We find ourselves spending more time in the mornings just relaxing on the back deck. I spend a little time responding to some questions from followers online, and then make a quick breakfast for everyone. Today we reached 1000 followers on @instagram !!
We pack up the car and decide to stay close to home. We arrive at Flamingo Beach at Paradise Bay a couple minutes later. Chase runs with the fishing equipment out to shore, and Heather and I set up the beach chairs. It’s a beautiful sunny day.
Flamingo Beach ❤
We enjoy a kalik and use the beer koozies our guests Jim and Dawn left us. What thoughtful gift. It was a pleasure having the Johnson’s stay at our home and they are welcome back anytime.
Thoughtful gift 😍
I join Chase fishing off the rocks for the next couple of hours. Of course Chase catches a couple mangrove snappers. I decide I’m better sitting in my beach chair enjoying a beer and head back to shore.
Beach time ☉
We pack up the car and head back towards the house mid afternoon. I drive the entire way with a huge leprechaun hat on, and turn a few heads of some of the locals. 🍀🍀
We have a drink on the back deck as the sun pops out again. It was a nice day to stay nearby the house and not do too much. I run to Bristols Liquor store for some wine, and pick up pasta and garlic bread from Tracy Bowe’s Convenience Store.
After dinner Heather and I stroll around the property and comment on how the palm trees are so much bigger than when we first layed eyes on the house. The gardens look great with so many blooming flowers and beautiful shrubs. Hard to believe we didn’t even have a lawn here a couple years ago.
As the day comes to an end we are left with a glorious sunset. It’s beautiful. This sunset arrives just as the news arrives of the passing of our dearest Granny back home. Heather says it best…. “our hearts are broken”
RIP Granny, this sunset is for you. ❤
