Finally A Shopping Day

Wednesday Workout
I want to first thank you all for your kind, generous comments about the pictures I posted yesterday. You know how to make a girl blush!

This morning started out much the same, with the exception of Jason heading out at 7:30 to watch the Blue Angels practice. I got up and ate on the balcony before heading down to the gym for a 30-minute run. I added in 6 HIIT intervals to help pass the time. I also did a couple of the combos from Kick, Punch and Crunch. Then I headed down to the beach. Jason was so sweet and took down the chairs and umbrellas on his way out so I could head down there before he got back.

Here are some pictures Jason took at the Blue Angels' practice.


Beach Time & Shopping Time
The oil was less prevalent today. But the beaches are very empty. It has a very ominous quality. There are reporters scattered about and men in orange "Oil Patrol" shirts riding around on 4-wheelers or walking in groups with large trash sacks.

We sat out until about 1:30 then we decided to get off the beach and actually leave the condo - shopping trip. It was hard opting to actually get dressed in real clothes, real shoes and to do hair and makeup. But I can't come down here and pass up a trip to the outlet mall in Foley, AL.

Sadly, I didn't find near the deals I'd hoped to find. Usually I load up on great bargains. Sigh...not this time. I did find a few items at Ann Taylor Factory and Banana Republic. Oh well, better for the pocket book. After we left the outlet mall we hit up a place in Orange Beach called The Wharf. There is a fun restaurant that we like to go to called Ginny Lane and there are some fun touristy shops. I found my sis another thank you gift too. I'll leave you with one non-beach picture to prove that we did actually get dressed in normal clothes ;-)
