We left for warm Florida on Tuesday, arrived to a lovely warm night so we had some tapas and sangria on a rooftop bar in Sarasota.
Wednesday morning we golfed. Oh that is such a nice sport when played in sunshine and with buggies. We didnt play very well but lots of interesting birds on the course (including an ibis eating a snake) so that kept us from despairing over our odd shots. Wednesday night - sunset cruise and we saw lots and lots of frollicking dolphins and an eagle couple. It was a lovely evening and the sunset was breathtaking. I spilled red wine on me as it got a bit choppy at one point but that just proves that you should stick to bubbly on twilight cruises.
Thursday - Thanksgiving - we went to the beach while the food was cooked for us. Very spoilt we are. My first swim in the gulf of Mexico. Salty and around 19 so refreshing. This was followed by an amazing amount of food. Phew.
Friday - started with rain so we went for a brief shopping trip as its Black Friday after all. We didn't buy anything as the queues were horrific. And by the time we got to the stores the sun was out! So the afternoon was spent on the beach (Siesta Key) and some swimming in the sea. Dinner on the beach as well, checking out the sunset once more. A good last night in the warmth.
Saturday - back north. Its cold but sunny and time to decorate for Christmas as its 1st Advent.
