Sunset at the beach!

Every year, my aunt rents out a beach house for her and 20 of her friends to hang out and scrapbook for the week. On the last day, myself, my cousins, and a few family friends went over there to help my aunt clean up and move the furniture back around.

My cousin, Nikki, and I went down to the beach for about 20 minutes with her kids at sunset and I wanted to share some of the photos I took. We had a lot of fun walking the beach and watching the moon change a little bit as it was still a bit too early on in the blood moon phase.

We had a lot of fun hanging out with each other and I feel like I got some good photos for my cousin of her and her kids. It was a bit cold, but the sunset was gorgeous and it was really cool to see the blood moon in all of its phases. My camera definitely didn’t do it justice.

Thanks for reading! Leave a comment below and let me know what your favorite place is.

    1. Thank you! I only live 15 minutes away from the beach and I have no idea why it took me over a year to actually head down there and take some photos.

  5. What lovely photos. I love the beach. I miss it.

    1. Thank you so much! I’ve lived here for a year and a half and that was only the second time I had been to the beach. I don’t know what took me so long!

  6. These pictures are so beautiful! Oh my goodness, would do anything for an evening at the beach now. It’s all frozen & snowy here where I am, and I’m loving it but I really do miss the days when I was able to walk around without fear of breaking anything whilst walking haha.

    1. Thank you so much! We don’t get much of a winter in Texas, so we are able to go to the beach basically year round. I am jealous that you get snow though, we might get some every couple of years for only a day or even just half the day.
