While we were on the beach, we were able to catch up with Lloyd, and his many stories. He managed to catch out all of us (including Kath, John and Mary and 'Sybil') as well about a thief who had stolen a gold bar....it turned out to be an old photo of none other than Lloyd himself!
As usual, we've spent quite a bit of time in the Sea, as its so warm, and refreshing to get away from the heat of the beach. The Noodles and ring were popular, even with Kath!

As usual, we've been going round a number of shops, such as the HUGE, Target and Wal-Mart stores in the neighbourhood. We've also been having a few coffees around, and while sitting outside we spotted this fancy Chevy SSR in yellow at the bottom.

One morning during our morning walk, we bumped into a girl from the Mote Marine Aquarium who was examining a Turtle nest that hadn't hatched. Sadly the heavy rains in August seemed to have ruined it. However this one little fellow HAD survived, and while I helped count the number of eggs in the nest, Siv got to pick up the baby turtle to stop ants crawling all over him. A once in a lifetime experience for us.

We're on our way on holiday to Sarasota and Philadelphia! Here's Siv at Charlotte airport with a new pair of reading glasses. Under that is a view of the interior of the Helmsley Sandcastle, and finally a view of the 'armour' we'll be needing on the beach!

On Sunday, we relaxed in the garden, as it was a bright if slightly chilly morning. After breakfast we headed out to Valentine's Park for a walk, and a coffee and cake in the kitchen garden cafe. We came home for lunch (and Daisy got some too!) before sadly saying goodbye to them all.

Caroline and the girls visited us this weekend. On Saturday evening, we all had a meal indoors, and some cake to celebrate Siv, Francesca and Caroline's birthdays which are all coming up soon. Daisy was very pleased to get some leftover pasta!
