I am back in Clearwater. You probably think we take a lot of vacations and the truth is…we take a lot of vacations. But, in our defense they are usually mini vacations and we work out butts off in between so we probably deserve to take time off every now and then.
And when this is practically in your backyard, it’s kind of hard not to take some time off every now and then!
Anywho, one of my favorite things about going down to Venice are the trails that I love to run on. The Legacy Trail and the Venetian Waterway are two of my absolute favorites and very close to my home in Venice. In the 3 days that we were down there, I ran 28 miles on those trails and I loved every single minute of it.
Yesterday was beautiful so we took the boat out and I got some pictures of the trail that I like to run, but I took them from the water so you can get a better idea of the scenery.
Check these out:
This is the bridge that I run under. It looks even more spectacular from the water.
Another shot from under the bridge.
In this next picture you can actually see the train depot on the left as well as the Venice Water Tower.
And the best part of cruising along the Venetian Waterway by boat or even running on the trail is seeing the dolphins that play in the water.
And do you remember a while back ago I told you that Osprey actually make nests on top of the channel markers? Well here is a little proof:
And because I know how much y’all love birds, I want to introduce you to a friend of mine. I call him S.C. No, he’s not from South Carolina. He hangs out in front of one of my favorite restaurants, the Saltwater Cafe, S.C. get it? Anywho, without further adieu, meet S.C.
He’ll even eat right out of your hand. Unfortunately, I had nothing to give him because I ate everything on my plate and probably some of MacGyver’s too! I’m good like that.
What did you do this weekend?
Do you take a lot of vacations?
Do you run or work out when you go on Vacation?
