Last week while Charlie was away on a 10 day
trip to northern Mozambique, I decided
that it was time for the two of us to get away
without the children for a few days. So I picked
a destination, figured out what to do with the children,
made the reservations and told him that when he got home
from his trip we'd be leaving again the next a.m..
When he got home on Thursday night I told him where
we'd be going the next day (he was thrilled) and I told
him to pack his shorts, t-shirts and fishing gear.
Friday a.m. after running several errands, we headed
out of town to this place..... Nascer do Sol.
Do you see anybody on that beach? We only saw
a few people the whole weekend! It was lovely.

We took all of our own food....which was so
strange to only cook (and clean up) for two.
Our first meal.....steak!
They were so good and so big we couldn't finish them.
Like our fancy grill? The management provides
the grate.....and the bricks. :-)
Dinner on our 2nd night - hamburgers and
roasted veggies. The view was spectacular.
We just kept thanking God for such a
beautiful place and that we were there alone!!
Charlie's double decker burger.
Since Charlie was gone for Valentine's Day I
took a red velvet cake with us so we could
celebrate late. It was delish. BTW, I used
Pioneer Woman's recipe....it was a bit dry.
Just saying. That's why we added extra icing.
Besides eating, we spent time on the beach
(slathered up with sunscreen, of course)
Looking UP at he camera really helps reduce
the double or triple chin.

We walked way down the beach to that
spot on the right of the photo.
An eel. We saw several that day.
This will go down as one of our favorite
mini-vacations. We talked, slept, watched
movies, took walks, ate, talked, read, listened to
music, ate some more, prayed, talked some more.
The only other people we talked to were the
cleaning folks who were there for just a few
minutes each morning. We didn't even mind
when some clouds rolled in. And we never
got tired of looking at this view.
