It's time to pull in the Triceratops snow measuring device for another year. We did get measurable snow this year but not much. 2 storms each about 6 inches. Spring is here, the weather is actually getting warmer and it is getting time to take the cover off the boat. We will be putting it in the first week of June. The water is still too cold in May to swim or sail and we usually get a bad storm around the middle of the month. I am working for the UPS store for 1 more week while the new owner in in training in San Diego. I will be really done on April 11. Need to find another part time job to generate some extra funds for beer making and travel during retirement. I am also running for a position on the Open Space Acquisition Committee here in Marion. This will be the first town committee that I will actually be elected to. All the others have been appointed positions.
We were in Florida from March 7 to 17 visiting Tim. Sean & Nicole found us a Time Share Unit in Pompano Beach where we stayed for 7 days and spent the other days in Tim's Condo. Did some beaching, geocaching and fishing. Picture above is of Ellen & I at the South Boca Raton Beach Webcam Geocache, communicating with Tim on whether or not our picture had been taken. Had a great time at the St. Patrick's Day parade in Del ray. The weather was beautiful, nice and warm. It was tough to come back home to the cold weather.
When we were geocaching we went to this park where they do cable Water skiing. Really neat. The cable runs in a large oval and the skiers can do jumps. The lake was very shallow because they were able to walk ashore when they fell.
