Last Minute Beach Trip

So of course everything turned out fine. By 2 I was in bed and by three I was awake, getting ready, and we were on our way! (and I of course couldn't keep my eyes open the entire way there)

We arrived on Friday with sunny skies! I wanted to go to the beach, but everyone wanted to rest (I always hate the first day rest, it bores me). So we rested. That night we went to Wal Mart. First Wal Mart I've been in since I've been in the states. Even though they had Brazilian products, it still made me homesick. I'm not one of those people that loathes Wal Mart. I miss it's one stop shopping, cheap prices, and who doesn't love People of Walmart's website with the crazy pictures? (but let's get real, no one likes they lines) Anyway we got SO MUCH FOOD. And that was a good thing since the rest of the weekend rained, rained away. I was sad, I was hoping to get a little sun! But seriously people, we ate ourselves silly.

We decided to stay an extra day (and when I say we, I mean everyone else) since Monday was a holiday and no one had to work on Tuesday (and when I say no one, I mean no one but me). Thankfully the rain let up a little (but not the cold) and so we went shopping and took a little walk on the beach.

Tuesday we left early, got home safe and sound (Despite my concerns about dying in a head on collision..) and I went straight to school to teach. I was a tired girl.

The trip was really nice (despite my complaints) and relaxing. Though next time I think a little planning is in order (like checking the weather..since that was everyone's biggest complaint...although I'd like to point out that I did and I knew, but what are you going to do at midnight and you're leaving at 3 am?) We didn't take too many pictures, but here is one of Sidnei and I!

And here is everyone:
Me, Sidnei, Sidnei's Uncle, aunt, and cousin (there is another cousin, but she's taking the picture) my sister in law, and Sidnei's brother!

Good Times...

Sounds like you had a good time in spite of the weather. I agree with the planning though; I am a major planner. OCD!

Love the pictures!

I guess with upcoming trips you will learn to be more "tranquila" (they say here. Not sure if that is translatable). Seems like a fun trip and hopefully you can make more of them in the summer, so you get some tanning on the beach.

Well, nice to book for somewhere holidays. You had booked the holiday’s package inclusive beaches were great combination of trip. Enjoying the leisure is very subjective to personal so nothing could be suggested for that what ways should be celebrated of maximum enjoyment and happiness. Nice photographs of companions.

Thanks for sharing.
