Fishing Eye Candy

Now I really do not like that over-used term of Eye Candy but gosh I leave on Wednesday and I want a place to go and enjoy the cream of the crop of pictures of my time here.  Below are just a few.  I don't know if I'll go back and editorialize them so just know that they go in date order i believe.  We had a lovely Thanksgiving at Suncoast Grille in St Joe Beach and two are pics of the view we enjoyed there.  Some are of us at Toucans.  Lovely views, tacky tables, mediocre to nasty food, and ieah service. :(  And the fishing! oh I'm so all about the fishing!  I have some close ups of my fish, too numerous to count officially! 

Christmas Tree Lighting in Mexico Beach

Last night was the annual Christmas Tree Lighting in Mexico Beach at Sunset Park.  For your enjoyment I have put just a few cute pics below.  A couple talked to me briefly and he said, "cold enough" I told him "it only lacks snow to be a Norman Rockwell painting!"  it was a treat to do something so quaint and it could only have better if Neal had been there to hold my gloved hand.

Part of the festivities was the 2nd annual golf cart parade! I took only a couple of pics of the actual carts after the parade but I video-ed it on the camera and not sure if it will upload here or not.  As I mentioned, it was cold so one cart had a quilt laying in it, of course, I took that pic!

magical reversible holiday decorations!

storage here at the condo will be tricky if you want to decorate etc.  So i made my Christmas table runner have fall fabrics on the other side as seen in the pics below.  i have to sew the binding down by hand still but it is nearly finished and looks so nice on the table :) it was worth battling a 1/4" seam on the kenmore machine after being spoiled by my Viking Rose and flange foot all these years.
