Season Finale?

Is that you, Kyle???
Home in Port Charlotte
High of 91

We went to Burnt Store Marina for breakfast this morning. It has been a couple of months since we've been there so it was a nice treat. After eating we walked the docks and looked at all the boats. We agreed we both miss the marina lifestyle. We wanted to take the boat out this weekend but there is only one high and one low tide each day for the next 5 days, therefore we would have to go out and stay out for 12 hours. We will wait for a weekend with 4 tides.

There are less than 6 weeks left in the Atlantic Hurricane season. We have seen 10 named storms come and go. The biggest impact here was one that never achieved Hurricane status. Tropical Storm Faye dumped a ton of rain on our area but thankfully she, nor any of the others, wasn't a wind event in Charlotte County Florida. But don't count mother nature out yet. There is a HUGE tropical wave in the Caribbean which is expected to turn into a Tropical Depression by tomorrow. At this early stage in it's life, this system is bigger than any we have seen yet this season. If it gets more organized and achieves name status it will be Kyle. Early forecast models show the system heading north up the Atlantic coastline.

I'm working on the Gulf Coast all this week, so I will spend every night at home. I took 2 days off to rest my body and will get back into my workout program tonight. I'm looking forward to being back on the streets, as opposed to the treadmills.
