We arrived in Treasure Island! After three days of traveling, Brady and Buddy were thrilled to spend time in their new yard. Their days have been filled with daily walks to the dog-park on the dog beach, chasing lizards and guarding their yard.
We spent the first few days unpacking, reconnecting computers and exploring our new area. Finding a place for everything in our tight quarters was easy for us. With Sunset Beach across the street, we knew spending time outdoors would be the priory.
Living in a beach community has been great. We have walked or bicycled to almost every place. After our daily two-mile walk with the dogs, Scott has been enjoying a nice run or cycling the bike trail. I have been cycling to a nearby yoga class after our morning walks. We are both determined to use this time to focus on being fit.
Over the weekend we attended two Christmas Boat Parades. The boats were amazing and the crowds loved it. Friday night we attended St. Pete’s boat parade. We watched while eating at the Blue Parrot where we enjoyed delicious crab cakes and coconut shrimp served with pineapple salsa and raspberry sauce. We shared our view with a fun couple from New York. Saturday we attended the Treasure Island boat parade. Gators Cafe, located on the inter-coastal side, served a great tuna steak sandwich while we watched the boat parade. We met a fun Iowa couple escaping the cold winter for a week. At the end of each parade there is a big awards celebration. The winning boat was the husband to my nurse at my allergist’s office. What a coincidence!
Can you believe how great the boats looked? So creative.
