Not just a one day event, I'm blogging every day about what I'm thankful for

I got up this morning full of anticipation for a day outdoors. The sky was very cloudy and it was drizzly. My heart sank. But I was determined that it wasn’t going to get me down.

We went ahead to the outdoor Saturday morning market which was lovely. Lots of people milling about looking at the various vendor wares and grabbing some delicious looking pastries (I did not indulge). Breezy but there were less clouds.

So we headed to the beach at Treasure Island. Got a great parking spot, grabbed our towels, beach chairs and my Nook. Finally, got my toes in the sand

After about an hour the sky got very dark and we could see it raining out over the water far away. I was so hoping it wouldn’t come to land.

But it wasn’t long before the wind picked up and brought more clouds with it. We were feeling like we were being sandblasted. Not sure if I’m red from the sun or the wind. But the beach emptied pretty quickly (and us with it).

Home now getting ready for tonight’s adventure – Arena football. I dearly love football and have never really cared for arena football. But Tampa has the championship team from last year so we are going to watch the Tamar Bay Storm play the New Orleans Voodoo. Concert before the game (band unknown, but I love all music) and plenty of tailgating food, and drinks! Plus I’m wearing a new sundress that I feel fabulous in πŸ˜€

Lots to be thankful for today
It skirted us. So glad because I really wanted the sun. The sun returned.

Comments on: "Thanksgiving Project – Beach Day (4)" (5)

  1. Glad you’re having fun. Gotta love Florida weather of downpour, egg-cooking heat, or so nice that you’re sure a downpour is hiding over the horizon (and it usually is). πŸ™‚

    • It never gets too hot for me. I usually visit a friend in Delray Beach (near Boca Raton) in August. Unfortunately, she hates the beach. But I spend hours basking in the heat poolside.

      • I think my weight and naturally high temp made Florida rather harsh when I lived there. It was a tough 4.5 years, but I do miss the interesting wildlife and writing by a lagoon.

  2. Making animal shapes out of your clouds. πŸ™‚
