Happy New Year's from Siesta Key, Florida

Sunset  Happy New Year to everyone. :) It's almost 2009 - only a few more hours to go. A lot of my friends out there have probably already celebrated New Year's so a special "Happy New Year's" to all of them. We are in Siesta Key, Florida right now, enjoying the beautiful weather while it's snowing back home in Connecticut.

We arrived yesterday afternoon. Had some yummy lunch and then walked on the beach for about an hour and  half. The beach is just across the street from where we are staying so that's really convenient. In the evening we went to a tiki bar close by which was a lot of fun too. Super yummy Rum Runners. :)

Today we went to tour Selby Botanical Gardens and then had lunch at the Dry Dock Waterfront Grill. Had really great lobster bisque and pasta with grilled jumbo shrimp in a white wine and garlic sauce. It was fun to sit outside and watch the pelicans.

Tonight we have reservations at another restaurant here on Siesta Key where we will also be able to sit outside. Tomorrow we will probably just take it easy, maybe walk on the beach some more. This is definitely better than being at work and worrying about the snow and shoveling. Yay for vacations.

Mail update. Sent out a letter to Lotte/Denmark on Monday. Today letters went out to: Charles/TN, David/IN and Celia/MA. Received letters from/still owe replies to: Emilia/Finland and Alex/Germany.
