My Favorite Part of Vacation

Okay, not really. The family photo night is a necessary evil, as far as I'm concerned, and it keeps the wife happy.  We have five family units staying at the same condo complex. Row & Red Ant's great grandmother had a total of seven children, and the family has stayed closer than most through the years. The annual beach trip to Orange Beach, AL has been a tradition for quite some time.

In addition to my broken toe (?), I've also developed a case of acute sinusitis. For the non-medical, it's a sinus infection that feels like a hangover every morning, but without the alcohol. I brought a twelve pack of beer, and it looks like I'll be bringing all of it back too. Allegra, and aspirin have been my friend, as well as an afternoon nap.

We started taking photos almost at sunset, the lighting was perfect!

It's K!

My favorite time of sunset, after the sun slips below the horizon.

A favorite moment during the photo shoot.

Wish you were here.

  1. The beach is a tranquil place. The sunrises and sunsets are well worth the trip in and of themselves.

    1. The stress of life can be washed away with the music of the waves.
