Fall Is Here....

Yep.   Fall is here.   But not the fall that I am used to with the leaves changing color and crisp, sweater weather.   It is in the low 80's in Gulf Breeze and sunny.  Humidity is low so that is a blessing. 
Sandy called one afternoon and suggested I meet her at Disney World on Monday.   Well, let me think...........I am on my way with Mom.   We at lunch at the Kona Cafe in the Polynesian Resort and shopped at Disney Village.
Here is Mom, Sandy, and I in the Floridian.
 Dad did not go on this trip.   He was building a fence in the back yard - his latest project.  Now Kacey does not have to be on a leash to go outside.
These pictures are two of the many sand sculpture contest designs at Navarre Beach.  It is amazing what these people can do. 
 Last week we joined The Club II.  This is the outdoor swimming pool, there is an indoor pool, and the most impressive exercise equipment area that I have ever seen. 

This dolphin is Winter, from the movie DolphinTale.  Mom and I went to Clearwater to spend the night at Kathy and Terry Cox's.  They have a beautiful condo on Clearwater Beach.  We sat on the balcony for hours talking and watching the view of the Gulf of Mexico.   Earlier Kathy took Mom and I to see Winter.  Winter lost her tail when a baby and was nursed back to health.  She is beautiful and looks so happy.   The movie features Winter and her story.
 I saw this on Pinterest.  I don't know how many times I was working and my brain would take off to the beach.   And now I am here in person - not just in thought.

And I am back to where I started.  It is fall but hardly feels like fall.   Kathy's Mom sent her leaves from Hobart because Kathy was missing fall so much.  I will also miss the first snow fall and a white Christmas.  But it is beautiful here and I really can't complain.  So happy fall to all - no matter whether you are in the north or south!
