We’re back! One has to wonder where the year has gone. The weather this time around has been ideal but we are both saddened by all the damage. It is obvious most everywhere and quite noticeable at Ding Darling Refuge. Sorry to see the loss of Australian Pines along Periwinkle heavens! Some were over 4′ at the base! As usual we dined at one of our favorite haunts The Jacaranda, what an absolutely superb meal we had on The Patio. Kari was able to enjoy her sunrises with coffee in hand and the short stroll to the beach. No big rise apartment for her. Hopefully we’ll be back another time.
