oh my Sharmaine. that must have given your parents a heart attack!
Sounds wonderful Lisa, my favorite vacations are always beach ones. ENJOY!!
I grew up always close to the beach. At one house we were across the street, in CT. our house was a 30 minute drive. I lived on Block Island for several years and was never more than minutes from the ocean. It is only 12 miles long by 3 miles wide. Alas, now I am land locked in Montana. I haven't seen the ocean in almost 5 years. It would take me a day to drive to the beach, the closest would be Washington State.
