Vacation....does a body good!!!

Horizons West
Siesta Key, Florida

Well folks, it's been way too long since my last post.  Life is just too busy and if we don't set aside time to just relax and enjoy life it will pass us by!   Since we have been on vacation this past week  I have decided to do nothing but have fun, relax and as my daughter says.."get your hair wet, MOM!"  And I did!!!

Which relaxing really means to me is... that I have been able to go through past papers, posts, some billing work, sort pictures and read magazines!  Does that sound relaxing?   To me...yepper!!  It also means I didn't cook one meal!  Whoo Hoo!

We went on our yearly trip to Siesta Key,  Florida.  Love it there!!!  It was rated #1 beach in USA.  The sand is gorgeous!  We truly spend the entire week sitting on the beach, eating and drinking!  I took lots of pics this year of some of my favorite places to just sit!!!  Hmmm...they seem to be all in the same spot with the same lounge chair.

Just sitting reading a book is something I NEVER get to do.  I actually finished The Glass Castle from last years vacation and started The Pact.  Now that I'm back to reality I probably won't finish it until next years vacation!!

We went fishing and caught our first sting ray...was very cool to see!  Of course we always throw our catch back!

We did our usual para sailing trip too.  I didn't go this year...ummm it was too windy!  If you have never done it before it is a spectacular view of the ocean that you get from way up high!  It's worth the money to do once in your life!

We also traveled a bit to see the other parts of the gulf.  Anna Maria Island and Longboat are unbelievable beautiful.  It's fun to just walk around and site see.  I took some pics of homes that caught my eye.  Well...there are many that caught my eye but hubby wouldn't stop at all of them!  :)

Look at the center structure...very cool!

Very modern...ohh la la!!!

Please tell me this is for several families!

Very rustic BUT on the beach!!
This was another amazing trip to our little secret place that has become very popular in the last few years.   We are all rested and ready to tackle the rest of the year...I think!  

Now that the weather is getting warmer here at home...(not today it's snowing)  I will get working on some pieces waiting for me in the garage to be painted!!!
