Beach With a Chance of Rain

We enjoyed another long weekend at the beach. The forecast called for rain and storms everyday.
When we arrived on our campsite it was cloudy skies and misty rain.

I started as usual of hanging the close line, putting out the mats and chairs while Nick levels out the camper. Then I get the thumbs up to let out the slide.

Oops, the slide did not come out. We just looked at each other and rolled our eyes. If you have a camper, you know there is always a chance of something going wrong. Nick pulls out the tool bag and crawls underneath to investigate.

He took the slide motor off for a closer look. It seemed to be ok, so he put the motor back in place and the slide finally came out. We think the motor could be weak or just some debris was keeping it from turning. We have a new motor on hand just in case. I love that he thinks ahead like that and is always ready for the unexpected.

We did have rain every day but only in the afternoons. Each morning we woke up to sunshine and blue skies. Nick would go ahead of me on his walks then I would meet up with him after I tidyed up.

Then.....I always make a run for the ocean.

I found some really cool shells. I put them back after I snapped a photo. A couple of them still had hermit crabs inside so I let them live.

I'm really excited to have found a piece of drift wood along the coast. Driftwood is a rare find on these beaches. 

This is pretty much the view each afternoon. It was almost perfect. We did not let the clouds dampen our beach vibes. I love the cool storm breezes. We would sit and watch the black skies move in as long as we could.

  1. We just got back from the beach. Our last beach day was a rainy drizzle, but we didn't let it stop us! We decided we'd stay as long as there was no thunder or lightning. We can never do the beach in a weekend. Sadly, it's a ten hour drive for us. I'm far too landlocked!!!!

  2. Oh- I love the beach- rain or shine!
    I am heading to FL with two of my grandgirls on Friday and will be gone for 10 days. I can't wait!!! Beach--here we come! xo Diana

  3. Glad to hear you enjoyed your weekend at the beach and that the slide finally did work.
    I'm not really a beach person but I do enjoy walking along the water!!
    You're right, I did send cookies along with Ken. :)

  4. Life's a beach. Awwww. Time to pack a bag.

  5. Love that piece of driftwood! We are in search of a small camper so that we can start traveling to more places without having to worry about hotel rooms! Hugs!

  6. It's great that you and your husband get away so often to the beach. I love collecting seashells on the beach and the drift wood is so nice! I hope to get to the beach soon but we've had so much rain lately. Hope you have a nice weekend.

  7. Yep you are a beach person if you enjoy it rain or shine. Yes, with any camper, something can go wrong. It is great to be a handy man when you use an RV.
    I don't know how I missed this one.
    Love from over here Sherry & jack

  8. A rainy day at the beach still beats most other places! Pretty shots.

  9. All your beach trips look like you're having so much fun!
