Les and I just came back from a fun, family filled weekend in Clearwater, Florida. My parents came and horse-sat for us to allow for this opportunity (thanks mom and dad!)
Our first stop was cousin Shelly’s barn to meet the newest addition to her family – a Tennessee Walker named Sinister (but he’s really quite a sweetheart). We messed with him a bit, tried on his new winter blanket and youth saddle (the blanket was much more successful than the saddle).
Then Les found his next horsey companion:
From there we went to the beach where we had happy hour and then walked to John’s Pass for pizza, a stroll down the boardwalk, and finished it up with frozen custard. It gave me an idea and a fabulous sample of night life for the adult book that’s still in the planning stages in my mind!
Sunday morning the entire Narum clan (Aunt Mary and cousins Shelly, Doug, Jessie and little Rachael) joined us at the Floridana show – the reason we chose this weekend to visit. While it was great seeing all of the Florida collectibles and the insane prices some dealers were asking, 8-year-old Rachael said it best, “It’s like being in your house.” A comment that Les took with great pride!
After enjoying a wonderful lunch and family company in downtown St. Petersburg, we stopped by this awesome antique store before heading 3+ hours home.
It was a fabulous weekend…I just wish I would have taken Monday off to get some sleep!
