I wanted to go for a walk on the beach this afternoon. I parked my car and started to walk toward the water. I also started coughing like crazy and then sneezing. I am predicting that there will be a red tide warning in the next day or two.
I checked the air quality report on the library web site and it was listed as good. Well, I consider myself an early warning system for the presence of red tide. As soon as I left the beach the coughing and sneezing stopped completely.
My friend Diane is coming for a visit on Friday. I am very excited. I found a good place to rent a bicycle, I have tickets for a concert, there is a Greek festival in Sarasota, an orchid show and a quilt show in Venice, restaurants to explore, and I do hope we will get some beach time.
