From Florida

Holy cow, this connection is slow. The devastation from Hurricane Charley on Captiva Island is pretty amazing. We think we might be getting a whiff of red tide here, too, since the beaches are empty and we're both coughing a bit. The beaches are more likely deserted because the homes along the beach are deserted, too. Lots of blue tarps, plywood, and sounds of construction. Just think, this is six months after the storm.

I'll be home soon and I'll update with photos. I've done really well, shopping-wise. Got a charm for my bracelet and only one knitting project (a sweater for Tess, with Velvet Touch yarn, mmm...).

Off for dinner and sunset. 'Bye.
