Look what we saw today!!!

So yes there is a hurricane in the gulf that is over 200 miles wide (bigger than katrina) and we came to the beach. John and I needed a break so we headed to his moms (nana's) in navarre beach. It was amazing to see how the waves and wind were so strong today. We went down to the beach and the waves were amazing. Some of them were as tall as me when they were crashing onto the beach. Brady could not stand up by himself in the wind. He was determined to do it and he would get down and try and every time it would blow him over. The boys got to see kite surfers (wind surfers) and loved it!!!! The winds were sustained at about 40 miles per hour on the beach (or so I was told). The beach was amazing and very foamy. Anyway, just thought it was amazing that the hurricane is almost 200 miles from the beach we were on and yet it was really affecting here. Several of the roads had to close because the water had rose so much. Anyway, it was pretty cool.
