Greeting from Fla-dee-dah!

So I'm down at St. Augustine Beach with the family, a tradition dating back to my infancy. I'm told I actually took my first steps on the beach. It's basically a week to splash around in the ocean, float around in the pool, read books and take long naps. My tradition for the past decade and a half has been to sit out on the balcony and listen to David Sylvian's Gone To Earth on my headphones. Initially, I used a tape, then later a CD and now I've got the whole thing loaded up on my iPod. Time marches on.

Didn't manage to have a balcony session today, because it rained cats, dogs and occasional ferrets all afternoon. I napped and wrote and wound up rereading my current diary, which is coming to its last few pages. I have a fresh book waiting to be filled as soon as that one's done. My diary seems to be a little patchier in tracking the progress of my life since I discovered blogging. Figures.

I have dial-up, but I also found that there's a wireless connection that I can piggyback on when the winds are right. I'm going to try to post this using it.

Today I took pleasure in watching my niece Caroline splash about in the waves.

Today I learned that the Winn-Dixie down the street has its own liquor store.

Enjoy your vacation, it sounds very relaxing!
If you have any rain left, send it over here, we haven't had any in like 2 months.
