No really big news.
I came back tanned and relaxed. Missed the pups, played with the pups who seem to have missed me and shadowed me for three days. I've got my head down, writing after a week-long stay in Florida. St. Pete's Beach to be exact. While we were there, we kept track of our days by sunsets.
Second night we went to a Texas Rangers' game (they happened to be playing in Tampa Bay--lol). I think half the stands were Ranger Fans. Nice stadium. We were actually cold from the air conditioning (it's enclosed).
Their Ray tank was pretty cool. Can't believe my pictures turned out so well.
The third sunset was on Anna Maria Island accompanied by our favorite meal: red snapper that had been caught on the boat that morning, scallops, fresh coconut shrimp (tasted like it was still in the coconut) and the most amazing desert of kumquat pie. It was the oddest thing, part of the restaurant was a private party getting married on the beach, so we witnessed their ceremony (couldn't hear it because of the waves) and then watched them get their wedding pictures. One thing I would have changed...the bride and groom were wearing shoes.
Sunset number four was after a terrific day on the number 1 natural beach in America. We stopped on the drive back and had fresh toasted coconut ice cream, made locally. Oh and did I mention that just before that we had Hawaiian shave ice? Yes, the ice cream was a second scoop. Tim took this picture and called it: CUP O' SUNSET FOR TWO
Our last sunset...dinner on the beach, followed by sitting in the sand and watching the sun fall behind the horizon. Then a fruity coconut drink and a walk along the shore.
VERY PEACEFUL -- I even brought back a little to share.

Intrigues where honor and danger collide with love.
