Don't pick up Hitchhikers!


I had to get my brain centered today, to get myself going, but I finally got in a better frame of mind and was glad I went out.
We paddled for over 3 hours, and since it was high tide, we could paddle in and out of the coves further in. I just took my time and enjoyed being out. I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend.

"Didn't your mother tell you, to never pick up Hitchhikers!"



Why I never let Bill take pictures of me;)



We went into the village cove, lots of boats and the restaurant smells were making me hungry. I forgot my snacks at home. It was Bill's night for cooking, so we had fried shrimp, so now I am happy and full.

As for the time it takes to cook my green beans, I have no idea. Maybe because I cook them on low? But, the time in soaking and simmering, gives you the most delicious beans, just tender enough to eat, but not too soft to be mush.

Looks like a great outing (except for the crab ~ yikes). My granddaughter came across a dead one on the beach and it totally freaked her out!

That looks like a great time. I would really like to get into kayaking. I need to find the time to do it though. :(

It's good to hear you got out and had a great time. I like your hubby's pic of you:-) You look great! OMGosh, you're brave to get in those little kayaks and go. I'd be afraid of tipping all the time, and what's that thing hitchin' a ride? LOL.
