What have I been up to?

Summer has arrived. Well, not technically, calendar-wise. But it is hot, buggy, and very green in our neck of the woods.

Recently, we had the pleasure of spending a *very* relaxing week on Anna Maria Island, Florida, with our Atlanta kids. This one ranked right up there on my list of all-time favorite vacations.

The guys went fishing. This is a tarpon (about 120 lbs). Dylan is just a little excited about it. Capt. Josh there in the background runs a fishing expedition boat. We highly recommend him if you are in the area and are up for some excitement.

This is a manatee. We were in chest-deep water and were only about 15 feet away from them. 

Relaxed vacationers.

These delicious stalks have been coming on steadily. We pick about this much every other day. 

Hope you are finding joy in your days!

Fisherhubby IS a Floridian - - - from Fort Myers - - - be he doesn't know where Anna Maria Island is, so neither do I.

Looks like it was GORGEOUS there and lots of fun.

Oh - - - FH DOES know what a tarpon is, he LOVES to try to catch them too.

So glad you had such a wonderful time. Believe it or not, I once caught a 125 lb tarpon myself!!! So I know that is no easy feat!
