Down To The Sea
We finally made it to Longboat Key!! Yay! Actually, we've been here for two days but I just now got around to posting anything. Hey, this is a honeymoon...we've had other things to do. Ha! Yeah, like eat and take painkillers. Where I used to have a tooth is still hurting fairly often but I'm down to just a half a pill a day and half at night. And walking on the sand hurts my foot a fair amount and the rest I won't go into... BUT, other than all that, we are having a great time. The beaches are beautiful here and due to location, fairly unoccupied. And virtually no little screaming anklebiters running around! Pure bliss.
I have swam quite a lot and Jack sits on the beach and reads. That's okay. I did get him to come in the water some yesterday. It is so warm; it's just about the perfect time of year here. Not so blazing hot you can't stand it but just warm enough to swim and laze around all day.
It rained some today so we explored the island a little and the next one over. And the food!!! I have stuffed myself on more than one occasion. Like I said, we are having a great time despite some physical ailments. It kinda gets me down that I seem to have these issues a lot of the times we try to go anywhere but I guess crap just happens when you get older. It's not like we are a couple of twenty-somethings on their first honeymoon. LOL!
Tomorrow we will move over to the Sarasota area and visit the beaches of Lido and Siesta Key, then start our journey northwards sometime Saturday or Sunday. We are making that part up as we go. Sorta.
If any of my regular Florida readers would like to meet up with us if we pass near your area we would certainly like to see you. I don't ask people directly because I'm kinda self-conscious that way and don't like to assume someone would even want to meet me. However, some of you I feel like I really know and wouldn't mind seeing. I assure you Jack and I are harmless and are not axe murderers, bird poop collectors or obnoxious yahoos that drone on for hours about ourselves! Anyway, email me if you have time for lunch or something.
