Fort DeSoto

Husband and I had an adventure this weekend.

It was the first weekend in quite a while that we did not need to be out of town or that we did not have guests - so we were able to do....whatever.
So, on Saturday we decided to explore where we live with our kayak.

It was still chilly for us Floridians but we managed to stay warm enough.
We saw lots of beautiful things....

This is where we launched from but the park is so big, we have decided we need to go back to explore some more.

The Sunshine Skyway Bridge is visible from plenty of spots.
Pretty to look at, scary to drive over.

There is a pretty big area of the park - just for dogs!

This guy swam right under our kayak!

And he had a giant remora fish on his back.

We saw lots of critters, although these ones were not alive.

And of course I had to pick some things up for myself ;)

Then we headed to Whiskey Joes which is just across the street from us (I still can't believe we live here).

And we watched a beautiful sunset.

On Sunday after church, we hit up a farmer's market, visited my grandmother and went running on the causeway. Well, Husband ran, I rode my bike. But can you believe we get to run here whenever we want?
We are very happy and appreciative for this and many other things.

I hope everyone's weekend was as wonderful and relaxing as ours.

  2. Such a beautiful place! I can't believe that guy swam right under your kayak! And I looked up remora fish, hmmmm..., they like to get a free ride! And you found a wonderful sea urchin too!!!
