What Can I Say! Another Gorgeous Day In Florida!

Ken and I were on the pickleball courts from 8:30 to 9:30 and had so much fun. Not too many people there until later so we got to play about 3 games before leaving to get ready to go away with Ernie and Noela.  

After showering and changing, we went in their truck to the bridge that crosses the Peace River right before you get into Punta Gorda.   The bridge is a mile long and we walked across it to have lunch at Hurricane Charley's.

What a great place to take a walk!

  On the walk across, we saw dolphins -

Dolphins are so adorable!

and 1,000 (I am not kidding) of stingrays.  It is their mating season and they were everywhere!  I have never seen so many in one place!

There were so many schools of stingrays - crazy!!!

We also saw such colorful geckos -

So many different colors on his tail.  The other "guy" had a
rather fluorescent green head!

We ate outside at Hurricane Charley's enjoying the view of the Peace River.  The food was good too, but it took a long time to get it.  Fortunately we are retired and not in a big hurry!!!

A view of Hurricane Harrys from the bridge!

What a setting on the Peace River!

A very busy place!

We saw a lot less stingrays on our mile walk back over the bridge to the truck. We returned to the CG around 3:30 after stopping at Publix and Michael's.  Ken spent a lot of time outside packing things in the car and rearranging things in the basement of Wilbur.  He took down the 100 feet of rope lighting that decorated the tree at the side of our campsite and packed away chairs, etc.

I spent time putting things inside Wilbur in their proper place for traveling which entailed rearranging some of the cabinets so I would have room for the decorative items that we have enjoyed seeing for the last 3 months.

Ken grilled chicken while I cut up and sauteed peppers and onions for the chicken cacciatore that I am making for the 4 of us for dinner tomorrow evening. Then Ken and I worked together to make salads for tonight and tomorrow.  

I called Cindy to make sure they were safe.  They are camping in Oklahoma after leaving Texas and avoided all of those tornadoes and huge hail storms.  We were so happy to hear that they were safe and sound!  We also called and sang Happy Birthday to our son-in-law, Bob.

Ernie and Noela came over from 8 to 9:30 and the women were the winners of Racko.  The men really dislike that game because they never win.  Kind of like Skip-Bo for the women.  We had purchased half of a Key Lime Pie at Publix and it was delicious.  The 1st Key Lime Pie we have had while in Florida!  What will power!

It was another amazing day!
