Florida Day 5

Sun, sun and more sun!

And books. I read two books this weeks: Eat, Pray, Live by Elizabeth Gilbert and Grace (Eventually) by Anne Lamott.

Josie started several books too but couldn't get situated on one. Here we are on the beach...

But the most exciting moment of the day came when a jellyfish washed up on the sand!

The water here is Florida is EMERALD GREEN. So green and so beautiful. And juxtaposed with the sky it is just amazing...

Josie and her friends are staying here one more day and I'm quite jealous. If there's a church opening here... Baptist, Methodist, Hindu... I'm gonna apply. And since lot of land here is only going for 1.25 million, I'd say it's a go. While that one and a quarter doesn't include the cost of building a house, it seems quite reasonable. Sigh. Further evidence of the insane divide between the rich and... well... everyone else. Who can afford that?

But it is beautiful and while I miss the eclectic vibe that is Austin, TX, there's not much to complain about down here.

What a great birthday week.

I think it is "Eat, pray, love" and i was going to recommend it to you. I picked it up in the airport on the way home and kept thinking that you would dig it. glad you found it.
