Sunset & Gelato

The girls and I have had terrible summer colds. We woke up today, and felt better, finally. To celebrate, we decided to pile in to the car after dinner and drive the ten minutes it takes to get from our house to Clearwater Beach. Our goal was to eat gelato, and watch the sunset. I didn’t put the girls in their bathing suits, so I let them play in the tide pools with their clothes on, which they thought was pretty fun. It was so nice to get out of the house, and I am happy to be able to resume our summer activities. Here’s to a snot-free rest of the summer. Fingers crossed.

We took the girls down to the beach this evening so we could see a much talked about sand sculpture that was done to promote our city, and the new movie Dolphin Tale, which was filmed here in Clearwater, Florida. I’m not sure which was more amazing, the sculpture, or tonight’s sunset.
