Hunting for Manatees II

03-14 Florida-1326-Edit

We were bound and determined to see so manatees so Bridget and I went kayaking among the mangrove swamp area near the condo.  We saw dolphins and cool birds, but no manatees. We still had a great time!

Hunting for Manatees I

03-14 Florida-1253-Edit
We stopped at the Manatee viewing center near Ruskin, FL before we could check in.

Bridget is excited.

She became a little "steamed" when there were no manatees!

That was a busy few weeks!  After the wedding, we went to Tampa Bay and stayed in a condo at the Little Harbor Resort, came home and worked for a few days and then went to California for a week.  This past winter really needed 2 spring breaks to thaw out.  The building above is the hotel area and below is the beach area and pier.  It was a nice place, but unfortunately, it never got very warm for the rest of the week. We had a good and relaxing time with Bridget!

Adventures in the Mangroves

After a week of iPhone pix, I have another. Bridget & I went kayaking in Florida and I dared not bring my camera though I wished I had it.  The colors and reflections were beautiful.

Love Thursday

After the wedding, we had a little more togetherness.


We went to the Emporium in Celebration with sisters Andreaa and Paula on Friday night for our own pre-wedding festivities.

Road Trip!

Such excitement! Here we go to Tiff's wedding...

Made It!

We drove through the night last Thursday and made it to Celebration, FL On Friday. The wedding was Saturday afternoon and this is a phone pic we took with my Mom. I took many other photos but for now, the phone pic will do!
