Friday Photos, edition 2

So, I think since y’all seemed to like the Friday photos post of last week I’ll just incorporate it into the program here with a little twist.  I’ve decided to change the photo theme weekly depending on, well basically whatever I feel like.

Earlier in the week I told you we were going out on the boat and heading out to Stump Pass which is absolutely beautiful.  I’m pretty sure I told you I would try to take some pictures for you.

I aim to please.

I had to share that photo first because MacGyver is such a sweetheart and knows how much I love mermaids so he bought me this bracelet.

We got up early on Tuesday but it was a little too cold just yet so we hit up breakfast and then sat by the pool for a little bit.

Those are our friends, Randy and Peggy and if you look closely, you might spot Hank’s tail waggin photobomb.

When we finally got on the boat it was absolutely beautiful and quite sunny.

We made a quick stop at the marina for some bait and I took a picture of the bridge.  Most of the time when we fish under the bridge we see all kinds of bats, it’s a little eerie and unnerving.

You drive down the Intracoastal Waterway for around 15 or 20 minutes heading toward Stump Pass which is the entrance to the Gulf of Mexico.  Just before you get to Stump Pass the water color changes and the difference is stunning.

Check out this photo and tell me if you can see the manatee…or his nose…

We fished for a bit at the mouth of Stump Pass and then we decided to visit our little Island that we love.

I got off the boat and the first thing I did was take a picture of the awesome shells and greenery.  It got a little cloudy but it was actually a good thing because none of us were in the mood for a sunburn and it kept it nice and cool.

I snapped a lot of photos out on that Island so bear with me because dammit I’m sharing!  I thought they would turn out crappy because of the lack of sun but they actually came out very cool.

I love the shells, LOVE!

The shells here are insane! I always bring back bucket fulls.

pelicans

These pelicans were doing whatever pelicans do on a sandbar. I was so excited to see white ones because we typically only see the brown ones.

We were out there for so long that the sun started to go down but I didn’t want to leave.  The sky was ethereal.  I hope I captured even a tenth of the exquisite beauty.

It started to get a little cloudy but look how pretty the sky is.  Can you see the dolphin fin?

The dolphins were all over the place this day

The dolphins were all over the place, can you see the two of them in this picture?

Here’s a view of the Island on the other side.

Just before we left I took a quick photo of MacGyver doing what he loves to do and that seemingly random photo has become one of my favorite photos ever.  It completely defines him.

A boat in the distance, fish in the water and a pole in his hand. 🙂

And I took this last photo just as we left the island.  Check out the sky.

BEAUTIFUL!

BEAUTIFUL!

And here are a few randoms.  Typically we never have water coming inside the boat but for some reason this old boat put off a massive wake and Peggy and I got soaked.

Thanks ass wipe!

This is one of my favorite boats and it belongs to one of the neighbors.  It’s a Chris Craft and there is just something so beautiful about all that wood.

Look at their Christmas Tree!  Can you see it just behind the boat lift.

And I can’t leave you without one final picture.

Boomer has given me permission to add this picture in order to satisfy the requests of his fans so I will comply.

Boomer and the bed he ‘borrowed’ from his brother:

That’s a handsome boy right there!

Just like last week, tell me about a random photo on your phone or tell me about a photo of something awesome you did this week.  GO!
