Good morning Paper Peeps. Finally getting back into the swing of things here in the frozen North. Last night I sat down and went through pics from our vacay. We spent the holiday week at our Condo in Daytona Florida. I could really get used to life on the beach lol. I have selected some images I hope you will enjoy….
A few beach scenes.
Kenny and Jonathan went zip lining. They have a whole course there to challenge you…I am terrified of heights….so this was an activity just for the boysies.
My favorite place to visit..Marine Science Center where the have marine education, a sea turtle rehabilitation center and a bird sanctuary along with a beautiful boardwalk trail.
The turtle rehab facility is very cool….and you can observe all the treatments and therapies to administer to get the turtles healthy enough to release back to the wild.
Here is an exhibit to get my skin crawling….I am a magnet for anything stinging or biting….must be my sweet personality lol. This is what all mosquitoes look like to me!
When Kenny showed me this pic he took…I was very glad I didn’t go up….I wouldn’t have been able to get back down!
Another favorite thing to do is Pirate Cove Golf! We’ve done it every year since my oldest (now 20) was 6 weeks old.
The pier at night is magical with all the lights…and it 3.5 miles round trip…so we can walk it easily.
Before the hurricane a few years back there used to be a skyride you could take out over the pier. It was damaged too much and they took it down.
There was also a beautiful historic Spanish style mansion right next door to our condo building that Al Capone used to stay in. It was also damaged beyond repair : ( The seawall is still here to give you an idea of how ornate the building used to be….had the most gorgeous tile roof and balconies!
Man shall inherit the earth…..but you can see how quickly the sea will take back what man imposed on it.
You can take the boy away from the World of Warcraft…..but only for so long….he brought his with him lol.
In the evenings there was much chess and ping pong played….
Good bye beach…see ya next year!!!!! If I don’t freeze to death before then…..just in case you were wondering…we came back to -20 degree windchill. This is an extreme shock to my system : (
Okay thanks for sharing or vacation memories…wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
