Despite the less-than-perfect weather that is usually plentiful here, we've had lots of fun....browsing a juried art show in the park on Saturday with lunch outside at a cafe on 5th Ave, and yesterday taking in the locals off the pier:
A school of manta rays:
Lil' Miss Seagull, hoping for a scrap:
A dolphin impersonating a shark. There were lots of these friendly creatures showing off for the tourists. I got some video that I'll need to edit. I know how you all love my mad filming skillz.
Lastly, we came across these strange beings, sometimes referred to as my folks.
Some gratuitous shots, playing with my new camera:
Last night we ate at The Dock, and upon returning heard the loudest explosion I've ever heard. Discovered later it was the sonic boom from the Shuttle landing. It was heard all over Florida and as far south as Honduras! Pretty cool.
Today Mom and I will hit the thrift and consignment shops, much to hubby's chagrin. (He claims we drove the Accord and not the van for this very reason...) There's some pretty awesome shopping here, so even though Miss Sunshine is playing hide and seek, we will have plenty to keep us occupied :)
Make it for Monday is still going strong, and will be accepting links until midnight tonight. I'm looking forward to browsing the links when I return on Friday.
I'm hoping to show off some of my mom's lovely condo decor too. I'll get some pictures loaded for another post later on. For those who remember her house tour, you know you'll be in for a treat!
