Sometimes you just have to stop and get away from all the day to day things that build up and see the big picture. We believe in vacations because it is a great time to regroup. So we did it. We went to Florida at the spur of the moment. Random trips are the best. We thought we might do it next year but no this was the right time for us.
We went to Cape Coral Florida where our parents have a home in the winter and visited with family while going to the beaches. We drove down through the south from Oklahoma. It took us two days as we went along the southern route a winter storm was getting ready to hit Oklahoma. We wanted to avoid all of that as much as possible.
When we got to Florida we decided to take the route along the Gulf and see some different towns. The Cypress trees were awesome and all the old towns along the route were enchanting.
We stayed all week and visited beaches in Boca Grande, Cape Coral, Bonita Springs and Fort Meyers. The temperature was in the 80’s all week and the beaches gorgeous but were a little crowded. We had a great time. I got to go out with my dad one morning on his boat in the cove where we saw dolphins and lots of birds. The water was calm and there was no wind. Perfect weather for boating.
On our way back we stopped at the Suwannee River State Park near Tallahassee. We fell in love with the live oak trees with the moss that hang over the river.
We would love to one day photograph a wedding in Florida.
