Just memories now, but what good ones.
We were with Patt and Jim for two weeks! The “kids” were there for the first week too. Patt’s pool got used everyday…the Little’s wanted to swim just about every minute. They all stayed in another beach house, which worked out wonderfully for all. We visited Cayo Costa, Cabbage Key, The Bubble Room on Captiva, Matlacha. We saw dolphins, manatees, eagles, tortoises.
Walking to the beach and viewing the sunset with a glass of wine was a daily ritual.
Love this place….I’ve walked the beach, rode a bike, sat with my feet in the pool, hung outdoors all day. If this is retirement is like, yes please. I feel like a kid who can do whatever she wants…..so I painted.
Just hiding out for a while. All is well. I tried “thinking about” posting my photos to Instagram. Nah. I’m just comfortable sharing here. My old justification…I’m not in your face (or feed), you must come to this “blob” to visit me.
Here is a painting I completed in the fall, a moment to remember. Looking out from the porch of the Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island.
I’ve been painting quite a bit. Some not worthy to share, but I do kinda like this one.
Fresh caught bluegill, a summer Saturday evening, and favorite people!
“Grammie, let’s take a bike walk to the park.” Meaning they ride their little bikes with training wheels, and adults walk. Makes sense.

Happy husband today, he finally got the boat out. We had a nice day of cruising from Wyandotte to Belle Isle. So many were out enjoying the day, both on land and on the water. I felt like I was eavesdropping into peoples’ day as we floated by.
What a perfect day for a birthday party at the park:
Detroit’s riverfront walk looked so inviting from the water. Saw several couples riding their bikes along the river, I’ve added that to my summer bucket list.
I also entertained myself looking at the clever boat names.
I would be glad for the weather to stay “Forever June”.
