a night on the river

river

Hello from Florida!

We are still here and still enjoying every moment of it.  This place is so beautiful.  It’s amazing how every which way you turn there is water, whether it’s an ocean or a river.  We happen to not only be by the beautiful Atlantic ocean, which is by far, WAY warmer than the Pacific ocean, but we happen to be by two gorgeous rivers.  The Indian river and the Banana river are the two that we cross to get to the ocean.  When I first arrived here I thought the rivers were the ocean, because they are so gigantic that you can’t see to the end of them.  Their pretty amazing.

We had dinner on the Indian river the other night, and it was tasty.  The seafood is to die for down here.  It was the perfect night.  The weather was great, which in Florida, especially this time of year can be a tad HOT, but it was nice and breezy this night.  We ate, drank and laughed, and of course had another good night, with another good meal, with wonderful company.

Thanks, Donovan’s and Bonefish Willy’s!

lost pictures from mexico

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I came across these beautiful photos from Mexico, that my husband snapped while we were there, a while back.  I don’t know how they got lost, but now they’re found.  I miss this place.    A place where your everyday life is easy and simple, and smiling faces is all you see.  You read, eat and sleep, and that’s about it.  I like that life.   I like simple.   I like smiling faces.  Some days I wish I could close my eyes, say “poof”, and I’m back there.  But for now we have these amazing pictures to look at, and DREAM!
