End of Summer Hurrah...

With school going back into session for the kids in about 2 1/2 weeks, we are celebrating the "end of summer" at the beach this week. Though Alex seems to have picked up a bug and has been miserable off and on over the last couple of days, we have had a good week so far.

We arrived on Sunday evening and after going out to eat at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., we went down to the beach just after sunset so the kids could splash in the Gulf. On Monday, after sleeping in a bit, we hit the beach around 10:30 in the morning and hung around for a couple of hours. Back to the rental for rest, and after dinner, we walked down to a local mini-golf course to "battle" on the greens.

Tuesday morning awoke with Alex feeling a bit under the weather, but was back to normal for an early afternoon walk over to the beach. After about 90 minutes, we were treated to a visit along the shore line of a dolphin swimming about 30-40 feet off shore. Sorry, no pictures, but a good run down the beach trying to keep up and watch the dolphin swim. After resting at the condo for a couple of hours, we went down to St. Pete to catch the Rays vs the Red Sox (pictures at Facebook).  We left the game after the 10th inning with two tired kids, and Anthony wanting more.

Wednesday was mostly a rain out, with thunderstorms in the morning and rain showers most of the afternoon.  It cleared up enough for Anthony to do a quick splash at sunset.

More to do tomorrow.  Hopefully the kids will go out with their new wave boards.
