Discovering Florida's Natural Beauty
I guess I should have named this post, "We Paddleboard A Lot." The new year brought adventure, Florida style! When you think of FL, you think "beach." There's actually a flourishing eco tourism side of FL we never knew. We have started exploring every waterway, state park, and river we can find. The beauty is astonishing and the wildlife interesting. Contrary to our belief when we first set foot here, Florida is finding its way into our hearts.
🎵We're the three best paddlers that anyone can have🎵
Lovers Key State Park
Our goal is to be on the water 3-4 times per week. It really is good for the soul🙏
Rookery Bay Preserve. Best spot for headstands and finding Horse Conch.
Manatee Park. We hoped to see more manatees, but the ones we did see were swimming right under our boards! Love those big sea elephants!
Our favorite bike ride up to Lucky's Market/The Dollar Tree/Pollo Tropical.
Sunrise coffee dates on our boards = THE BEST!
Loading and unloading boards, the story of our lives.
Farmers Market Life
The girls love playing babies outside in our "yard."
100th day of 1st grade dressed as 100 year olds.
Surprise birthday party for Nonni.
One of those days we pick the kids up from school and head straight to the beach.
Aunt Mary comes to see us a lot👌
The water at Clam Pass is undeniably the best in Collier County! Plus, Graham's quite the birder these days.
When three kids share a bedroom, dad must build a private reading nook for our little book worm.
The requested birthday cake for our little 7 year old twin babies.
It's no joke, they really are besties.
