Last week I traveled down the coast a few hours to Ponte Verda, FL to meet up with a friend from back home in Atlanta. Due to living four hours apart and busy lives, we don't often get to see each other. So when the chance came to hang out for the day we took the opportunity!

Lauren was vacationing at the picturesque, beachside resort and invited me down for the day. I had never been to that part of Florida before. It's amazing how different the beaches are when traveling just a little ways down the coast! The water was aqua and the sand white and shelly.
The beach wasn't crowded at all. SUCH a contrast from Tybee (where we usually go on the weekends here in Savannah). I loved watching all the teenaged surfers in the waves. Reminded me both of the movie Gidget (which I used to rent from Blockbuster when I was home from school with a cold) and one of my favorite book characters, Todd, from the Christy Miller Series. I feel like they had to have been between 14-15, old enough to be out by themselves but too young to have a summer job.

After we filled our bellies we headed back out to the beach to enjoy the sand and sun! I could only stay for a few hours before I had to head back home to Savannah, but I'm really glad I got the chance to see Lauren and hang out for the day! Thanks for the invite and the fun day, Lauren!
