Rested and Relaxed

I don't even think that the title of this post constitutes proper grammar, but it's how I feel right now. I didn't relax too much. I spent a lot of time doing some light reading, but I also got to throw in a novel and some bonding with my cousins.

My cousin Matt brought his college buddies with him and they had lots of fun playing beer drinking games. I got quite a collection of pictures for future bribery.

Here's a picture, taken from the second story balcony of my Aunt's home. In the background you can see the ocean. The small strip of land (island) is the only barracade separating them from the open sea. My uncle and aunt bought this property in the early 80's (or 70's)-I wrote about the renovations in an earlier post. They said over the years, more homes have been built and they are afraid that in the near future, so many homes will be built that it will eventually obstruct their view.

I'm a little tired right now. I'm getting ready to go to bed, I've got a long drive tomorrow. I will write about tropical storm Ernesto scaring me (when I arrived on Thursday).


  • Glad you're relaxed and rested! =) I'd love to go to Florida sometime...(last time I was there, I was 3, I think)

  • Lucky to get such a good property! It must cost a fortune to buy near the coast.

  • Relaxing does us so much good. It's too bad I have to go back to work tomorrow. :o(

  • A very nice view. IT's where I'd sit with my morning coffee every morning--except the mornings when there's a tropical storm passing by.

    I'm glad you made it thorugh in one piece.
