Happy Weekend

{The foam was insane, I've never seen the ocean whip up such thick foam.}
It just lingered on the beach, sitting in the sand.

Happy Friday everyone! Above and below are a few shots from the end of last week's vacation. Unfortunately for the last four days of my trip the temperatures dropped to around 70 degrees with overcast/rainy/stormy skies and high winds. My whole group was pretty bummed. We made the best of it though, layering up in sweaters (who ever heard of sweaters in August?!) and trekked down to at least walk the beach each day. Lots of shopping and exploring some of the other areas occurred as well. All in all it was still incredibly relaxing and wonderful to be with family and friends. One other thing that occurred during this weather was the opportunity to see the ocean in a different light. Gone were the shimmery blue waters that allowed you to see to the bottom of the ocean. Replacing that was steely grey, dark blue water. It was rough and powerful. Sometimes I feel we often forget just how powerful nature is. It gave me the opportunity to see another very beautiful side to the sea. (And to take some very different from my usual; yet still beautiful photos.) I hope all of you can find some unusual beauty in things this weekend! Catch you all on Monday :)
