Kayaking!


We took out our kayaks this morning. It was a great row minus me dumping myself into the water. No worries though I saved my phone! These pictures are from Saddlebunch Key MM 15.20140324-160743.jpg

I can’t wait to go again!

Update.


Sorry it’s been a while friends. This will be a quick blog as well. Just wanted to let you guys know that I signed up to “run” a half marathon! I know it’s crazy. I hate running! It’s hard! It’s scary! That is what I decided to do it! My friend Jocelyn and my husband will be doing it with me. I have a training plan that will help get me ready by January. Super excited. I started training last week, running a few miles here and there. However, this happened yesterday- WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGE!

20130909-120743.jpgOperating on my toe. Do not try this at home kids.

20130909-120758.jpgAll wrapped up!
I fell into a small hole in my backyard, It was covered by grass and I simply was not paying attention. My left foot went directly into hole! I have bruises all up and down my left leg, and obviously a super sore toe. I swear this is JUST my luck!

In other news we had some work done to my powerboat. It is running beautifully. Here are a few ocean shots to get your mind off that mangled toe pic!

A trip to Sea Center.


So this weekend my neighbor informed me that my 17 foot powerboat was sinking! It really was! Our bilge pump failed, battery failed, and my boat’s ass filled up with hundreds of gallons of water. My husband bailed it out, and we have been watching it closely ever since. The leaking went from 4 gallons per hour to about one gallons per hour. Great, but not that great. We decided to take it to Sea center in Big pine key to get fixed. We think it’s a busted drain pipe, fingers crossed! The best part about living on a island? We literally dropped our boat off, and walked home in about twenty minutes. Here are a few pics from along the way.

Weekend sights.


It’s been a super nice weekend. I have managed to get in lots of exercise, and not totally over indulge. Here are some pictures for you 🙂

Picked this up from the market- Tri colored corn, raspberries, okra, squash, grapefruit, red potatoes, 2 sweet onions, broccoli, green beans, tomatoes, green pepper, avocado, 2 organic spinach boxes. We also went to the seafood market in Marathon. We got 2 pounds of key west pink shrimp, 1 lb of hogfish, 1 lb of yellowtail snapper, and 1 lb of large sea scallops. She also gave us some smoked salmon to try. It was amazing.

Got these herb plants for 2 dollars a piece. Sweet basil, spearmint, and rosemary. I honestly hope I can keep those cuties alive!

Saw this and almost bought it. Adorable.

We had sushi for lunch. This is the king crab roll.

And the spicy tuna sandwich.

Nautical stuffs.

Decided to take a quick boat ride last night. My oh my was it cold! It was so beautiful though!

The best raspberries I have had in a long time.

Raspberries, orange blossom honey, and plain greek chobani yogurt. The best breakfast ever! Yum.

That is all I got so far for ya! I will be sharing my meal plan for the week on the blog later. Got to go get some exploring and playing done right now. Talk to you guys soon!
