Winding Up

Work 6p-8a--157.5#

We got back home from Florida late Saturday night--just in time for me to catch some z's before work Sunday morning. Yep, you read that right. They have me working some days this month which should be interesting.

Coming home was bittersweet. As we left our friends behind, they were heading to one of our favorite places to eat in Gainesville with some other cave diving friends from Australia which promised to be a rip-roaring time. I suppose I shouldn't begrudge it too much. We at least had a chance to visit with lots of friends and make lots of new friends while we were there.

On Thursday before we left, we decided to let Abbie take part in the vacation fun and take her on a little adventure, too. We took her to Ichetucknee Springs State Park to walk the trails there. You would have thought we had brought her with us to hike the Rockies. She thought she was the biggest girl ever, grinning from ear to ear.

This is the Ichetucknee River. You can't see it here, but the water is as clear as glass.
We saw no less than a dozen of these blasted things while we were walking the trails. Believe it or not, their bodies were the size of my thumb, and the webs were about 2 or 3 feet across just at head height. I still get goose bumps thinking about them. I HATE SPIDERS!
Would you have ever thought Florida would have fall color like this? That hickory tree looked like stained glass. Can't you tell the hubby and Abbie thought it was grand, too? LOL
Come on, Mom! They would turn around occasionally and make sure I was still there and not back on the trail taking more pictures. Notice Abbie's ears. Those are her "I mean business" ears. Here they mean she's ready to rock on down the trail, but if it's windy or raining, they mean she' s about to start freakin' out.
After our hike, I came home, showered and went for a massage. Then the hubby and our friend met me in town for dinner. While I was waiting on them, I decided to take some pics.
This is where we were going to eat dinner. It's one of our favorite places to eat down there.

This is the inside of that restaurant. The walls are cypress, and that is a handcrafted canoe hanging from the ceiling.
Look at that ceiling. It's a copper color.
