Where I had my morning coffee…


Where I had my morning devotions…


The view from the restaurant where I had lunch…


The beach where I spent the afternoon…


where I watched dive bombing pelicans…



and even some dolphins!


Vacation is definitely a simple pleasure!

(The Hubs and I are enjoying spending a few days at my brother’s on the southern California coast

before heading inland to Palm Springs.)

Still following,

  1. Looks like you're having a simply wonderful time! Enjoy!

  2. A woman after my own heart! WATER!!
    A vacation with out some kind of water, isn't a vacation.

  3. Wonderful relaxing photos. Enjoy your vacation !

  4. Here's hoping you have an absolutely fabulous time. Preachers and their families deserve a vacation more than anybody else in the world--that's just my humble opinion--

    My best friend's father was my pastor and because of spending so much time at their home during my growing up years I saw first hand the demands on a preacher's family.

    Relax and enjoy which it looks like you are certainly doing. Will you say a tiny prayer for me while you are walking on the beach--my favorite place in all of the world.

    I love you dear friend.

    Oh, clicked on your "permission" thingie at the bottom of the page and noticed that your middle name is the same as my mom's and of course you know my name is Elizabeth Dianne--wow! more connections--love it!!

  5. No doubt you are having a wonderful time. The weather looks great! Enjoy! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

  21. Morning Elizabeth,
    There is just no place quite like the beach for relaxing and taking in the sights, sounds and wonder of our creator. It just inspires and thrills the much of God's handiwork everywhere, I just love to watch the birds and look at the patterns the ocean leaves on the sand, so amazing.
    Glad you are having a lovely relaxing vacation.
    Thanks for sharing the beauty of it with us.
    Blessings, Nellie
