New Smyrna Beach – June 2018 – part 2

Onwards to Day 2 at the Beach! Doug and I had company for our morning walk, this year, which was nice. Real bird: Pokemon bird: Then it was time to get changed for the pool! Oh my gosh, she is so tiny here. We bought her this huge pool float to keep her shaded, which I think she liked. Then … Continue Reading →


New Smyrna Beach – June 2018, part 1

Our Florida family vacation in June was pretty great this year – instead of dealing with loss, we were able to bring Elena there, to one of our favorite beaches, and just enjoy being. Having a baby at the beach was definitely not as relaxing as usual, and I barely read (I usually finish a ton of books there), but … Continue Reading →


New Smyrna Beach 2017

Our yearly family Florida vacation took place in August this year! And though we had a bad time here two years ago, we were returning successfully pregnant. We were a little nervous but I was pretty far along, so we hoped all would be well and we’d have a good family vacation this time. It did not start well. We … Continue Reading →

Universal Studios

On our last day in Florida last April, we went to Universal, mostly to see Diagonalley. I was pregnant and couldn’t go on any of the rides, but we bought an interactive wand and had fun just exploring and looking for Easter eggs, of which there are many! Before we got to Diagonalley (which was nicely shaded and totally bearable … Continue Reading →


Florida, August Family Vacay

Now on to the family vacation in Florida! We met most of the family at Dixie Crossroads in Titusville. Corn balls! They had the royal red shrimp in stock and they are always so amazing. It was no exception this time. My niece got engaged – she told some of us by text but wanted to surprise her grandparents. :-) … Continue Reading →


A Disney evening

This was not our best visit to Disney. We were in Florida for the annual family vacation and thought we’d fly in, head to Disney for the afternoon/evening before heading out to the beach. This was supposed to be a bit of a treat since we’d had a rough start to our year. Doug bought the tickets online, linked what … Continue Reading →


Florida – New Smyrna Beach

Here is a good parts version of the beach back in June. I do love staying at this condo. You can’t beat its proximity to the beach: Sunrise! Doug got a nice shot: We did find this sea urchin! One of our big lunches at my fav dive restaurant (which has the best seafood), JB’s Fishcamp. We sat with Doug’s … Continue Reading →


Florida – Boma and Old Town Kissimmee

Here post 1 of our Florida vacation. It started out good, but kind of went downhill due to health issues. But let’s focus on the positive, shall we? We started out flying over the Chesapeake, which I always like. Here’s Kent Island and the Bay Bridge: Annapolis. The Naval Academy Stadium is at top right. We had dinner reservations at … Continue Reading →

And the dessert wontons: We kind of like the bird show at Animal Kingdom: Safari: We manged to go on Everest 3 times total I believe. Single rider twice, … Continue Reading →

The beach was about as perfect as it has ever been this year. I love New Smyrna Beach – it is definitely is one of my happy places. It wasn’t great weather the day we got there, but was still beautiful. And then the rest of the week was gorgeous. The ocean was really blue, which the Atlantic generally isn’t, … Continue Reading →
