Check out the men all over it as it heads into the port.
We went to lunch with our friends Al and Verniene. Just outside the gate on the other side of the base is the Safe Harbor Seafood Market and Restaurant. It's right on the St. Johns River. The food was really good. I had combination shrimp and fish and Jim had shrimp and oysters.
While we were there we wandered around the docks looking for manatee, but didn’t see any. Here’s some pictures of the area around the restaurant. Jim had his eye on the big speedboat with the three motors. It has to be a man thing about speed. :)
There were three shrimp boats. Jim’s family are commercial shrimpers, so he was remembering his younger days.
A pelican saw me taking pictures and decided to land on the pillar right in front of me. What a great pose.
I was really surprised to get this close.
When we got back to the rig I decided to take a walk in the sun on the beach. It’s quite a distance from one end of the base to the other, but I almost made it. This is the distance looking north toward the jetty.
The pillars are at the other (south) end. Maybe tomorrow I can make it there.
We sat outside with our neighbors and enjoyed the evening breeze. It wasn't as hot or humid today as it was yesterday. We realized we haven’t seen rain since we were in York, PA when tropical storm Nicole blew through. I hope everyone is safe in the Midwest storms.
FYI: I found another function for the droid phone. I found an application to use for grocery shopping. I can add things as I think about it without making a list at home. I can get groceries at any time without having to remember to bring my list.
Another day in paradise.
