We just got back from a week long vacation on Dauphin Island. I have never felt so relaxed in my entire life!
We used to go there when I was young. Daddy loved to fish from the shore. I don't think he ever caught much but that's what he loved to do on his weekends off. We would go to the beach with him and make sand castles. My older bother Ted would almost always run up the beach from the water all dripping wet and jump right in the middle of our castle.
All these great memories came right back to me upon seeing the beach on Dauphin Island. It was like I was 8 years old again. Life was so simple then.
Now we're Mom and Dad and it's the kids' turn to make sand castles on the beach. Dauphin Island is still the beautiful place it always was when we were young. I'm just so happy we can take our own kids there now and watch them build their own memories.
