What a Weekend!

You know - Florida gets knocked a lot for a lot of different reasons, but I don't think anyone in their right mind could say that they would want to be anywhere else when we're having weather like we are right now. For that very reason, we got out and spent the weekend in the great outdoors, and what a great weekend it was. Sat. morning TJ and I went down to Las Olas with some friends to an art fest and spent the beautiful morning perusing mildly interesting exhibits. We got a great little lunch at this deli on Las Olas and strolled through the local neighborhoods looking at all of the unique houses. It was really fun.

Kind of on a bit of a whim, we headed up to Jupiter around 5 to Jonathon Corbitt State Park to go camping. We bought an awesome new tent and were pretty stoked to get it up and give it a try. Now this place is for REAL camping - no electricity, no bathrooms, no lights - just you, the outdoors, and the alligators. Yep, the alligators. Almost all of sites sit on water and we spent all night listening to the alligators grunt and finding their little red eyes looking at us with the mag light. We had one little near run-in with a little guy, but thanks to TJ and his expert pine cone throwing ability, we effectively scared him off. We also saw an owl, an otter, a turtle, tons of birds, and tons of bird-size mosquitos. It was just beautiful.

On the way out the next morning, we called up our buddy Steve, just to find that he and some other friends were headed to Peanut island with their boat. We met up with them and spent the remainder of the day lounging around on the boat and in the water on the sandbar just off of the island. The weather was perfect, the company was great, and I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend a Sunday. Needless to say, I'm not in a huge rush to get on with my work week. Ahhh, viva la weekend.
