Last Blast before Class!


I was happy as can be to get in one last weekend in one of my favorite places, Grand Isle, before I report to that “s” word tomorrow morning.


On Friday evening, J & I and BFF Monique along with out of town friends Stacey, Laura, and Christie visted the new Camp Crisco, my sis and BIL’s beach house at Amaris Isle on Grand Isle. More on the new beach home in a later post. It is a “work in progress as new things are moving in daily. It is way, way blog worthy!




Even though it stormed most of Saturday morning (longer coffee talk!), we ventured to the beach by early afternoon. We drank, gossiped, drank, laughed, drank, gossiped (get the picture!) as the sun began to shine.





Surrounded by great friends, family, and salty air makes for a great weekend. We remained beach side until sunset where we “stumbled” back to the camp.

I love this group shot…




Now, I guess I need to get it all together and get in the mind set of that dreaded “s” word, for I must set that alarm again (one that has not been set for me since June 1). Morning will come too soon.

I am so glad my summer ended with one last, incredible blast. There is really no other place like Grand Isle.

Blast before Class, y’all!


  1. Dear Ron, just found your blog through NanaDiana and am now following you ~ :)...we have a few more days of starts Thursday, and my "Baby" will be a Senior ~ I just counted up the other day and this will be my 34th consecutive year having children in this school district...(yes, they were kind of spaced out...LOL) ~
    Nice to meet you, and good luck tomorrow!

  2. Ron, It looks like y'all had a great "last blast"! You are so bad teasing us about a look at the beach house. Is that a shell covered mirror frame and a coral chandelier?...and a chair with egrets/herons on it? I'm loving what I see, and can't wait to see the finished look.
    Have a great first day back at school tomorrow.

  3. It looks like you had a great weekend- Nothing better than spending a weekend with those you love and enjoy every moment with...especially those you can GOSSIP with! Good luck when the S* hits the blackboard- xo Diana. Hey...I see Anne found you- GREAT lady- xo Diana

  4. Any time spent at the beach is heaven...I had my one little day trip this year so I'm craving a nice long beach trip.


  5. I'm glad you had your one last blast to the beach before "s"! I so remember that feeling. Have a great beginning of the "s" year! :)

  6. Sounds like a great "last blast" to me Ron!! We still have a few more weeks off, my kids go back after labor day but I'm already dreading it! Looking forward too seeing more of the beach house. I love her table and chairs and pretty chandy! Have a great week!
