It is so scary to think that Dom and I have less than 2 weeks left in Florida, so this past weekend we really tried to have the best time and squeeze every bit of sunshine out of every minute we could. For the Fourth, two of Dom's fraternity brothers who live in Ft Lauderdale and Miami came up (with a puppy!) for some golf, grilling, and fireworks!
Friday was a bit painful, as this little lady decided that doing shots of Jack Daniels was a good idea on a school night. Poor life decision...so let's just skip to the weekend!
Saturday, we packed the beach bag and assumed our usual beach bum positions.
That night I did my favorite summer pastime, sipping on a crisp refreshing cocktail, while Dom did his favorite summer pastime, grilling a delicious (and healthy) dinner!
It's a good thing we got so much rest, because Sunday we decided (okay, so Dom decided and I finally agreed) to go paddle boarding!
We started by going against the current, through the channel where all the boats/yachts were passing by, and I may or may not have cried that I was about to die.
After what felt like ages we made it to Peanut Island, were tons and tons of boats, jet skis, and paddle boarders dock on the sandbar and partayyy.
We didn't bring out phones so they wouldn't get soaked, but this is what it looks like. Yesterday was only a little calmer than when this picture was taken!
Definitely worth the ride out there!
After getting more sun than two people ever should, we hopped back on our boards and rode back!
This time, we just stood up and let the waves bring us in. I liked that direction much better.
We finished off the day with sushi, a walk around our neighborhood, and a little Anthony Bourdain. I could not have asked for a better almost last weekend in Florida!
