what a weekend! we’re back, super tan and super tired. dlb and I went up to Crystal River to spend the weekend with my grandparents. amidst our packing and excitement and anxieties about the move, we needed a little va-cay to clear our heads.
during our little vacation, we not only had the chance to relax, but we also had the thrill of taking a scalloping adventure! this morning, we woke up real early, and set out to hunt for scallops. suited up with our mask, snorkel, and fins, we dove into the water and the scalloping hunt began. if your not familiar with “scalloping”, basically these little guys hide in the turtle grass in the Gulf water, and you can spot them by their tiny, almost creepy, bright blue eyes. pretty soon, we dragged in bags full of these little shellfish, providing us with a feast for days.
relaxing in Crystal River was just what we needed. between the refreshing swim in the pool, grilled cheese sandwiches on cuban bread, diving for scallops, and good conversation and laughs, the weekend was just right.
