Out of Alaska to Florida

My folks arrived in Florida on Saturday, January 12, 2013.  After weeks of being more or less shut in by the weather, they started enjoying swimming in the outdoor pool,
and dipping their feet in the Gulf of Mexico.
Dick and I decided to go snorkeling,
But even though the water was pretty warm, we couldn't see a thing because the waves stirred up so much sand.
Meanwhile, Ron looked for treasure using his metal detector.  He did find one earring and tons of pop tops.
 Dick doesn't like snakes - so the many stuffed snakes at the Linger Lodge made him anxious.
We did have a nice walk in the sun there.
Dick has worked an entire jigsaw puzzle in his spare time.
We're going out tomorrow to see the Lipizzaner training sessions, then on to our homes in Georgia on Sunday.
