life seems to be a beach....


Mr. Handsome, relaxing...reading the ingredients in his no sugar energy drink...
It was a bit cloudy, but simply gorgeous....the white sands, the warm water, so nice.

We stopped for barbecue on the way home, no offense, but it was a little hole-in-the-wall place, but oh dear it was good!

Mr Handsome again...we ordered brisket, and ribs, and some Mac and cheese for grandma.  It did not disappoint.

Those palm trees!
The sky cleared up nicely as we left...we went for a walk along the main drag in Clearwater, found a Starbucks, iced coffee, mmm.

It's always a nice drive over that causeway near Tampa.

It's still gorgeous's nice to be here, but shh, I am missing the kids now....

Last evening, we went out to dinner with Paul's cousin and her husband, after visiting them for a bit first...they have a lovely home...all opened up to the pool area...

Grandma...92 years old, and still living by herself!
Isn't their house nice?!

We went to dinner, I had steak and chicken, and a garden salad, and a baked potato, so yummy, and it's such a treat to not have to cook!

Ah well...Happy does NOT seem like Halloween, here in Florida.  I miss seeing the grandkids all dressed up, but you can't be everywhere, and this is where I am, right?  Have a good, cozy evening!

Good morning Della! It looks heavenly I have to say. Does Grandma live in Clearwater? It’s lovely there. All that gulf part of Florida is so pretty. Aren’t the beaches beautiful! Enjoy your time 🥰
