A Beachy Keen Day

Sarasota, FL      High:  73    Low:  46

We headed to Siesta Key Beach today with the weather looking not too favorable for a beach day, but it was relatively warm, and we wanted Connor to experience the ocean. He hadn't seen it since he was a baby. The kids got in and waded and jumped the waves, having a ball. Connor decided to bury Trevor in the sand. His family helped...
His mom was in charge of getting sand out of his eyes...
Ya think Trevor is ready to get "unburied"?
While Sparky was taking pictures, a couple came up and the lady asked, "Are you Sparky?" "Why, yes, I am!"  Sparky was shocked that somebody knew her. It turns out that Dwight and Mary McKenzie (sorry if I spelled that wrong) follow our blog, and when they saw Connor's mohawk haircut at the beach, they figured it might be us! They are staying at Sun 'n' Fun! Nice to meet you folks!

Then the sky began to get very dark out over the ocean. Time to think about heading in, boys...

We had plans for the evening to hear some great entertainment. We'll tell you all about it tomorrow...It was a terrific night and an especially memorable one for Cate.....


  1. I cannot even imagine getting in the ocean in winter. How nice that must be. Looks like you were all having a fun time.

  2. At least you were able to get to the ocean and enjoy some beach time, before they head home.

  3. The same to you, and hope this year brings many blessings to you...thanks for reading us!
