Today, Willow got to watch sunset at Clearwater Beach. We got there about an hour before sunset, walked along the beach and Pier 60 taking photos and then watched the sunset from the vantage point out over the water from the pier. It's been miserable and damp and cold and rainy all week so today's weather was clear skies and warm. Perfect day to show off some of this area's most famous assets: our beaches! Grin


Walking down the beach towards pier 60.


Willow thought the seaweed toupee was funny.


Watching the sun set into the Gulf of Mexico.

I think Apti is the only one happy about the snow today. Unfortunately, the Bellydance event Saturday has been cancelled because not only are we supposed to get 10" of snow today, more is expected Friday/Saturday!  I took a "snow day" off work because I didn't want to have to drive in this, and we're just snuggled in (until it's time to start shoveling...)

No snow over here, but AD & Adi had a nice evening outing at University of Edinburgh, who hosted the "Terracotta Warriors Lanterns" for Chinese New Year. It was a very impressive exhibition. The "Hobbits" and the Poses loved those lanterns! Smiley




Ok... not the best shot of the poses, but of the Warriors at least. Wink

I've been so busy lately, but don't worry! Poppy and I are still alive, and not only that my surprise will 99% be going ahead. It will hopefully make up for all the lack of communication from me.

On the scrapbook front I'm rather pleased with myself. I found some small notepads that are shaped like foldable miniature airmail envelopes. I've modified them to hold little notes about the photographs. I'm quite pleased with my idea, it looks like my Little Visitor wrote them for her family.

That link shows a picture of the backs of the envelopes.

And now for some photographs! We went to a nice Chinese New Year festival which was rather hot weather wise but worth going to for the sights. Poppy once again wore the red dress because it was Chinese New Year, and red or gold seemed a must to wear!


Here we are looking at some 'Authentic Bird's Nests. For making birds nest soup." I still don't know what they are made from.


I have only ever seen these at this festival. It's a whole potato, peeled and cut into a spiral shape. The spiral curl is put on a stick and then deep fried, sometimes with a coating. Lots of stalls sell them at this festival every year. The other food might change but this is a constant. It's a bit like chips with a difference.


Here we met the old Dragon used in the traditional parade around the shops, the two used each year (A long one and a two man golden one) have been around for ages. This is the longer one. He was a bit big for Poppy so we didn't go too close, but she liked all the colours of his skin.


Here is a smaller sized Dragon that Poppy found. She thought he looked much nicer.


After we got home from the Festival we watched a dvd I bought there: The original Pokemon movie. I remember seeing that as a child and had to get it. It wasn't too scary for Poppy so she watched it as well.

I'm so jealous of all the pictures with snow.  I snowed a bit earlier today, but didn't stick. Sad  I've ordered a new card reader for my desktop and I'll have pics once it comes in!

So Florida is weird. We don't have normal seasons like everyone else. Like, we skip over Autumn entirely. Leaves don't change colors here and we don't have the kind of trees that drop their leaves in Fall either.

BUT...the Southern Oaks here shed their leaves in February! So this is the time of year when we have tons of little oaks leaves all over the darn place.

 

It's only just started. It will get MUCH worse. Then, after the leaves had fallen, the oaks will start their yearly Death by Pollen tradition and everyone will get stuffy noses and red/itchy eyes for awhile. Heh. So this is our combination Autumn/Spring sorta season unique to Florida!

Aww, Anana at another library... I should get video of Georgie with our book drop, simply because it TALKS to you. (It reminds you to put items in one at a time because we have an Automated Materials Handling system... sometime soon, I'll get video of Georgie with that!!!)
