Show Us Your Life - Favorite Vacation Spots

It's SUYL Friday over at Kelly's Korner and I'm linking up!  Interesting enough, one of her favorite vacation spots is Orange Beach, right next door to us!  We truly are blessed to live in such a beautiful place.  With that being said, I have to represent Pensacola Beach and Perdido Beach as favorite "vacation" spots since they are in our backyards!  We really do have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world (and the whitest sand).

I took these a couple of years ago on a random trip to the beach in January.  It was way too cold to get in the water, but I am so happy that this view is literally a 7 minute drive from my house.  Amazing, right?

But if I want to actually leave home and go vacation somewhere, I'm still a sucker for the beach.  Jared and I went to St. Lucia on our honeymoon and I think he'd agree with me in saying that it's one of the most gorgeous places in the world.  After all, he did pick out this destination and planned the whole thing.  I would give anything to be hanging out in St. Lucia right now!

 The beach we hung out on everyday...gorgeous!

 The view from our room 1st morning waking up in St. Lucia.

 Scenary while we ate lunch.

 Candlelight dinner on the beach.

 Horseback riding on the beach (and in the water).  Sorry for the picture quality on this one.

 Ziplining through the rainforest - SO MUCH FUN

 View from the top of a mountain we hiked.

And you get a pretty nice tan :)

Have any of you ever been to St. Lucia?  I hope you'll go one day!  What are some of your favorite vacation spots??  I think next time we take a vacay, we may stay pretty local and head over to Seaside or maybe Charlotte, NC or Savannah, GA...we'll see!  J's in charge of planning those things.  :)

Adam and I went to the beach on Saturday this past weekend and we both said the same thing! :) We're so lucky to live in beautiful Pensacola and have our beaches so close! :) We both agreed we never want to live far away from the water!! :)
