We've just gone through a busy season.  This week seems like it isn't quite as crowded.  The weather has been perfect.  That has given us a little time to do some deck repair.  We've had warm to hot sun and a very pleasant cool breeze.

This evening we made a drive over the causeway to Gulf Coast Town Center and a stop at Miller's Ale House for dinner. On our way back there was a beautiful sunset.  I took a few pictures from the car, because cars were lined up all across the shore on the islands.  Everyone loves a perfect sunset.

Tonight is the largest Super Moon of 2019, or so I've read.  This is the closest it will be to us this year. 
We drove to the East end of the island to take a few pictures from Light House Beach.  There were a lot of people there standing around and also walking on the beach.
I apologize for the picture quality, taken with my cell phone, but better than none at all.  Or so I thought.

From what I read, I think if we were up North, this would also be called a Snow Moon.
Have a happy Super Moon night!

Our weather this past week has been wonderful, in the low to mid 80's during the day and a little cooler at night.
We have been off and back to the island several times during the week and have seen some beautiful clouds, which as you know, always catch my attention and also have noticed how many people have been enjoying the day on the Causeway Islands.  They were doing all kinds of activities like swimming, riding jet skiis, fishing, kite surfing, paddle boarding, wind surfing and also kite flying.  See if you can find the kite in  one of the photos.  There were also a lot of boats out.

Love This View

Just because some of you love this view as much as I do.  And today was another chilly one.  Just couldn't drag myself to the beach.

Another Cool Rainy Day

My youngest daughter has been here visiting for 2 weeks.  Early this morning we had to take her to the airport in pouring rain.  It rained all the way there and back.  It was also pretty cool today, in the 50's again.

Took a few photos on the way back. Most driveways were full of water when we got back.

A Cool Rainy Day

Temps in the 50's here today and a little rain off and on.  It quit for a while and we decided to check the beach to see if there were any shells.  By the time we walked  out Resident Beach Access #2, it had started raining again.  Luckily I had an umbrella, so we continued on.  There were only a couple people in either direction. 
At first I only saw a lot of broken shell pieces, but then we spied an area with shells.  I only picked up a handful to carry home in my pocket, but they are cute little shells. :)

Strange Clouds Today

If you remember how I love clouds, you will know that I see all kinds of strange things in them now and then.

What do you see in these last two.
Perhaps a creature tipped to one side?

I absolutely LOVE our clouds!

I can't believe it has been 5 years since I posted on my blog.  I was looking through some old documents I had saved from Blogger and Trip Advisor, when I ran across all the kind and caring comments that many of my blog watchers had left for me regarding my Daughter's passing.  It brought tears to my eyes, to  be reminded  people cared and were showing so much sympathy for someone they had never even met in person. I felt a need to see if any of you are still around, and how you are. 

I let being on Facebook take up all my time and my Blog slid to the side.  I hope to remedy that and begin posting often again, if anyone is still interested in our little island and our crazy life here.

Our dog Puffin is still going strong!  Well, he does sleep most of the time since he is 8 years old now and doesn't play as much .

Both the parrots are still living and loud as ever.  They frequently are threatened with their lives if they don't quit making so much noise, but that's as far as it goes.  :) So our goofy life continues.

Family still comes to visit often to make our lives complete.  The two of us have encountered numerous health issues, but are both still kicking!

I thought I would post a few photos I took one evening last week, when we were at Resident Access #5, just to get back into the swing of things.

The weather lately has been wonderful.  Cool nights and warm days.  Sometimes a little chilly wind creeps in, but we like the change.
Please bare with me while I relearn how to use the changes in Blogger.  I will be posting more if all goes according to plan.

Florida's Summer Heat Brings Beautiful Clouds

 The last couple of weeks have been a little on the hot side for me, but I'll take it!  The Florida heat and humidity bring amazing clouds!  This evening was just perfect, with clouds, a cooling wind and the rising moon.  What more could you ask for?

The view from our decks this evening.

The critters kept us entertained today.  However, you can tell by Puffin's expression that he was not impressed at all, with Lexi's attempt at a visit.

Have a great weekend!
