Meet #BeachBoundBob, our Floridian tour guide. Jen found him sans legs one day & started something by bringing him to work for office pranks. Our paraplegic poster hunk became a sensation. He came along with us & inspired many fantastic photoshoots (like this one!). I think you’ll come to love this quirky little guy as much as we do!
#BeachBoundBob gets handsy with my Po’ Boy!
The Florida sun is hot hot HOT. The rays beat down on you, only relenting when a quick rain rolls through. Y’know, some like it hot. I like it hot if it means I can jump into a big pool when I’ve had enough heat. Our condo at Coquina Key in St. Pete’s Beach promised just that. Within a gated community lies this upscale colorful marina. Our unit resided within walking distance of the yacht club & saltwater pool. Our backyard let out to a marina & we could smell the salty air of the ocean from our deck.
I spent every morning breathing in that air & gazing at the docked boats, making note of their names: Anna Molly (anybody else singing Incubus now?), Paradise, Adventure… What name would you give your boat? Greg & I would choose “Albatross” to not only pay homage to a fascinating poem (The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge) but also to our favorite television show & related movie.
Jen & I chose to spend our afternoons poolside by the sea, making the most of our time by sunbathing, reading, & taking dips in the tempting water. We were treated by a dolphin sighting even before the boys joined us!
We invited Jen’s college friend to join us at the yacht club that evening. After all, it was Taco Tuesday & they offered $2 margaritas! How can one resist?
Come back next Monday to learn what unusual treat we tried (& mostly enjoyed)!
