We were able to see the planets after sunset last night--Venus and Jupiter in the western sky and Mars, looking quite red in the east. I had just started reading a book that has been on my list for a very long time--The Glass Castle by Jeannette Wall--and was at the part where her father gave her Venus for a Christmas present.
We made another trip to Myakka State Park today. Mike's 19 year old grandson is visiting so we wanted to show him some alligators. He was lucky and found a really big shark's tooth at the beach on Monday. He had French fries for lunch. That's about it for spring break excitement here in Venice, but at least he can truthfully say that he was in Florida for spring break.
