I'm in the rec room here at Siesta Dunes. It's Saturday and it's nearing 5PM. Not a soul is in here but me; kinda cool, huh?
I've been doing what you all told me to do, that is, relaxing and enjoying myself.
We had a cloudy, rainy day yesterday but we made good use of the day. We bought some groceries at Publix (an awesome grocery store chain down here) and fresh grapefruit and grapefruit juice at Albritton's.
Today the sun is shining and it's about 70 degrees. Lon fixed us breakfast this morning. We always eat breakfast late down here, between 10 and 11:00. That way, we don't really need to eat much again until dinner time.
After breakfast, Jared took his fishing pole and headed for the south end of Crescent Beach to see what kind of fish were biting. Due to the wind and subsequent waves, all he caught were lots of snags which resulted in several lost lures, but he loves to fish so he'll try again soon.
Lon and I walked the beach together for a while and then while he sat by the pool, I walked the beach with my CD player and the audiobook, Loving Frank. I can't remember the author's name but the book is about her relationship with Frank Lloyd Wright.
After that walk and while Lon and Jared went to the tackle and bait shop, I wrote for a little while in my tablet in a lounge chair beside the Gulf and then came back inside the condo. I made a mini-sandwich of horseradish cheddar cheese and rinsed off half dozen fresh strawberries for a mid-afternoon snack. I noticed the guys had been enjoying the carrot cake we bought yesterday. I'm looking forward to another piece of Publix's key lime pie after dinner tonight. I can't be in FL and not have some of that good stuff.
We normally eat out at around 7PM every evening. Last night, we feasted on King Crab at Captain Curt's after a game of Yahtzee in the condo. We can observe a wide stretch of the beach and Gulf waters from the table where we eat and play games. Are we lucky or what?
I didn't bring my camera memory stick down here to the rec room so pictures will have to wait until next time. Besides, I haven't taken very many yet. You know what happens once I get on a roll!
Wishing you all a fine Saturday evening and Sunday.
