Vacation at the beach

Stephanie, Tanek and I spent a week in Siesta Key. It is a very beautiful beach as you can see. We had a great time. The weather was Hot, the water warm and it was windy for the first part of the week. We had rain on Sunday night and most of Monday, but the rest of the week was good. We have decided this would be a good yearly trip for us. Siesta Key is rated #3 of the 10 top beaches in the US. #1 was in Hawaii and #2 was somewhere else in Florida. Tanek loved the water and if he could have his way he would have been out there without his mommy and his nana hanging on to him. He thought we cramped his style. He loved the waves just coming all over him.










He also liked the sun and sand. As you can see he is getting quite tan. The sand is as soft as talcum powder and so white. The water as you can see is clear and a beautiful aquamarine. It felt so good to just be in it. We found lots of neat shells and just enjoyed the time basking in the sun and surf. We got home today and it was back to reality. Washing, grocery shopping, cleaning, and watering this dry dry land of ours. We need RAIN!. I have more pictures to post but for some reason this blog is not posting right so I will wait and see if it straightens up.
