I went to Florida this past weekend with a friend—it wasn’t spur of the moment, but I guess I forgot to talk about it much before we went. I knew we were going, but somehow it snuck up on me (and I was totally NOT ready). Regardless…being there again cemented that I belong at the beach, or at least in a place that has no winter. (No, I would not miss the seasons)
I would, however, miss my little babe–who is still texting me, by the way. So for now, I’ll stay put here in NY.
Here are my (rank ordered) favorite places in Florida:
1. Marco Island
2. (tie) Naples and Delray Beach
3. (tie) Ft. Myers Beach and Miami
Of course, I didn’t take a camera, so I only have a couple phone pics. I’ll do better next time.
What do you like to do on vacation?
I’ll be honest—I snore at the thought of museums and “sightseeing” landmarks. I lived in Lexington MA, and never once paid any attention to the Battle Road (except that we once used it for an Air Force 5K) – which I’m pretty sure was part of the path of Paul Revere’s ride – and I drove by it everyday on my way to work. I’m also only vaguely aware of the history surrounding the Battle Green in Lexington (Battle of Lexington and Concord?). It’s just not my thing. I like the beach and looking at the ocean (I hate going in it). Ali and I sat on the beach (under an umbrella) and on our balcony for two days straight. We walked a lot too, but no sightseeing or activities…
Where are you going next?
I’m hoping to visit Santa Monica again soon (if my cousin is ever not traveling—right now she’s in France for work). I also want to go back to San Diego this year, and I think I’ll hit up Vancouver this winter.
And…if I can get caught up on my work, I’ll be back soon with an Ugi ball review and some other fun things.
