St Patrick's Day On The Beach

I found this cool beach leprechaun celebrating St Patrick's Day on the beach and I found some beach treasure too including some Shamrock green sea glass.

Green Sea Glass Treasures

My Pot Of Gold Was A Few Fun Seashells, Sea Glass and Beach Rocks

Everything is a pot of gold on the beach. The ocean that stretches to somewhere beyond somewhere else in the world. The sky above. The sand below. Sunny or cloudy, treasures at the seashore are waiting for you there every day. 

Happy St. Patrick's Day To All Of My Irish Friends and all of My Non Irish Friends too!

Love For Beach and America

Because this matters. Love for family. Love for America. Love for all the living things around us that is our responsibility to protect so generations from now our family and their families are blessed to share all the same Love.

Share The Love

From sea to shining sea. Share The Love.

Lion's Paw Seashells

I Love Lion's Paw Seashells. I think they are amazing. The shape, the colors, how wonderful beach nature is it's beyond imagination. Every time I find one of these awesome shells at the beach, it's like a gift from the sea!

I'll be back hoping for more cool finds, some days it's a bag full of treasures and some days it's just a beautiful walk on the beach.

Baby Sea Turtles In Florida

Baby sea turtles in Florida are so important there are local rules and laws to help these tiny, determined beautiful little turtles survive. Sea turtle nests are protected with barricades and tape marking out the area beach goers should stay away from so the baby eggs can survive without being disturbed. Lights out on the beach at night so sea turtles aren't frightened and disoriented when it's time to lay their eggs. Even the residents who live in houses on the beach are respectful about not using glaring lights at night that reflect through their windows.

The love and respect for sea turtles is a beautiful thing that unites people no matter their differences in politics, financial status, genders and careers. Everyone unites to care about the little sea turtles and try to help protect them.

I was lucky enough to be there when baby sea turtles celebrated their just born birthday and declared their independence on July 4th making their way determined and awesome to their new home in the sea.

Freshest Fish Cakes From The Sea

It's kind of crazy to me that I'm cooking up food that...... we catch ourselves! I wasn't catching fish then frying it up for dinner when I was living up North busy raising a family, a full time job and firefighting day and night. In fact that never even occurred to me. Firefighter kitchen cooking was by the bulk because everyone was eating and you never knew who would be there. Family cooking was planned both big dinners and whip them up quick dinners.

 Florida Fishing On The Beach Fish Cake Recipes

With all the prep I've done and all the cooking I've done, I never caught my own fish, fresh filleted it and then actually cooked and eaten it. It's kind of fun. And definitely very different. I love the part where you spend the day at the beach. Some of us fishing, some sea shell adventuring and of course, some playing in the waves.  This really was a simple home made fish cake recipe - you don't have to catch the fish yourself for this to work great on any fish from crab and shrimp to whiting and flounder

Advice For Anyone Moving To Florida

Here's some starter advice for anyone moving to Florida - lots of stuff we learned after we did move here. Lots of differences from living up North? Absolutely and yes, I would say all of these are true. 
Lots of spirit here in Florida and lots of straight talking fun in the Sunshine State.

Florida The Sunshine State Great Advice

1. If you don't like the weather in Florida, wait 15 minutes, it will change

2. If you do run your car into a ditch, don't panic. Four men in the cab of a four wheel drive with a 12-pack of beer and a tow chain will be along shortly. Don't try to help them. Just stay out of their way. This is what they live for.

3. Remember: "Y'all" is singular. "All y'all" is plural. "All y'all's" is plural possessive.

4. Get used to the phrase "It's not the heat, it's the humidity". And the collateral phrase "You call this hot? Wait'll August."

5. Don't tell us how you did it up there. Nobody cares.

6. If you think it's too hot, don't worry. It'll cool down-in December.

7. A Mercedes-Benz is not a status symbol, a Jeep, Chevy, Dodge, or Ford is.

8. If someone says they're "fixin" to do something, that doesn't mean anything's broken.

9. The value of a parking space is not determined by the distance to the door, but the availability of shade.

10. The coldest spot in all of Florida any time of year is Publix. Don't forget to bring your shopping sweater.

11. BBQ is a food group. It does NOT mean grilling burgers and hot dogs outdoors.

12. Yes, weddings, funerals, and divorces must take into account for Gators,Canes or Noles Football games. 

13. Do not tell Floridians you hate snakes, gators or sharks. They were here first apparently and don't deserve your hate. 

14. DO NOT honk your horn at us to be obnoxious, we will sit there until we die.

15. We pull over and stop for emergency vehicles to pass. 

16. We pull over for funeral processions, turn our music off and men remove hats or caps. Some people put their hand over their heart.

17. "Bless your Heart" is a nice way of saying you're an idiot.

18. Did I mention absolutely every body of water in Florida is assumed to have at least one alligator and/or crocodile just waiting for you to visit.

19. Did I mention If you don't like the weather in Florida, wait 15 minutes, it will change!
