If you follow this site, then you know I live on a barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico, west of Tampa, FL. The Gulf is 100 yards from my front door, and the Intracoastal Waterway is steps away from my house. I’m surrounded by water, and I love it.
Our beach is beautiful. The sand is white as table sugar, and our dunes are covered in sea oats and sea grape trees. We have pelicans and sea gulls, and all sorts of marine life, including manatees and bottle nosed dolphins. Of course, during my walks on the beach, I encounter many beautiful young men, like the two you see on today’s photo posts.
Don’t you envy me?
It’s an odd day, weatherwise, today. I took my usual three-mile walk around eight AM. The sky is overcast and the air is still. It’s very humid outside, too. So, I’m grateful for my central air conditioning this morning.
As mentioned yesterday, today will be a workday for me. I have a painting project that will take up most of my time, and there are several other minor tasks I must perform to prepare my rental apartment for the winter tourist season. (That’s right: I’m not just a writer, I’m a landlord. What fun.)
If I’m lucky, I’ll finish my projects today, as tomorrow I’ll hit the road to visit my wonderful boyfriend in Gainesville. I have much to do, in preparing for my trip northward, so I’ll close out this post, and wish all of you a pleasant Thursday.
