We started the day with a call from our daughter in Phoenix, telling us it was 32 degrees there. Hmmm, it's 65 here. Let's go to the beach.
Kathy and I spent the day at Boca Grande, Boca Pass and Gasparilla Island State Park. We brought shrimp cocktail and coctails of our own. It was overcast but 77 degrees when we got there. The water was about 72 and tolerable to a surf walk. We sat on the sand bar and watch the waves rolling in, singing "Proud Mary." After we finished eating, Kathy fed the rest to the birds.
We then walked the shops in downtown Boca Grande, looking at real estate flyers. Only 4-6 million to get a beachfront home. Unfortunately we forgot the checkbook. Yeah. There are mid island properties to be had for 800k. There's a vacant lot on an adjacent canal, leading to the ICW, which leads to the Gulf for only $175,000. Nah, we'll keep our sites set on a boat.
Above are some pics from our day. I'm gonna try to post a video of Kathy feeding the birds.
