We had a relaxing July 4th weekend, at our current rental home in Port Charlotte, FL.
We've been here for a month already, and have a few more months here until Cory's job sends us on to his next travel location.
Our home is located on a canal, and has the most glorious sunsets. So this July 4th we decided to invite a friend over for a picnic in the lanai. We had bratwursts from the local German butcher, grilled asparagus, cherry tomato salad, blueberries, watermelon and we sauteed some pepper and onions for relish. It was delish!
Buster, thought the bird sculpture was real, so he gatecrashed our lunch to inspect. Ha ha.
Later in the evening we went to watch the fireworks on Port Charlotte harbor. It was fun watching the display over the bridge.
But, I digress...There are some really interesting people these days.
The rest of the weekend we did some wedding shopping, shared some flatbreads at Carrabas, watched some Hallmark movies, did some yoga and spent a day at Venice beach. Happy birthday America! From the girl who spent her childhood in the heart of the English Countryside.
