So Shabby Pink - Christmas at the Beach - Part 2

I think it was the last day that we were in Va. Beach that my Father noticed a woman in a white strapless dress, a Marine dressed in his dress blues and two other people walking down to the edge of the water. We were staying on the 4th floor so we had an excellent view.

Now, four of us were in the middle of a hot Scrabble tournament (we are a wild group) so I only got up briefly to see what was going on. I am so sorry I missed it. I am SO sorry I didn't take any pictures!!

My Father stood at the door and gave us a blow by blow of this event occurring on the beach. I bet you guessed that this cute couple was getting married!! It was probably 45 degrees outside and the bride was BAREFOOT. She was the one that had on that white strapless dress. By the time I got up and looked out the door, they had gotten back in their car and were driving away. I opened my arms and laid my body against the window hoping they would see me as I banged on the glass. I wanted to congratulate them! They just drove away and never knew we were watching.

Later, we put on our coats, scarves and gloves for a brisk walk on the beach. I just love that. Well, looky here! Barefoot prints in the sand! Now, maybe the groom was barefoot too but if he wasn't, the bride had REALLY BIG FEET!

We followed the barefoot prints and they led us to the very spot they said their I do's.

Off to the side was this heart in the sand with the word "Love" inside. Oh, that's so sweet!

I really regret not getting pictures! Maybe one of these days one of them will read my blog! Oh, and if they do, sorry about the bride's big feet comment.

I am wishing everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
