Sunny Florida

We have been enjoying life in sunny Florida since early November. One of our favorite activities is kayaking on the many rivers and in the bay. We even bought our own second-hand kayaks and Brendan got a truck rack configured so we can bring them with us on our travels.

Friends, Mark and Rai live here in Fort Myers and we are enjoying time with them. Here we are getting ready to take a helicopter ride while attending a local air show.

Sean flew down from Bloomington, Indiana were he attends IU, for a visit over Thanksgiving. We had fun showing him the beaches and taking him boating and kayaking.

Granddaughter, Kaylyn, brought alot of 11 year old energy and excitement with her when she visited the first week of January. We had a wonderful time beachcombing, swimming, kayaking and shopping with her.

Brendan's sister Anne Ellen was in nearby Naples with her girlfriends for a few days and we got to share some time with her, too. Of course, we took her out for her first kayaking experience and were rewarded with some up-close time with several dolphins that day.

We will be leaving Florida on February 9th and heading north to catch Mardi Gras.
