What A Day!

Ken and I were up rather early and took a long walk around the CG - 7000 steps worth!!!!!  We left at 9:30 for a contemporary Church Service about 6 miles from the CG.  We had no idea what to expect, but it was a very good experience. Excellent band and singers and the minister just came to the church 1 week ago from Minnesota.  He seemed so relaxed and excited to be there.  Enjoyed his message.

Back to the CG by 11:45 and we got ready to go to Manasota Beach.  Changed, packed our lunches and we were on the beach by 1:00.  It was so sunny when we left the CG but by the time we got to the beach it was so hazy and no sunshine. The good thing - it was warm.  We spent about 2 1/2 hours finding sharks teeth with Ken using his "snow shovel".  We have never been on a beach where we found so many sharks teeth in such a short time.  We found lots of teeth just walking along the surf without the "shovel".  It was so exciting to be so successful. We found 340 teeth - Imagine that!!!!!  What an adventure!

These 1st 2 photos are the haze when we arrived at the beach!

These last 2 photos are the haze when we left!

As soon as we got about 2 miles from the beach it was sunny and warm.  I believe it would have been sunny all day if we would have swam in the pool at the CG. But, then we would not have found all the sharks teeth.  We made the right choice!

An unbelievable find for only a few hours!  Our best!

Ken cleaned the shells and teeth while I got dinner ready.  Only finished dinner at 7:30.  Watched the Olympics and worked on some jewelry!  What a good day!
