Florida Favorites - Part Two
Our trip was very nature-oriented. I keep a bird watching list, so I was sure to bring a book to identify birds while we were there.  (Go ahead, you can call me a nerd.) We had lots of fun beach combing and looking for the perfect shell (my favorite is pictured below.)  My only complaint was the mosquitoes in the Everglades.  I knew they would be bad, and they love me, but I ended up with three different repellents on me during that kayaking trip.  Ugh.  I kept running into the mangrove roots, because I was too busy swatting mosquitoes away. Ha!

Florida Favorites - Part One
My husband and I just got back from a two week trip to Florida last week.  We drove about 3600 miles in total, filled up our gas tank 11 times, and bought 6 bags of ice for our cooler.  When we travel, we don't like to stay in one place.  We wanted to see as much as we could, so we stayed 7 different places (some originally planned, some not) and not including the overnight stops on our drive to Florida and then back to Missouri.  Our stays varied from camping to bed & breakfasts.  We played on the beach, hung out with alligators in the Everglades, biked a few trails, and learned about rockets.  It was a good trip.  I thought I'd share some of my favorite photos over the next week or so.

Check out Part Two and Part Three too!
