“I love Spring. And, we have kids so you can bet I’ll be on the ball field. Other than that, we are sitting on St. Joe Beach. Building sand castles and playing with our kids and their friends and their parents who are our friends.”

““I don’t really do the ‘Turkey Trot’ thing but I’m sure there are runs down here. Instead, we go fishing up the Intracoastal. It’s easy to jump on a charter or a few charters on different days...”

“I’m always taking in strays. We have a resident dolphin in the Bay. Wild dolphins live in pods. Even though this sounds bad, dolphins kick the big male dolphins that are ready for reproduction out of their existing pods to go join another pod. This behavior keeps the genes from bottlenecking.”
