I can’t believe I haven’t posted since Sunday. What a crazy week it turned out to be. Tropical Storm Debby just about drowned us and almost blew us away, finally leaving on Wednesday. Good riddance! On Tuesday, our A/C went out at home. Having to live without A/C in the summer in Florida is brutal. I don’t even want to get into that whole long story, but after 4 days of having no a/c, taking the dogs to work with me, and staying at my MILs house (very thankful we were all able to camp out there!), we FINALLY got our A/C working again yesterday.
It was my intention to be lazy inside the cool house today after the week I had. But as I was laying around reading this morning, that little voice in my head kept telling me to get up off my butt and get outside and move. So I listened. And instead of heading over to the park, I decided it was the perfect day to drive to the Memorial Causeway, just about 8 minutes from my house, and walk over to Clearwater Beach. Sometimes, it’s fun to play tourist and I never get tired of the beautiful scenery that we are so lucky to have right here in our own backyard.
It was gorgeous outside and the sun felt great on my shoulders (and my face which is now sunburn – oops!). It was definitely hot, but the view and the smell of the salty air made up for it.
This is my favorite bridge to walk over!
Isn’t the view toward the beach amazing?
That looks like fun!!
This is the boat my brother and sister-in-law got married on in 2003.
Beautiful Clearwater Beach
New Hooters and Ron Jon Surf Shop!
These people have the right idea.
I love my Gizmo to hold my key and ID.
Headed back to my car.
Proof of a great walk. 5.39 miles in 1:36
This salad was soooo good after my walk!
The rest of my day will be grocery shopping, cooking a nice dinner for hubby and I, and hopefully more reading. Now that I’ve shut up that little voice in my head, I can read without interruption. It really was a nice walk and I’m so glad I got out there and did it. I have to keep this body moving and just do it.
Tomorrow, hubby will be home so we’ll get to spend the day together. Yay!
What fun things are you doing this weekend?
