On tap for today is a 4 mile run in about an hour, and I’m really looking forward to it. Of course, I say that from the comfort of my nightgown, sipping a large mug of chai tea, so we’ll see how I feel in an hour and forty-five minutes.
My pre-run breakfast was my favorite happy meal:
I am six years old. Today’s rice cakes were hummus and guacamole delicacies (yay, good fats!) as well as a baby carrot nose. In case you thought it was a cheese doodle, or something. (I wish.) After the Pacman disaster of two days ago, it was nice to have a breakfast that smiled me.
Yesterday, we did something really special: A Dolphin Watching tour of Englewood!
Captain Bruce, a mom and daughter, and my family took the voyage into the Lemon Bay and out to the Gulf of Mexico for some prime dolphin and bird Spotting.
Mom and Ant are both big photographers, so they had a blast taking snaps of the Egrets, Pelicans, and of course, beautiful dolphins on the way.
While my photography skills are no where near as wonderful as these two, I did manage to get a few snaps of Stumpy, a 1,000 lb dolphin who had an altercation with a shark and lived to tell the tale – go Stumpy!
It was truly a beautiful day – 75 degrees, sunny, and clear, with just a few beautiful clouds making paintings in the sky.
Captain Bruce was wonderful – incredibly knowledgeable about the marine and aviary life of the area, and ready to answer any question with details and a sense of humor.
It was a perfect way to spend a Saturday.
After our cruise, we headed back home to chill and have dinner.
As our appetizer, we had crab claws that were so fresh and salty, it felt like they had just been caught (in fact, they probably had been!
And for dinner, dad made duck with apples and baked acorn squash.
Have a great rest of your day, friends – any fun runs planned, or Sunday festivities?
