Day 5

and it's been wonderful so far! We've had some terrific weather, the island is beautiful, the house is very comfy and there is not much I can complain about! Today is a bit overcast and we need a break from the beach because mom's face is a bit swollen and Josh's calfs are a bit pink on the back even with a 45 on them so we are going to do some sight seeing. We've gone to two different beachs so far, South Beach and State Beach. South Beach had some serious waves! Josh was a bit scared and stayed right onthe shore and I didn't blame him. State Beach was the complete opposite and he was in the water all day! There were no man-o-war thank goodness after all the stuff we heard on the news but there were some regular jellyfish and a few crabs.
Let me tell you, this is a pricey place! We saw a sign for homemade Key Lime Pie and since I love Key Lime Pie we decided to get one. $22 later we had no pie, it was on reserve because they were sold out. Now I would not have paid that, I had already gone out to the car with the boys, since we were ordering one. My mom went ahead and paid for it even after hearing the price! This thing better be the best thing since sliced bread for that price!
Jake and I have been going on a bike ride each morning. We found a great 4 mile loop that follows a bike path for most of it which is terrific! We only have to ride on the road for a mile of it. I am happy to be exercising while I'm here since I have eaten homemade donuts and fudge so far! I try to be good and then something else yummy shows up! I am also glad Jake wants to ride with me since last year I had to walk alone last year!
So I'm off to get ready for our ride! Have a great day/week in case I don't update for awhile again!

$22 pie! yikes! It better be fabulous is right! I'm so glad you're having such a great time on vacation. It sounds absolutely beautiful. Just so you know...when you're on vacation you get to eat all the yummy stuff you want. The exercise is just an optional bonus. (((hugs to you)))
