This is the first vacation that Kenny and I have gone on together in several years…..
(it’s a dog thing)
I think we spent more time enjoying ourselves and not so much time taking pictures!
Our first night in Florida, we stayed with our friend, Patti, who used to live near us
here in Missouri. We still miss her, but it’s fun to have friends to be able to visit in other
places…..especially near the ocean in Florida!
Our first day in Florida, we went kayaking through the mangroves near Boca Grande.
Kenny loved the stop, because they had giant staghorn ferns hanging in the trees….
they were pretty impressive, I must say….
I had been kayaking with Patti a few years ago and I was so excited that Kenny
was able to come along this time!
We had our rental Jeep packed down with
beach chairs for a beach excursion, post kayaking.
We stopped for lunch at South Beach Bar and Grille
Have you ever noticed how much better your food tastes when
you are eating outside?!
After our beach excursion, we went back to Patti’s and hung out for a while.
Later that evening we met up with more folks at Zeke’s for more
alfresco eating! Yes, lots of eating on this trip!
While we were eating….storm clouds started rolling in…..watching rain develop
here is really quite incredible to watch!
I’ll try and post more tomorrow…..warning….heavy on garden pictures!
