Eyes Wide Open – Week #19


Good morning!

We had a much cooler week with temps in the low 80s and yesterday we had a cold snap and it dropped below 70! Brrrr!  I checked out the beach and was happy to see the Red Tide had finally gone and there were no more sad remnants of sea life scattered on the shore.  It certainly hurt tourism this summer when most Europeans like to visit. Thankfully everything is pristine again and ready for this coming winter season and the return of the northern snowbirds.

Enjoy your Saturday!


One of the Lifeguard huts on Siesta Beach

A couple of sailboats heading out from the bay

Siesta Key Beach and it’s pretty white quartz sand

The Gulf looking chilly (to me anyway!)

I don’t know what you call these things but they always make me smile!

We have an English Tea Shop here and they have a cutout of the Queen

welcoming everyone.  I love it!

      Gina, I too love the sea. It gives me energy and every now and again a dolphin will arc in the water just to let me know everything is all right 🙂 I know how you feel 💕

      You mean the Queen or the bendy guy? They’re both funny 🤣

        They are. Particularly like the Queen.
