On Thursday we got our release papers from Lazydays. While we enjoyed our stay there, we were ready to get back to a quieter more natural CG. We gave Don and Jinny a hug and told Tiffany that we were going to stay in the area a few days in case anything popped up. We hooked up and drove Tawanda for the first time. She is one smooth ride! It will take me a while to get used to her, but I like driving her. We got an email from our realtor and we have put the house back on the market. That changes things as for as our travels the next few months but it is what it is.
Friday was a very laid back day. We basically just went to the supermarket and hung out with Sherry and David back at camp. They are here too for a few days. It’s been great visiting with them again. We called Tricia and Dan who are staying at a nearby SP and invited them over for a paddle since we are waterfront on Tampa Bay.
We all got our boats out on Saturday and enjoyed a gentle breeze while we paddled amongst the mangrove.
We saw a lot of birds in the mangroves, but I’m sure that for each one that we spotted, there were probably a dozen more that we didn’t see. Here’s a Great Blue Heron, an immature Little Blue Heron, a Snowy Egret, and a Yellow-crowned Night-Heron.
We paddled around a point and there were a few of these American Oystercatchers.
Further on down a canal, I heard some splashes in the water. It was just under this Pelican. He had just relieved himself so that he could get comfy in the top of the tree.
Wildlife, calm waters to paddle, and great friends to share it with. It just doesn’t get much better! Today we plan to pedal around the park some with Sherry and David. Dan and Tricia plan to come over with their bicycles too and we’ll all relax and watch the Super Bowl commercials. Who knows what all we’ll get into.
Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
