Christmas in St. Pete

We left Lexington on the 23rd.  Apparently a lot of other folks were heading south too.  After 16.5 hours we finally made it to St Petersburg.  Here is the photo story of our vacation so far.

All loaded up 
We have Christmas colored kayaks!
I couldn't resist taking some pics of Karma during the drive.
Christmas Eve with Steve's Family

Enjoying Christmas morning on the beach
Christmas afternoon swim in the Gulf
1/2 mile swim in Gulf
First wetsuit hickey.  Salt water is abrasive...duh.
Christmas Night after watching sunset
Monday we went kayaking at Anna Maria Island
We kayaked with dolphins but sadly no pics
Silly sunset picture
Tuesday I ran a mile.  A whole mile non-stop.  Yes, I realize I could have speed walked this fast but I ran it.  Not completely pain free but not too bad either.  I was pretty darn happy!  
Blistering fast!
Dinner with Kara 
and Steve & Larry
Donna & Steve the morning we were leaving
Karma is sad that we are leaving St. Pete
 Now we are in North Fort Myers visiting my Aunt for a few days.  Why does vacation always fly by?

Hope y'all are have a great holiday season!!
