"In Case I Don't See Ya, Good Afternoon, Good Evening, and Goodnight"

-Jim Carrey, The Truman Show

The next day it rained... all day.  A little disappointing, but we didn't let it ruin our fun.  We all hopped in the car and started driving east along 30a, the scenic beach road that goes through Grayton Beach, Seaside, Rosemary Beach, and other rustic little beach towns.

Our first stop was this lovely little interior decorating shop that Mom found when she was here in the winter for Dad's show.  They had a lot of really nice furniture and pillows, but what really caught my attention was the artwork.  I'm sensing a new chalk pastel project coming up, and I'll definitely use these as inspiration.

The next stop was Grayton Beach.  It wasn't raining at this particular spot along the coast, so we thought it would be perfect to get out and check out the famous beach.  It was a little windy, as you can see in the pictures, but very picturesque.

The next stop was Seaside.  We drove around for a while trying to find a parking spot, then battled the sheets of rain to get to the shops.  Seaside is a very cute little tourist town.  In fact, The Truman Show, with Jim Carrey, was filmed here for its charming, small-town vibe.

The rain started to clear as we were driving home that evening, and made for a pretty spectacular sky outside our balcony.  Debby whipped up a delicious pasta dish for dinner, we each had a couple glasses of wine, and watched a movie before going to bed.  For a rainy day, it turned out to be pretty fun.
