Day 2 in Florida


We made it to Florida safe and sound! We did arrive to very wet weather and there is a good chance of rain everyday here! But so far we are lucking out! We are staying in a little beach house about 150yards from the beach. It is nothing fancy but is comfortable and houses us all. It is a 2 bedroom with a kitchen, screened in porch, and outside shower area. It is a little out dated style wise!! HA! The kids love our little beach house!!! It is perfect for us! Way better than an overpriced hotel stay!

Yesterday morning it started out with rain...so we decided to start our day off with crab fishing. We went into the bay since they said it is easier to crab hunt there. And yes, it was easier! Both Todd and Zander caught several crab!

After about an hour and half of crab fishing the sun was really starting to come out, so we decided to head back for some beach time. The beach was great! Fortunately the beaches we are at have lots of sand bars which does help with keeping the waves down! We aren't adviced to get in very deep because of all the storms lately....rip tides! But the sandbars help that too!

Today we will continue to pray for no rain!!!! We plan to go crabbing at another area in the bay...then hoping to go to this park so we can try out out our snorkeling abilities!

Tomorrow will be a lot fun as we are planning to rent waver runners for a couple of hours. If the rain cooperates, that should be a blast!!!!

Enjoy this wonderful time. I lived several years in Ft. Myers, and then later after I was married, we lived in the Ft. Lauderdale area. The beaches were fun to go to-I especially loved the West Coast beaches. The rain-seemed like a daily thing at about 2 or 3 O'Clock. I miss that now that we're in Phoenix. : ) I hope this is a restful and relaxing time.
