With my little sis in town this weekend, my family decided to load up the bikes on Saturday morning and head over to Seaside/Watercolor to do a little scenic riding. If you've never heard of Seaside before, you don't know what you're missing. It's funny because I've lived about 45 minutes away from there my whole life but never knew how popular it really was until the past few years. Since I started blogging, I've found post after post from others sharing about their love for Seaside, and it just really hit me that it's a paradise destination for so many people, and I'm blessed enough to go whenever I want! The older I get, the more and more I appreciate where I'm from. I never did growing up, but I'm glad it's finally sinking in now. Maturity? Yikes! That's a scary thought...
Anywho, we all loaded up and headed there bright and early (and by bright and early, I mean 10:30). By the time we got there, it was time to eat, so we tried out The Great Southern Cafe. Holy moly. It was uhh-mazing. Seriously, so good. I had the Grits A Ya Ya, which is basically gouda cheese grits with shrimp, shallots, mushroom cream sauce, and sweet potato straws. It's the house specialty, and it did not disappoint.
Ok, I'll shut up and just let the pictures do the talking...

FYI, we did most of our actual riding in Watercolor, where there were awesome bikes paths and less traffic. Seaside is a great place to bike, too, but we pretty much fell in love with biking in Watercolor. So much fun!
