[Catch Day 1 here]
We lucked out with some gorgeous weather on our trip. Not a drop of rain after our drive down! The forecast said Saturday would be our warmest day, so we decided to spend the day on the beach.
We started off with a lovely breakfast of eggs, fruit, bacon, OJ, toast, and coffee at the inn.
Mazen, mom and I went on a nature walk by Old Baldy and down to the marsh.
We were on the lookout for snakes and gators, but we didn’t see any on this hike.
I packed up a picnic for the beach to keep us fueled for the day, and we headed towards the Shoals Club.
Our picnic had a bunch of portable snacks and finger foods that would be easy to eat without a table and chairs, and I brought everything in a cooler to….keep it cool!
For our picnic, we had fruit, pepperoni, Mini Babybel®, crackers, carrots, and vanilla almond balls to nibble on.
Mazen loves to have fun unwrapping the Mini Babybels, and I love that they’re delicious, portable, and a good source of protein and calcium. Plus, everyone in the family is gaga for cheese!
Grammie and Pea pretended never to have seen a Mini Babybel before and asked Mazen for instructions on how to unwrap and eat them. He loves being in charge, so it was funny to watch him instruct. Check out his stern teacher face: “No Grammie, I will show you. First, you take off the wrapper, then you pull this white tab and the cheese is inside!”
We had a great time on the beach, and Mazen chased birds, smashed sand cliffs and managed to get sand on every inch of his body : )
I just started Big Little Lies! So far it’s really good, and I can’t wait to watch the HBO show after I finish it. I spent a few hours just sitting on this driftwood reading…. (haha j/k!)
Later in the afternoon, we had a few snacks up at the club for a late lunch – nachos and crudités with dips.
We went back to the inn to shower and get changed, and then golf carted ourselves back to the Shoals Club for a sunset cocktail hour and dinner.

Since basketball was on and we’d had such a late lunch, we ended up having apps at the bar for dinner. I had a Caesar salad and fried oysters. (Go Zags!)
Stay tuned for a recap of our final day tomorrow!
