Last day with the big camera

I took my big camera out after our treasure hunt for a little while on the last day.  Using my phone and the GoPro most of the time was so NICE.  Because I kind of love my camera.  Like a fourth child.  So I'm very protective of it, and sometimes that gets in the way of having fun.

But this year we were SO close to the beach, I took it out and when I was done, I went and put it back inside.  It was such a luxury to be so close.

Anyway, back to the pictures.

The ocean is so beautiful.  Have I mentioned I think I need to live by it ALL the time?

What a nice smile this Cam Spam has.  Oh wait.  What is that?  In the picture below, crushed into his teeth?

Candy?  Yes.  Ugh.  Making its way into cavities..  How lovely.

And all of Liv's pictures that are so beautiful have that darn blanky in.  But it was the only way she would be happy.  So oh well. 

The pirates return

The pirates returned to Destin, again on the last day we were there.  Those pirates sometimes procrastinate and don't really have it all together.

The beach was a little overcast but it was still beautiful.

They were exploring some shells until Bowman spotted the bottle.

He was pretty excited.  Don't be fooled by that look of. . . well I don't really know what kind of look that is.  But also the map got stuck in the bottle.  So it took us awhile to get it out.

Keanz is concerned.  And Kimi was happy to be there.  And be eating.

Then Kimi got tired of waiting around and decided she was ready for a swim.

But the maps were finally retrieved and the hunt could begin.  Settle down, Aunt Emily.  Just calm yourself right down.

Yeah we kind of did not follow this rule at all.  Because who wants to worry about shoes?

And then we found the treasure.  Which I do not have pictures of because I was taking a video.  Trying to anyway.  It was pirate loot.  They loved it.

"Dolphin-ing" around the beach

Dolphin-ing around.

Like horse-ing around.  But we're at the beach.  By the ocean.  And horses are fast and you can ride them and they're nice.  And dolphins are the horse of the ocean.  According to my logic.

Anyway.  Here's some dolphin-ing around on the beach.
