21st Birthday!

*warning! picture heavy post below!*
Some of you may know, yesterday was my 21st birthday. My sister and I went to the beach to celebrate! I am not going to bore you with words when I can just show pictures!
It rained a LOT on our way!

We stopped in Mobile for some shopping and...snacks.
When you know you are getting close! :)

Hotel room! Not too shabby.
Headed out for some grub.
The best burger place in Mobile Alabama.
You know you want some...
Dessert! Oh man, these were soooooo good. Fresh off the line at Krispy Kreme.
Failed attempt at night skyline photo. Looked cool though.
Next day, we made it to the beach! :)
Yay!
I love all the different colored houses.
Artistic much? haha
Hotels on the shore.
I felt like I was on Prince Edward's Island. It was stunning!



My sister, Jennifer!
Isn't it beautiful?!


Kindle shot!

I look tired and horrid, but that food....it was amazing!!



Cheesecake!
Did I mention I gained a pound over the weekend? haha. No...seriously.
That evening, we crossed the Alabama - Florida line and  visited Pensacola. We absolutely loved it!




Literally miles and miles of beach, no condos, no hotels, no power lines. Just nature. It was  breath taking.



What sea breeze does to my hair. Attractive, right?







The ferris wheel looked pretty awesome at night!
It was certainly hard to say good-bye. I prefer to say, until we meet again!

8 lovely notes:

Happy belated birthday! The beach looks beautiful... I love the long grass and overall look of east coast beaches - so different from what I'm used to but beautiful all the same. God's creation is marvelous!

You are absolutely correct! I have never been to any beaches but the ones here. I would love to experience a different kind! But I'll certainly take what I can get. :) When I am on the beach is when I feel the absolute strongest connection to God. When you are just standing there in the sand with nothing but the sound of waves crashing against the shore...it's just truly amazing.
