PHOTO GALLERY | It's all smiles at Manatee Golf Course

Everyone I ran into Friday at the Manatee Golf Course seemed to have a big smile on their face, including Jim Weaver after practicing some putts.

“I’m a part-timer,” he said when I asked if he lived here. “Michigan is cold,” said Weaver, with a mock shiver.

As the sun beat down all around with only the sound of birds and golf balls hitting the green, I took a deep breath and thanked my lucky stars for a day of sunshine and happy people.
