Warm water, hungry fishes

I actually took a break yesterday, left the computer, and went to the beach! It was a much needed mini-vacation that helped me remember how much better I feel when I get out into nature.

The water at Siesta Key was a gorgeous clear turquoise. Nothing like the muddy brown beaches on the west coast of Florida. The water stayed shallow far out into the ocean and I realized after sitting a few minutes that I was being nibbled all over by fish. I looked more closeley and realized I was surrounded by schools of all different fish!

The water reminded me of my trip to the US Virgin Islands in 2005 and makes me want to travel again all the more. For now though, I think more trips to Siesta Key are in order :)
