A Day to Share

We took a trip to Jacksonville to pick some wayward Midwesterners-visitors from Iowa for a few days!  Always nice to visit with friends who know you thoroughly and still want to spend time with you.

We took a boat ride today and stopped at our favorite restaurant, Corky Bells.  High 80's for temperatures, no humidity, and excellent food and company made  a wonderful time.

After our great feast, Bill rememebered he hadn't turned off the bilge pump in the boat.  A turn of the key proved it had dire consequences on the boat's battery!  He got a ride to a nearby store, purchased a new battery and then back to the boat to install it.

We had a great laugh at Bill's expense!  Engines all fired up and we head for home!

We saw this guy on the way home.  He didn't launch into the water when we got close for a picture-it was nice to get a shot of him and get a good, albeit safe, look from the boat! 

We are off to be tourists tomorrow.  I will post pics Saturday morning, Lord willing.
