Naked guy at a lake; Martin’s back in Florida …

Hi, friends and readers:

Isn’t nature beautiful? I just love this morning’s photo post. I don’t know what is more lovely — the water and sunshine, or the young man’s behind. Which do you like best?

Speaking of nature … my boyfriend and I returned from the Bahamas yesterday evening, after a week’s visit there. We stayed in Hopetown, on Elbow Cay, an island in the Abacos. We rented a house with a private dock and a boat. I can tell you, Hopetown is one of the most beautiful places you will ever see. If you ever get a chance to visit there, don’t pass it up. It’s a tropical paradise. The residents are friendly beyond belief, and the snorkeling’s amazing.

We snorkeled dozens of reefs; you can see straight to the bottom in thirty feet of water. We caught plenty of fish and Florida spiny lobster. Every night we barbequed on the charcoal grille. The sunsets were spectacular viewed from our second-floor, covered porch. We found two beautiful conch shells we brought home. They’re now resting on our fireplace mantel. We had no Internet service, or even cell phone service, so that’s why you have not heard from me since October 6th. It was actually nice, not having any digital services available. It helped s concentrate on the simple, beautiful things surrounding us.

The blog has stayed busy during my absence. On October 12th nearly 1,800 people stopped by. Thanks to everyone who visited. It seems many people went back to review old posts from my archives, which is nice to know. I promise to post new material religiously, in the days ahead.

I’ll have a busy day today: doing laundry, visiting the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming, and hitting the supermarket to replenish our fridge and cupboards. My boyfriend’s working today, so I’m on my own. Wherever you are, I hope you’re enjoying your Friday.
