A carload of Hipps were supposed to leave on Thursday after Christmas, but Wednesday was cold and rainy, so we had to wait to do our boat day on Thursday, and they were able to change their plans to stay an extra day and boat with us. Unfortunately, by then our fever virus had already taken down Heather, so she and Jonathan stayed back and rested.
It was a cool day- for Tampa!- but so beautiful, sunny and clear, so once you put on an extra layer it was perfect for being out on the water! We boated over to Beer Can Island, last seen at last year's Gasparilla, and most of us dinghied ashore to explore, while Grammie graciously stayed on the boat with napping Rosemary. We replenished our shell collection- and my beach pictures collection! ;)
