weekend photo diary #1.

hamburgers, check.
fun in the sun, check.
the latter part of the 4th of july weekend was spent playing tourist. we got a couple of rooms in a hotel and hit the town. we did so much in a day that i'll probably break up the pictures into a few posts. still an overload of pictures to follow.

we headed out early to get good parking,
then set off to find breakfast. 

(dress, fighting eel)
ham & cheese crepe.

after breakfast, we spent several hours at the beach. the weather was nice and sunny, and the water was cool. no pictures taken since i was in the water.
next stop, coffee.


the international market place had so many goodies. tons of rings and jewelry and stuff, but i couldn't stop to look...the others wouldn't have it. apparently, they weren't on this mini vacay to shop.


 we headed to the hotel to see if we could check in early, but no such luck. we grabbed lunch and ate at the park.
some of the best burgers in town.

and who can resist this tree. i just had to get one swing in.

we went to the zoo to kill time, but that is a post in itself. pictures to follow.
finally, we were able to check in.

not exactly the lap of luxury, but it was free (paid with mileage) and served its purpose...a convenient place to sleep.
next stop: hotel pool, parade, and a movie on the beach.
stay tuned...

in case you missed it, check out the first part of the weekend:

  25. Mmm crêpes... they had a mobile crêpe truck at a festival I went to last summer. Getting a hot tasty crêpe at 5am after a night of dancing is awesome.

    That tree is so cool! Nothing like that grows here. Can't wait to see the zoo pics.
