View From Purcell, Oklahoma: Vacation Time = Beach time for me

Vacation Time = Beach time for me

Just returned from our first vacation (without kids or that wasn’t a working vacation), since our Honeymoon to Jamaica 14 years ago.



Spent a few days on the beach in Florida. Water was warm, sun was hot and I discovered I could be a beach bum! Beautiful sunsets!


I would have loved to have gone scuba diving, but settled for an afternoon of snorkeling. I haven’t been scuba diving since our Jamaica vacation. The snorkeling was so-so, the colors weren’t very vibrant where we went. Much prettier to hit 60-80’ on a dive, but at least I got to goof around in the ocean some more.







Walking in the surf schools of stingrays would swim past and you could even see a few crabs. Stepped on a crab and it pinched my foot….bit of a shock and it hurt too!



The last day we went to Tropicana field to watch the Texas Rangers play the Tampa Rays. We had great seats just behind 3rd base. First time I have been in a domed stadium. They keep the temperature at 72 degrees! My wife and the ladies surrounding us were complaining about how cold it was and they should have brought jackets! I guess when it is 90+ degrees outside and then having a cold wind blowing on you at all times was a little chilly. Rangers won the game!

We met Texas Ranger Mike Napoli’s father at the hotel while waiting for the shuttle. It was funny. Napoli's family couldn’t believe my wife was the one who wanted to go to the game and I was the one more interested in the beach. Napoli’s parents live in Florida, so they were getting to see him play at their “local” field.

I love the sunset picture too!    And what is more fun that jelling on the beach!  I miss my days of living in Southern California...nearly every day off was spent down at the beach! LOL
