Last Day In Florida :-(

Friday, August 26, 2011

Unfortunately this is our LAST day in Florida - ugh!  It's sad that we have to leave already!! But we have had such a wonderful time here.  Today we drove to Longboat Key, where Mom used to spend her summers with Grandma and Grandpa when she was my age.

 Longboat Key.  It was also a beautiful beach - the waves were quite rough, I'm assuming because of the hurricane?  Anyway it was nice!

This is the house right on the beach that Grandma and Grandpa used to own!  Isn't it gorgeous?  Anyway, the beach backs right up to it and Mom says she spent many summers there.  It was SO nice....can you imagine having the beach right in your backyard??!!

 A group shot - except for me, of course.  The only pictures of me were awful so you'll just have to be content with these.  :-)

 Beach scenery is so much different than desert scenery - you know, I'm just about to pack up and move here!!  Anyplace where I can walk barefoot and wade in 88* water is so much nicer than rattlesnakes, dirt, and tumbleweeds!!!  But.  Home sweet home is just around the corner and we'll be back in the desert tomorrow......thankfully right now is a very pretty time of the year for where we live so it's actually pretty nice right now.  :-)

Palm trees are just gorgeous, don't you think??!! 

Mom and I leave here early tomorrow morning and have a full day of flying, so please pray that all goes well.  I'm armed with granola bars and Wheat Thins, plus my ipod full of Adventures in Odysseys as well as a good book, so I think I'm set for a looooong day of flying.  :-)

Dear Rachel,

Loved your blog! The sand and sea reminds me of the many visits I've had as a younger man to FL with your mother. You likely don't remember them, but I sure do. Great family memories for me.
