Fit for the soul says
Wowww look at that sand and water!!! It’s so gorgeous there. And those are the BEST exhaustions…when you play so hard that you feel like a kid again from running around everywhere. 😛
yes! It was a wonderful day!
