Well, we Geezers are living the highlife! Been busy showing the ladies all the sights on our little slice of paradise on St. Joe's Pennsula! Monday Night we had a great dinner at a place called the Dockside with FRESH Apalachicola oysters, fresh tuna, fresh shrimp and chicken tenders for Kathy. Dessert was large servings of homemade Key Lime pie topped with a beautiful sunset over the marina.

Tuesday started with walk on the boardwalk and beach, followed by a paddle into the teeth of 15-20 knot wind & waves. The upwind paddle took about 45 minutes till we stopped for a bite of lunch on the beach. The return trip was much quicker (about 10 minutes!). A little resting around the campsite followed by a simple homecooked dinner in the trailer flushed down with multiple Margo's and a sunset over the Gulf that was superb! Just before turning in for the night, we took a walk to the beach to see the stars, completely undisturbed by surrounding light pollution! Absolutely phenominal show.

Today (Wednesday) is the ladies last day in the sunny south. While the weather has not been too warm, it has been a welcome change from the "in like a lion" March weather of upstate NY. A morning walk on the beach with a little shell collecting has become the closest thing to a routine we have developed (well, Margaritas in the afternoon is another routine) Today we were greeted with red flags flying on the beach warning of high winds and dangerous surf. As we exited the beach, a volunteer at the park warned about high winds coming about noon time, but so far - no problem. Tonight we will treat ladies to a Mexican dinner in town to celebrate their time with us. By this time tomorrow, the Geezers will be flying solo again. We will miss the Geezerettes (a little!)
