Windy Day in Florida



















We just returned from a wonderful 10 day drive to Maine and back - we put 3093 miles on our 2002 P-U truck! The weather was gorgeous the whole trip. We had sun, very little humidity and clear crisp evenings - but no jacket needed. My niece had PERFECT weather for her wedding day.

So here we are back, one day in Florida and the wind is enough to knock me off my feet! If we didn't know it was 85 degrees outside it would look like a blustery, autumn day!

Here's a few pictures of our day back on the river.... can you see how high the water is around our neighbors docks? There is now a sunk barge tied to our dock (left by our dock builder, the last time he was here to make repairs) - it was floating when we left on our trip. You can see where the walkway bulges out due to the barge being tied up. Oh well, it looked like a roller coaster track after the hurricanes from a couple of years ago anyway. One more bulge isn't going to hurt.

Salty and I both loved the wind blowing in our hair so we definitely enjoyed our walk today!

Wow,
Those are some big waves coming in. We're pulling in all of our boats and shore stations for the season up here on our lake.

Is that the "Vidal Monsoon" look that Saly's sporting?

I've always wanted to go to Maine. I really love the East Coast, especially this time of year.

Glad you are home safe and had a good trip. Hang on to your hats. I think we have more windy weather on its way.
