We decided to be a bit non-traditional this year and spent the day on the beach at Gasparilla Island State Park. It was wonderful...and warm! :-)
We've been relaxing, playing a little pickleball, and I'm reading lots of books. It's nice to see some familiar faces here from 2 years ago as well as friends from out west. Thanks again for transporting our package, Ken and Faye!

Strawberry Picking! We were excited to go back to a local farm to pick their sweet strawberries. There is a new owner this year who planted a different variety. While they are not as big as last time they are certainly sweet and yummy! We picked 11lbs and ate them in 4-5 days. We'll go pick another big batch tomorrow to take further south with as as we're moving to the Punta Gorda area for the next 5 weeks.
Til next time...Happy Trails and Happy New Year! Blessings, Peace and Joy for 2014!
