Sunday Beach Day

Friday Follow Up
First off, I need to go back to Friday's post and thank everyone for their comments and travel stories! I apologize for not responded to each comment like I normally would. But, I know you all will cut me some slack while I'm on vacation.


First Vacation Dinner
We started our vacation off with a nice Roasted Veggie Salad. After close to 9 hours in the car, we wanted a dinner that was loaded with veggies and that was healthier. We roasted new potatoes, red, orange, and yellow bell peppers, squash, zucchini, and red onions and served over a bed of spinach and a spring salad mix. Of course, had we had a grill (and it wasn't raining) we would have grilled all the veggies.

 
Sunday Beach Day
This morning we got up and eased into the day. I had my breakfast (oatmeal with bananas and peanut butter) out on the balcony. I firmly believe that's how I should wake up and eat every day. We decided to take our workout to the beach. We ran just under 25 minutes. Running on the beach is a killer workout. The only downfall...tender toes from the sand. But it was sooooo worth it.

After the run, we spent about 3 hours just sitting out on the beach soaking in the view. I couldn't even read my book because the view and sounds were just too wonderful to ignore. It was incredibly windy today.

After a while I began to feel just completely abraded by the wind and sand. We needed to make a trip to Target, so we packed it up, cleaned up, and headed out for errands (just in time for the afternoon heating shower).

For dinner, we had Black Bean & Quinoa Burgers (recipe here) with sweet potato "fries." We enjoyed the meal on the balcony. I think every dinner should be this way.
I hope you all have had a great weekend.
