Nature Up Close...

This is what Bruce woke up to this morning when he let Harley out! This big guy was on the roof of the house right next door...and he was huge! At least as tall as Isabella! Pretty cool huh? At first it looked like a stork...which had me a litttttle nervous! But nope...it's a pelican! There are so many cool birds and critters around our lake that it really feels like we live in some kind of nature preserve!



Looks like there's a few more weather things going on in the Atlantic, which means we'll probably have another weekend of rain (and moving everything in from the lanai...again!) so today, Rade, Colleen and I headed to the beach...just in case! August is definitely the hottest month in Florida and even I, sun lover extraordinaire, had to move to the shade! I love the fact that I can get the kids on the bus and head to the beach for a few hours!

I have lived in FL for about 3 yrs now I am still shocked to see those big crane like birds out walking around in the yard. So funny that your dog's name is Harley too . I just love that name, it totally works for big and small dogs. thanks for visiting my blog!

Wow! That sounds so nice Steph...to put the kids on the bus and head to the beach!!

I'm working on the Women's Retreat and saw your name on the list. I can't wait to meet you in person!!

Thanks so much for visiting! And thanks for laughing at my silliness. When I did the first doggie adventure post I figured everyone would think I was a big dope. But people were so nice...and now Crumpet & Ozzie think they're big stars...they'll be no stopping them now! I'm glad your son enjoyed it too...I love it when I can make people smile without having to fall down first!
Have a spectacular tomorrow!

I can't imagine waking up to something like that! That's so amazing. I want so badly to go to the beach. Alas, not this year. I hope you don't get too bad of weather!
