After eating out at a local and cheap Vietnamese restaurant (I never had Vietnamese food before), we drove out to Reese Park, in Port Richey. The water was at low tide, so there were sandbars and you could walk out onto wet sand where the water had been at high tide earlier. The water was nearly still. The pictures just don’t do the incredible view justice at all. I was amazed by its beauty. I felt so serene and calm there, that it’s hard to believe many of the most violent hurricanes in the western hemisphere get their start right here over this body of water. We are almost at the peak of hurricane season, but according to the weather forecasts, it doesn’t look like anything’s developing out over the Gulf.
After the sun set, we went out to Coldstone Creamery (I had a $10 gift card) and then back to the apartment complex for a lovely evening swim in the pool.
