WW: Making Summer Memories

Photobucket

Friday we had the opportunity to catch a foot ferry and hop over to Bull's Island. Except for the couple of people on the ride over, the beach was all ours. It was quiet, beautiful beyond words and the perfect start to our summer. And the rabid mosquitoes that ate through our clothes on the hike to the beach only made the day more memorable. :)

(The middle/right photo is Little Man having a crab battle. Gotta love 'em.)

You can find a couple other photos from our day on instagram @projectalicia.

I'm excited for the summer memories to come...

Speaking of summer, Rebecca of Bumbles and Light, Kristi of Live and Love out Loud and I have a fun SUMMER PHOTO NON-CHALLENGE LINKUP PARTY coming soon. Come back next week for the fun printable and join us.

Thanks so much for stopping by! This is Wordless Wednesday, but as you can see Wordful and Not So Wordless posts are always welcome here.

Now, without further ado... let's get this WW party started. Just grab a photo and link up below! And if you'd like to connect with other WW participants, click HERE.

  17. I swear I got a whiff of nostalgia warm sea weather. I just read the other day that Native Americans used bear grease to ward off mosquitoes, however detestable insect repellent might be I think we can be thankful for progress where those particular pests are concerned.
