Just a few more images of our vacation in Venice, Florida, for you to enjoy. Just click on them to enlarge them.
I think we were at the beach every day but one, and yesterday Emily told me that Sofia asked her to “go to Nana’s Beach House”. Well, it’s a bit of a hike from Pennsylvania! Maybe next year, Sofia!
Alligators alarm me. I have no desire to harm them but don’t know if this is reciprocated and thoroughly doubt that we will ever have any sort of relationship. Pelicans however, though we are distant in feeling and they are not warm and fuzzy by any stretch, do interest me a lot and I love to see them fishing and diving.
This year it was too late for oranges, but the grapefruit was wonderful. Emily made a glass of fresh from the tree grapefruit juice and it was amazingly delicious. And Sofia ran back and forth busily bringing us fruit.
I am so glad – oh, this is “Thankful Tuesday”, isn’t it – that we all had time to be together in the spring of 2010 and enjoy the world of gulf coast Florida. The children change so fast. A year from now, whatever we do, they will be quite different people from what they are like now. The message is to enjoy and be aware of every moment we are given, and thankful for its blessings. We can’t bathe in the same stream twice………
