Well, 10 hours and 12 stops later we made it! It should have taken about 7 hours to get here but with 2 kids that get car sick and a prego SIL we had to have a few extra stops. I have to say this is the most laid back non-commercialized beach I have ever been to. There are huge Cypress trees filled with Spanish Moss and Palm trees side by side. There are a few glorified mom and pop restaurants around the beach, a few gift shops, a seafood market, church, fire and police stations, a Piggly Wiggly and that is about it. The beach is FULL of shells, so much is some places you couldn't take your shoes off. Sunday was a little cooler and rainy so we drove inland a couple of miles and went to a seafood market and picked up some shrimp and went to a dirt floor veggi/fruit market and picked up some veggies and a freshly homemade key lime pie, mmmmmm. Yesterday we went to the beach and it almost felt like we had our own private island. The kids played (Mason slept, something about the sound of the waves knocks him out every time) and J and Daron fished. J caught a huge Horseshoe Crab and a Stingray. Daron finally caught 3 fish. We teased them and said maybe if we bought a loaf of bread and prayed real hard the Lord would multiply it. Maybe by the end of the week they will have caught enough to have a fish fry, (not real sure how I feel about that).
