Images from a week by the sea

A symphony of blues.

9.5 years since a successful heart transplant.

Our long shadows on a morning walk out to the end of a pier into the ocean.

Caped in towels, they disappear around the curve.

Sunsets every evening over the Gulf of Mexico that took my breath away.

If that’s not sacred, I don’t know what is.

Enormous excitement over the honey badgers at the Naples Zoo.  I swear Whit has not seen the YouTube video, but you’d think he had because his rendition of “honey badger don’t care” is eerily good.

    Looks like a beautiful trip! Here is a dumb question having grown up on the West Coast: do a lot of people in the East vacation in Florida for spring break? I feel like every Easterner I know was there was week!
