Ike's effects in Pensacola Beach

Ike was 450 miles south of the beach when we had waves breaching the dunes and flooding parts of the island. Soundside got the bigger hits with flooding in several businesses, apartments and parks. Beachside we had erosion and flooding, but we hope the ocean will leave us lots of beach when the waves finally subside (hopefully Monday)

Gamers on the beach

I swear, within 24 hours of hitting the beach our home is game central. We've told the boys we're limiting the festivities this year to accomodate my decline and to give Ginger more of a vacation. Here are some happy testosterone laden lads with their controls well in hand.

Seeing the ocean for the first time this season

After the 7 hour car trip with 2 teens and 2 dogs, we unload and ritually walk to the beach to view it for the first time each year. This is a sacred month for our family. There's even a special prayer to say when you see the ocean :)
