rhine riviera

I’m {proudly} from the gulf coast of Florida.  Which means I like my water at bath temperature.  Jumping in the Rhine was a big step for my west coast FL loving heart.  The hardest part was jumping in.  Once in, I was happy as a clam … it was refreshing.  The current moves you down so quickly too – it was a little like a lazy river.  
We took my olympus underwater camera which was JB’s first ever Christmas present to me way back when.
{scared.  anticipating the cold.}
{happy. can’t wait for the cold!}
{even though i’m scared of the chilly temps… what do i do?  glace. i can’t resist}

love you rhine riviera.  
see you soon.

    This looks like so much fun! Reminds me of floating the river in Texas…but classier.
    Also, I spent at least a minute staring at your ring. GORGEOUS.

    Umm, Sarah? Is that really your wedding ring in that ice cream picture??

    And is that really your body in the swimsuit picture???

    I'm going to go vomit up my breakfast now. (no I'm not. the cheerios were delicious, and I don't regret them.)

    Love your wedding ring!
    You two are so cute.
    But, I don't appreciate the picture of you in the bikini. I think you may have single handedly given me an eating disorder.

    You so purttyyyy :).
    I too am not a cold beach lover.
    And here in California. Our water (in my opinion) freezes the fat off you. Seriously I just don't get it. It is rarely ever above freezing.
    But it sure is nice to lay out and read a good book :).
