We spent our weekend adventuring and swimming. It was a blast. SO sad that the weekend is over! 😦 Check out a few of my photos.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Back to the grind!

That’s a wrap.

We had a super chill weekend. We took the dogs out for a lot of adventures, took naps, walked a ton, and had a few glasses of wine on Sunday. Simple.20130211-121317.jpg

Caught this queen angelfish in the trap. She was beautiful and lived to swim another day!20130211-121339.jpg

Twice stuffed baked seafood potatoes. They were banging, but literally took like 90 minutes to make! Stuffed with shrimp. Mmm. I healthified them at least!20130211-121352.jpg

The trails we walked.20130211-121403.jpg

There was a controlled fire burn here that got a little out of control a few years back. Oops.20130211-121424.jpg


Stopped by the blue hole and was surprised to find both gators hanging out.20130211-121503.jpg



Belvedere is turning 8 this month. He is spunky and ready to play!20130211-121535.jpg

Caught a grouper! Yum!20130211-121557.jpg

and a stone crab! 20130211-121613.jpg

Told you it was a simple weekend! 🙂 I am ready to get a ton of walking in this week, continuing to eat healthy, and stay in a positive head space.

Adventuring is my new coffee.

Sometimes you need to change up your normal routine. As some of you know I stopped drinking so much caffeine. I have had only had a few cups since early December. I don’t miss it. I found my new coffee. Adventuring! This morning my husband and I decided to go exploring. We went to a familiar place the horseshoe, and ended up at a new spot also! Check out this beautifulness! We walked/hiked up some hills and rocks for about 60 minutes.20130130-123216.jpgThe horseshoe.

60 minutes at Bahia Honda.

Taken from my bike or on our hike-20121106-121617.jpgI love the reflection of the bridge in the water.

20121106-121656.jpgSo calm.

20121106-121728.jpgFront side of Bahia Honda State Park.

20121106-121746.jpgAnother bridge view.

20121106-121807.jpgThis is the front side. You can see US 1 to the right.

20121106-121851.jpgIt’s always a good thing to do Jane or Bob!

20121106-121950.jpgCouldn’t believe how calm it was.

20121106-122003.jpgSee the gap in the bridge over yonder?

20121106-122017.jpgKayaks. Yellow, orange, and one green oh my.

20121106-122028.jpgMore Kayaks for the yankees.

20121106-122041.jpgI love this place!

20121106-122051.jpgAfter we rode for 60 minutes, we hiked up to the bridge. I wish I had gotten married here! Love this private podium!

20121106-122101.jpgMaking our way up.

20121106-122113.jpgKeep going!

20121106-122136.jpgGreen is my favorite color 🙂

20121106-122151.jpg❤ Be still my ocean beating heart.

20121106-122203.jpgGreen and sparkles– Doesn’t get any better.

20121106-122219.jpgWas really calm in the channel. Spotted 4 giant spotted sting rays. I mean they were the size of boulders.

20121106-122230.jpgMy husband’s favorite view of the entire park.

20121106-122238.jpgMy favorite shot of the bunch. Something about that green that speaks to my soul.

Had a great morning workout at good old Bahia Honda. I must remind myself to go there every single chance I get.

Sorry to have kept you waiting :)

It’s been a bit crazy around here lately. Sorry for not blogging friends. No worries! I am back on it!

Still doing the 30 day shred. On day 13. My body is so sore right now. I have started seeing a lot of arm definition, and nice shoulder lines as well! I will keep on keeping on. When this challenge is over, I plan on getting back into long distance biking.

Here are some random pictures from the last few days. Hope you guys are all well!



20120910-113717.jpgA sink of green coconuts. Free? I think yes.20120910-113926.jpgBroke my record and caught 4 huge crabs in 1 day. It broke down to over 1 lb of pure flaky white meat. Into the freezer it goes. Free? Yes..;)

20120910-113949.jpgI love my backyard.

20120910-114011.jpgI can’t take credit for this seafood soup but it was marvelous. Shrimp, clams, lobster with a homemade stock. Yum!

20120910-114024.jpgBurdines Waterfront Chiki Bar and Grille. My most favorite place on earth.

20120910-114039.jpgThe Marina. Look at the sparkly water. I love that!

20120910-114111.jpgLeaving our house for another epic adventure. The canal looks so different during the day.

20120910-114124.jpgSee the contour lines?

20120910-114218.jpgChristopher spotted this empty baby sized conch shell. SCORE!
