Vacation, had to get away

I've been away now for a while, visiting family. Where my mom lives, internet connections are very, very slow. But I figured I had to share at least some pictures of the trip so far. 

Can you guess where we are? If you know me fairly well, that's an easy answer. 

I hope everyone's having a wonderful new year so far.

Crabs at the beach. We eat them like this, yikes.
N. and her cousin on a kid sized VW Beetle. They didn't actually drive it, but there was an 8-year old boy driving it before.
This is what a cashew fruit looks like for those who don't know it.  
My 18 month old nephew. He was eating some fruit, that's why his mouth is lopsided.

N.'s ice cream one night.

  1. These photos are wonderful. That close-up of your nephew is stunning. N looks like she's having so much fun. What a perfect time away with family.

    P.S. I've never seen cashew fruit before. So interesting.
