A Stormy and Rainy Weekend

Hello everyone,

Well here it is already Sunday evening and after a busy weekend of checking out yet another Farmers Market, shops along St. Andrews Bay, and trying out a new Mexican Restaurant I'm plum tuckered out!  Although today, I did manage to whip a pineapple upside down cake and some potato salad with (new) red potatoes from the Farmers Market.

It has stormed here since Friday night and I mean storm!!  From about 1:30 a.m. in the morning until about 5:30 a.m. we had thunder and lightening almost like a light show!  It poured and the rain blew.  Saturday the red flags were out which meant no swimming in the Gulf because of the tides and waves.  We had rain squalls all day off and on and into Saturday night and still on Sunday throughout the day.  We managed to hit the Farmers Market between rain drops and the shops along the way while we had a brief respite and the sun peeked through but not for long.

Here are a few of the pics from Saturday.  I hope you enjoy them.

The Farmers Market at Captain Anderson's Pier.  I think the rain kept a lot of the vendors and people away Saturday but the few vendors that were there had plenty of fresh produce.

Another one.
Because of the bad weather most of the deep sea fishing boats were in their slips at the Marina.
This little (or big) guy was out looking for something?
Here he is again looking for something...Can you guess what it is?
I think he thought he would find his lunch here?  LOL
We ended the day at the beach to check out an area for taking the grandkids too when they come in late August for a visit.  This is how the water looked Saturday afternoon.

A rainy and cloudy day.

Well, thats it for today.  I hope everyone had a nice weekend and hopefully you didn't have to deal with rain and storms too. :-)
