Computer Games - International Space Station Overhead

(Wauchula, FL) -  We didn't do much today, but I have to post some pictures that were sent to me from my mom who got them from a friend.

These ladies build horses out of scrap driftwood they find.....
 

Not only are they beautiful but they are using what Mother Nature has left behind to create another form of art.

We played shuffle board this afternoon, and walked around the park.  I played computer games and Jim read most of the afternoon.

We grilled dinner and then watched recordeded TV shows during the evening.  Still no rain in sight for our area, temps around 80 and clear skies.  After sunset we got to see the International Space Station go across the sky.  We've seen it before but tonight it was very high and bright, and was in view for about four minutes.  I even managed to get a somewhat shaky picture of it.

A great day in paradise.

So many things can be done with driftwood, and those horses are about the nicest thing I've seen.

I've seen the horses before, but an still amazed at how wonderful they are!

We saw the station a couple of times last year. Watching for it reminded me of when we saw Spudnik when I was a child.

Those horses are incredible! I'm in awe of the creativity these people have.
Sounds like a nice laid-back day.

So, when are you going to put a visit to the Space Station on your full time travel plans? ;c)
