Our son, Bill, arrived this afternoon for an overnight visit. It was so good to see him again. We spent a couple of hours just relaxing and visiting.  Then he took us to the grocery store for some major provisioning. We came back, had a late docktail and then cooked steaks on the grill. Add red wine, asparagus, roasted potatoes, salad, homemade pound cake and ice cream, and we had a good meal.  After dinner we did some face time with our 1½ yr. old grandson, Will. He is all motion and we loved seeing him in action!

We had an unexpected visitor to the boat this morning – a manatee!  We see manatee caution signs all the time but have only seen them once in Tarpon Springs.

We will drive to the beach tomorrow with Bill before he has to return to Orlando and catch his flight back to Denver.
