Florida Vacation Day Two

On Friday, we went to Anna Maria Island. This is the marina where million dollar boats are docked. That big yacht to my left? That's mine. I claimed it. I couldn't find the keys though.
Here's mom and Helena taking a nice picture since the last one they were acting so silly, and Helena's daughter wanted a proper photo of the two of them. Rotten Ralph's is the restaurant at the marina.
Mom said I wasn't allowed to look at the menu, that I would be eating Rotten Au Gratin. Since I always listen to my mom (haha) I let her order for me. It was crab and shrimp covered in cheeses and baked in a shallow dish. It was one of the most amazing meals I've ever eaten. My diet is trashed.
Here's our photo shoot in front of the Historic Pier on Anna Maria Island. The weather has cooperated wonderfully and the salty-smelling sea breeze was sweetly cool when we were there. We did get some rain Friday evening, but we had already settled back in at her house. It was so relaxing to stretch out in the recliner with a cup of coffee and my laptop, with the rain dancing on the roof.
