Trying not to be bummed-3rd Day

Going to bed with the rain pounding down was one thing, but waking up to it "still" pouring down is another! I am trying very hard NOT to get bummed!  The water is now up to our front door and the "flooded road" sign has been placed at the end of our driveway. We are now scared to drive the rental van and take a chance on flooding it. This is starting to freak me out now...I went in the bedroom and cried. I HAVE to get outta this frame of mind!

Yep, that's our driveway, under water!

back up camera....water as far as the eye can see!

The kids and I did some vacation crafts, while we waited for the rain to let up. It eventually let up enough for us all to take a walk...more like a "wade", to the beach. We found a coconut that had washed up in the storm, along with some little seahorses!


Blake did a lot of writing and drawing comics

storms sure wash up some crazy stuff!

Seahorses are best found after a storm, stuck in seaweed...awww!

cleaning the shells that we found

The rain came again...we decided to chance driving in the flood water and headed out to do some fishing at Coquina Beach on Long Boat Key.  The roads were all flooded, especially the parking lots...turns out that some of the pot-holes were more like pot-ponds...woopsie van!  Coquina Beach was beautiful in the rain or the shine!

We hit a souvenir shop on the way back home to let the kids spend some of their vacation money. Tired and praying for better weather.
