He was spooked by kayakers

Has it been a week since last I blogged?
Well, Thursday it was softball in the morning, and another beautiful morning it was. Kerry did a little fishing in the afternoon and caught a little fish, a very little cow fish, but a fish nonetheless. Of course Thursday night was wing night at the Hurricane. It was just the two of us, but the wings were excellent as usual. It seemed exceptionally noisy at the Hurricane, I think because we sat in the room without carpet and all the chatter and noise echoed.
Friday we just relaxed and watched the ocean. It has been quite windy and the kite boarders and sailboats have been out in full force. We were entertained by a wee gecko, who seemed to be dreaming of growing up and going to sea. He stood on a little stick on the beach, looking out at the ocean.
Saturday was more of the same. Part of the reason we were so lazy was that I sprained my foot on Friday morning while riding my bicycle back from the bath house. It’s much better now, just colorful and a bit swollen.
at Long Key. Sorry, I just can't resist sunrises and sunsets.
Sunday was moving day. We left Long Key and drove 10 miles to Curry Hammock. As usual, when we got there our space was still occupied, so we waited in the day use area. Not a bad place to wait, as there was some kind of kite boarding event taking place. With the strong, gusty winds, we watched as the boarders raced past at unbelievable speeds, jumped high into the air, and did amazing flips and spins.
We dropped the camper at our site and headed to the ball field for another Sunday softball game. We had a small turnout, only 18 players. Several were playing in a golf tournament and we figured the high winds and usual high number of players kept some from coming.
Monday we moved to Bahia Honda SP, a beautiful place south of the Seven Mile Bridge. Not as much breezed here as at Long Key, but the natural beauty makes up for it. We drove down to Big Pine Key to get another water hose and stopped at the visitor center for the National Key Deer Refuge before coming back to camp. We rode our bicycles over to the bay side

of the park and watched the fish in the “aquarium,” a rock quarry open to the bay with wonderfully clear water and tropical fish.
Tuesday was softball, of course. We had 24, which makes it much easier to play. It was hot, humid and not near as breezy as it has been. We ran a few errands before returning to Bahia Honda.
This morning we went over to the underside of the US Highway 1 bridge. We sat in the shade of the bridge and I did some crochet while Kerry fished. Nothing but little bitty fish, but the breeze was heavenly. It is noisy with the cars and trucks passing overhead, but the grand views and cool temps made it worthwhile.
We hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day tomorrow. To our loved ones, we love you all.
