Ciao! (with manatees)


Entrance to the park


Still (slowly) recovering from an unusually severe cold — health wise, 2014 hasn’t been my best year, thus far — and badly needing to get some work done, I stayed “home” today while my wife headed out with friends.  They went around Blue Spring State Park, near Lake Mary, north of Orlando, and looked at manatees.

In the evening, though, we all met my son and my daughter-in-law at Ciao Italia, a restaurant that we’ve enjoyed in the past.  It was, as before, very good.  But I’m so unhungry right  now that I simply can’t remember ever not feeling hungry.  So I have to wonder:  Why, again, did we go there?
