Island Adventure

So today, we inadvertently took a little tour of the island. Sound like fun? Let me be a little more specific: we took a little tour of the ENTIRE island. Like, around the whole perimeter. We started out at home, which I guess is sorta down south, on the western shore. We went to Andersen to get a swing set (that they didn't have) which is way up north and I think over on the eastern side. So that takes care of the western and northern part of the perimeter. So, since they were having a festival and we wanted to avoid traffic, instead of going home along with western shore (which we drive up and down every single day and know quite well) we went back down the eastern shore. And since we didn't have our handy cartoon map, we missed a turn. So instead of cutting across to get to our little western home, we went ALL THE WAY DOWN to the southern tip of the island, then back up the other side.

Phew, I'm exhausted just retelling it! Thank the Lord Brandi had Ava, so it was just the boys, and they were so well behaved! My guys. Long story short (er) we got some great pictures of the island, which I guess is good enough for me. Gotta learn how to deal with the whole depth of field issue though- these would have been AWESOME if I could have focused like I wanted to!

So here we are, still on Andersen, heading down to Taragee beach. That's not how you spell it, but that's what it sounds like. Looks like I'm driving onto the set of Lost, right? Or even better- Jurassic Park! So you're driving on this little two lane road, down a hill like it's no big deal, and then the trees to the right drop off and BAM! you're hit with this view. Not a bad life, right?

This is down at the actual beach. Mom, I didn't see any sign of any sort of monster. Sorry.

This was later on in our travels. Wish I could be a little more specific Dad, but seriously, no idea where we were. Sure was amazing though, right?

My favorite part of the day...a random castle bridge. Not leading to anything, not any sort of park or playground- just your everyday castle bridge.

My beloved mountains. I think I'm gonna throw a football over them mountains :)

  1. We've had the same problem, in reverse- driving down to Navy and them not having what we want. Luckily, we usually get over being frustrated by going to Gab Gab or having lunch at the restaurant at the marina. If you ever need soemthing from Andersen and don't wanna drive all the way up here for no reason, let me know what you're looking for and I can scope it out for you.
