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 →

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 →


Here are some pics from my family vacation in Florida: It doesn’t get much better than this!

Beach pics

I just got my hands on some pics from Florida, wherein we buried my nephew in sand. It was fun. :-) The beer cans are a nice touch, no? :-)

June Beach Vacation in Florida

So, last month I went to Florida on our annual beach vacation with Doug’s family. I’m just going to lead with Doug’s pic of the gorgeous sunrise he didn’t wake me up for (bad Doug!) but at least he got pictures. Pretty no?

Our Disney Trip, Part 8

Ok, last Disney post! Our last day there, we didn’t have too much time, so we just hung out at Epcot. Which ended up being quite crowded, so we also didn’t get on any rides. (Even Spaceship Earth had lines!) But it was a gorgeous day so wandering around was fine too! We had to sadly check out of our … Continue Reading →

Our Disney trip, part 7
