My Day Off

Yesterday I was off work and it was a picture perfect day here in Venice. Mr. Beachy took a break from his freelance work and I brought some food from Panera Bread (I crave their food) and we ate right under that little red umbrella.

I spent some time soaking up some sun and looking up at the beautiful palms.

The Hibiscus are in bloom and they are stunning. This is my new screen saver. Can you believe I took this on my cell phone?

The pool overlooks this lake that stretches down to our apartment. It's really low right now with the drought and they've turned the fountains off but it is always teaming with turtles and birds like heron, ibis, storks and cranes.

Do you know what kind of tree this is? I'd love to know. There is a carpet of yellow flowers under it. So pretty!

We spend as much time as we can at the beach or in the pool. The water was a little cool for swimming yesterday. Look at that sky!

Just wanted to give you a peek at my day off. I also spent some time shopping at Bealls (love) and strolling the shops on Venice Ave. on the island. So much fun!
It's back to work today though...
