Florida Rocks!

Back in Florida, and here is the first thing I did:

We spent the afternoon on the water with a cooler of Heinies (cheers Amy!), jumping in to cool off when it got too hot.

Happy Hour begins: from left to right is Scott, George, George's dad George, and mom, Edy. Last night our neighbor came over to tell us that the International Space Station would be passing over our heads at exactly 6.27 and we would be able to see it for 5 minutes. And yes it did; it came into view directly over our site and was moving pretty fast! Not only did we see the space station but we also saw 2 or 3 satellites (one crossing the path of the space station)! Pretty cool! The stars were amazing! We stayed up listening to the waves on the beach and debating whether Casiopia was upside down or not.

This is the beach at low tide, which was a lot of fun to explore. I found lots of hermit crabs, some of which were bright blue with orange stripes on their legs, a party of snails that were opally color with green dots on their backs, a weird wormy thing squiggling around, an old rusted metal knife and an old VW fuse, which we all got a kick out of since George and Scott are VW nuts.

and high tide.

Watch out for these guys! This is a man o war, actually 2 of them. And please note the long blue stingy thing. I got stung on my foot, but it really wasn't that bad; went away after an hour or two and some whisky. And it really was my own fault for getting stung because I couldn't resist poking them, and popping one (which was already dead so no harm done)!

And can anyone tell us what this is? We found it on the beach on our walk this morning. George jumped on it to see if it would pop...

but it didn't.

Well, it is time for my second nap of the day. Here is where I fell asleep earlier doing a crossword.

No sunscreen, oopps! So I've moved to the top bunk of the bus,

and will now drowse off again to the soothing sound of the waves and with the nice warm breeze of the keys softly blowing... alright I'll knock it off.
