2003 SnowBirds!



SnowBirds in Florida.   Yes, every spring, we see these strange creatures in the Sunshine State.  This year, I happened to get some good pictures of some that I know!

Mom and Dad stopped by for a few days on their way to Largo.  Of course, I had to cook something.  Here they are enjoying (so they said) a Potato Basil Frittata that I whipped up for brunch.
We had to visit the beach--this is Florida, and we are famous for our beaches.  Here are Mom and Dad at Ponce Inlet Beach.
Now they are getting a bit more serious.  Mom and Dad soaking up a bit of that famous Florida sun at Ponce Inlet. 
Dad and I climbed to the top of the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse, quite the feat, since it's the tallest lighthouse I know of.  Here's Dad, enjoying the view.  New Smyrna beach is in the background in this picture looking to the north-northeast.
About a week later I journeyed to Largo, and we went to one of the most beautiful beaches in the US.... Caladesi Island, along with Uncle Frank and Aunt Steph.  Here we are getting situated.
Two sisters. Can you see the family resemblance.  Again at Caladesi Island, just north of Clearwater Beach, Florida.  Caladesi Island is one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida.
Mom and Dad at Caladesi Island. Yes, it was a bit windy that day.  But still a beautiful day at the beach.
Frank and Steph at Caladesi Island. Was a beautiful day to be at the beach!
We saw Dolphins frolicking in the water, both on our trip to Caladesi Island, and also on our tour of the Intracoastal Waterway the next day.

Mom on the pier at John's Pass, just south of Madeira Beach.
Mom and Dad on the boat.  We took a tour of the Intracoastal Waterway from John's Pass.
This is how the other half live, as viewed from the boat on our tour. 
I made Stuffed Grilled Pork Chops.  Yes, they were a hit!  Here's Mom and Dad and Rick, patiently enduring my picture taking while they really just want to dig in!
