Remember the books "Where's Waldo"? Here we have, "Where's the Guy That Spent the Night on the Beach?" Look closely. We arrived at 5:00 a.m. hoping to see tiny turtles making their way across the beach, but instead we watched this gent crawling on the sand. Me thinks he had too much party the night before.

vickihumphries This summer has been the best. I'm remembering & enjoying all of the reasons I moved to Florida. Even the afternoon thunderstorms ๏ธ. Today was paddleboarding. Once I discovered the cove with new manatee calf and mom, it became a regular stop on our route. Baby is growing. I'm sad to say there are already motorboat marks on the baby. Part of the problem is they are so friendly. They do come to you and they do not remember the sound of an engine is danger. We have named our fav Kenneth. Kenneth likes to rub on the fin of the board. Today Kenneth rubbed and rolled and goofed around until he was twisted up in my ankle strap. So with patience we were able to get knucklehead out of his dilemma ... Although initially I was worried we would need to go for help ... Not 2 seconds after getting the strap off of his front flipper, Kenneth popped up and started rubbing and rolling around on the board next to me. I'm pretty sure a manatee's attention span is one second. I took the first digital camera I owned out on the water today. Had it gone in the water, I would not have been upset, but I did take a few pics with it. Hey, even I didn't get wet today. This is my view of the mangroves and canal as we came in for the day. I hope you enjoyed your Sunday too ๏ธ๐Ÿป 3w

vickihumphries One of my goals this year is to learn something new every three months. Since I'm an outdoors-kind-of girl and it's summer, my family, friends & I learned to SUP, standup paddleboarding. Last week we were in the river SUP'g and a mom and calf manatee swam next to my board for close to an hour. It was great. And even tho I'm not a gadgets-kind-of girl, now I want to buy a GoPro and learn to use it.

vickihumphries How To Stay In Love ~
When I go to work, I meet someone new. If I'm there, it's not a happy occasion ~ it's litigation. I met this really calm, happy couple. They've been married almost 60 years. Obviously I've got to ask the question: "How does anyone stay married to another for that long and still smile? Are you really happy?"
โ €
The lady said back to me, "Dear, you're asking the wrong question. What you really want to know is: How do you stay in love so you are happily married for 60 years?"
โ €
Of course that is the question.
โ €
And here's the answer she gave: "Don't lie. Don't cheat. Don't take it out on the people you live with. Take care of your health. Pursue your own interests." โ €
โ €

Then the Mister added: "Have sex with your partner every day." โ €

They both laughed and then kissed. True story.
