A beautiful pre-Christmas day. It was a perfect day for sailing but I don’t think a single sailboat was missing.  What a waste!

I know I’m rubbing it in. This was a perfect day. You could be here instead of under 5 feet of snow. I didn’t even have a jacket on but there was a cool breeze.

There’s still a few butterflies around.

Two weeks until Christmas and it was 75 degrees. I had errands to run and chores to do before family came into town so I stayed close to home and stopped by the Safety Harbor fishing pier in between errands. I hadn’t been there in months. There were still a few manatees hanging around the pier but it was too hard to get a picture. The sun was up high making the water looked dark. I would have just gotten their snout coming up for air.
