Good Morning. I’m coming to you live this morning from here,
That’s our Nokomis house. Currently I’m sitting by those 3 tall windows typing on the computer, not that you really needed to know that but in any case, that’s where I am.
We came down Friday late in the afternoon. I had planned on doing some running but I didn’t run at all over the weekend. I did go walking on the trail though, with Hank on Saturday.
That’s not my horrible picture taking skills, it’s because Hank is so fast he blurs out in pictures. Yeah, that’s what it is.
On Saturday MacGyver and I went to a few garage sales in the morning and then we went over to Englewood to visit with his parents. My Mother in law hasn’t been feeling well so we wanted to go spend some time with her.
Later in the afternoon they came back over to our house so they could see the new baby bird we’re rehabbing and visited with us for a while. It was a very low key and relaxing day. That night however, MacGyver and I got to work on the landscaping because I had some weeding to do and he needed to mow the lawn. Sometimes it seems like we spend half of our life working in the yard…because we do!
When I woke up on Sunday morning I just didn’t feel like running so instead MacGyver and I went out on the boat really early.
It was really early and the sky was a bit overcast. I actually saw a wood stork fly over with something in its mouth.
Just a few seconds later we saw another one fly over.
They were carrying nesting materials. It looks like the stork is gonna be delivering her own baby 😉
We headed out toward the Venice Inlet and I was taking a ton of pictures because like MacGyver always says, I only have 5,000 of the same pictures of the same inlet and probably the same dolphin so I must need more.
If you enlarge this picture you might be able to see that dolphin.
They were doing some kind of diving thing at the inlet and there were police boats keeping everyone away from the divers. MacGyver and I really didn’t see anything except at one point when they pulled a bench out of the water so I have no idea what they were doing.
We caught a few snapper and then I caught some of the absolutely smallest fish I have ever seen and so after a few hours, I called it and we went in. MacGyver went back out for a few hours later and got a few really nice redfish while I took a nap with the dogs and the birds.
Later in the day we went over to the hospital because my Mother in law had to be admitted. We are very glad that she got some immediate attention and that they are taking such good care of her , fortunately, the situation can be repaired and she should be just fine but we’ve decided to stay in Nokomis as long as we can so we can be here for her and my father in law if they need us. I’m sure MacGyver is going to get in a little fishing too. 😉
I got up this morning a little more motivated and actually ran 5 miles on the Legacy Trail.
I can definitely tell that Summer is here but it felt a little drier this morning and not so humid. It was actually nice. I can honestly say that it was one of those runs I really enjoyed. Of course, now, I need to get to work.
What did you do this weekend?
