A Trip to Sebastian Inlet

Last Sunday we went on a beautiful outing to Sebastian Inlet. The Inlet  is approximately one hour south of Melbourne Florida. 
I know that I have been there fishing as a young girl but didn't remember going. We met up with old friends and it was an absolutely beautiful day! I highly recommend A visit.The campground was inexpensive and well-kept. The campgrounds name with Long Point Camp Ground. 

Sun fun

On Safari to Cypress Lake & Wild America

Yesterday Alice and I went on a field trip to Cypress Lake. We went to a fairly new park called Wild Florida ( It is located in Kennesaw Florida , south of St. Cloud.
We went on an airboat ride, ate lunch, and then we looked around at all the animals. It was a wonderful day. Florida is a beautiful place and yesterday I was reminded why we live here.

Beautiful Florida!

We wore ear protection to keep our ears safe from this small engine .....
9 foot gator. (Yes we were this close.)
Our beautiful girl.
This tortoise was very old lol

Take a moment, look at your view, learn to love where you live.
 It's a beautiful planet with endless potential!

On Safari to N. Ft. Meyers and St. Pete Beach

This week Alice and I went on a mini vacation. We headed out Monday to North Fort Meyers to visit family. The first evening we went out to dinner at "Joe's Crab Shack." It was a fun meal. We ate things we do not normally get. Fried calamari and shrimp. 

Beautiful sunset over the Ft. Meyers waterway.

The next day we visited a town called "Ave Maria." It is a town built around a catholic church. It was built by the owner of Dominos Pizza. There is a University there also. 

On Wednesday we decided to leave. We headed up the coast to the St. Pete beach area. We stopped before the sky bridge to check for a room. 

We were amazing to book a room at the beautiful "Don Cesar." It is our favorite place!!!
(I booked the room for 1/4 of the price. Last minute get aways are perfect for finding just the right deals.)

 The view from our room!
 Lunch View.
 Curried steam muscles with cashew butter sauce.
 (I could have drank the whole bowl!)

 Carrot cake with caramel and chocolate raspberry sauce.
 A very happy pair!

 Happy Momma......
