Beach Bums

Friday night we went to a cook out nearby on campus and had hot dogs and hamburgers. Then we went to the campus intramurals. Ally and Luke's teams played each other. One team killed the other team..I won't say which one was which. It was fun watching them anyways. Then we went to Starbucks and Walmart. This Walmart has palm trees growing the parking lot :)I took a jog this morning and went to the beach. I think it took me about 45 minutes to walk/run there and back. "We" sent the alarm for 8:45 and at 9:30 Ally was still snoozing away so I decided to take off on my own for a bit. The parking lot for the part of the beach I went to was already packed when I got there. It was quite a pretty morning with lots of joggers. I saw someone pulling in a fish from their boat while I was going across a bridge on the way to the ocean. When I got back Ally was FINALLY dragging herself out of bed. We packed up some snacks and books and headed back to enjoy some more sun with a couple of other girls. Now we are back at the dorm and getting ready to go get some lunch and do some shopping.

Mom and dad bought me a plane ticket for my birthday. I woke up at 4:20 a.m. on Thursday so I could be at the Dayton Airport by 6:00. My flight from Dayton to Atlanta left at 7:00. I don't remember my last ride on an airplane being quite so "bumpy". I guess it was just a windy day up high because we hit a couple of spots where I was grabbing the armrest.
The temperature in Dayton when we arrived at the airport was probably in the mid 40s. By the time my plane landed in West Palm Beach, FL at noon it was a beautiful 75 deg. Ally and her friends picked me up at the airport about 1:30. We hit up Chick Fil A and then headed back to Hobe Sound. We took a walk around campus and ate supper in the cafeteria. We stopped by to look at the van that Ally and her friends had a wreck in. It was pretty banged up.
Ally had a class in the evening so I took a nap while Fred, the fish, swam wildly in his tank.When she got back we stopped by the beach real quick and then went to a local grocery store to pick up some snacks. Two of Ally's girlfriends joined us in her room last night and those snacks came in handy (Mom, both boxes of those cookies you sent are ALMOST gone!)
I slept until about 8:30 while Ally was in class this morning. Then I joined her for chapel at 9:30. After chapel, I smiled the whole way back to the dorm. The weather is JUST wonderful this morning! Beautiful blue sky, warm sun and beautiful breeze through the palm trees just does something to your mood. More later!
