So, you may know that MacGyver and I took a little mini vacation. It was a much-needed break and we had a really good time. I’d love to tell you about everything that we did but that would take forever and it would probably bore the crap out of you so I’m just gonna give you the highlights.
One of the best things about going to our vacation house is the fishing. MacGyver and I usually have competitions because we both love to fish. This time around MacGyver obviously won but since he caught, filleted and cooked the fish, I think I actually got the better deal. 😉
The beach at the Venice Inlet is beautiful and sometimes when the conditions are just right, the surf is pretty decent too. We take our paddleboard and our kayaks down here a lot and hop around the little islands. We also like to find pre-historic sharks teeth and I love collecting shells on the beach.
We also spend a lot of time on our boats. The dogs absolutely love it. There’s a really low sand bar on the other side of the inlet where we take the dogs to swim. If the tide is low Hank can actually stand up and he really loves it.
The dogs also love to fish. I swear. They watch the pole and they know when you have a fish on. They even try to help you take it off.
That’s probably because they want to eat it….
Sometimes if the tide isn’t low enough, Hank has to swim on the sandbar, and after a few minutes he gets tired and jumps on Boomer’s back. Unfortunately this weekend Boomer wasn’t around him, but I was, so Hank jumped on me and ripped my bathing suit top off. It was a good thing there were only 20 or so boats nearby and 30-40 people in the water around us…otherwise I might have really been embarrassed.
Another great thing about Venice is the Legacy Trail. I absolutely love to run on it while we’re down there. I ran 9 miles on Saturday and 6 miles on Sunday.
I even ran the big hill located on the trail:
I run so much when I’m down there, it’s become a retirement home for my running shoes.
I planned on running again on Monday morning but I had to walk instead because on Sunday I was on the computer when the dogs suddenly came flying into the room. I quickly turned to see what all the commotion was and I pulled a muscle in my back. Instant. Severe. Pain. I still have pain if I twist too far so hopefully it goes away soon.
So that’s pretty much the abridged version of what we do down there. We left late Monday to come home. Unfortunately MacGyver was really tired after spending many hours out in the sun on the boat. I probably should have driven but I didn’t and MacGyver swerved into the path of another car on the way home and almost killed me! Fortunately I saw the other car and screamed before a collision occurred….
The good news in all this is that MacGyver can no longer make fun of the huge dent on the back of my car that I acquired whilst backing out of the garage because I didn’t almost merge into another car and kill my spouse! Winning! There is always a silver lining in my cloud! 🙂
So tell me about your weekend. What did you do?
Ever lost your bathing suit in public?
