Well, my post about the rest of our holiday spent in Florida has been hideously delayed, I'm just now getting over my post vacation blues. Funny enough I found about our next trip whilst we were in Florida so mental planning has begun for that. Florida was to be expected, sunny of course, a little kooky, and water/beaches everywhere. At one point we were in the car on a normal highway and my boyfriend saw an alligator (I didn't see it, the closest I got was a van selling "gator" by the road) in a little overgrown area off the road, "It's like Wild Kingdom over there" he said; I missed it dammit, this is why one needs a driver. We had a lot of good food, ran into a surprise (at least it was a surprise to us) parade, did some shopping, drank, danced, saw dolphins, visited friends, and I somehow left the sunny state with not even the faintest of tans - it is a talent. So no more talking, I'm just going to post pictures of the beach, I know that's what everyone wants to see so onto the pictures of 5 different sizes.

There was also some tasty food...

*drool* What? Oh, I got lost in food porn for a minute. There was also some pretty rad-tastic places.

As you might be able to tell from the pictures, we had a fabulous time in Florida. We got to visit with our friend Row and her kids and meet her new boyfriend and his lovely mom - not to mention their clan of animals. It was incredibly cute when I saw their cat PJ, who I always doted on when Row was here, and he perked up remembering my face/voice - it was so precious.

On our way home from Florida we stopped by Orlando and Charleston, South Carolina which was even prettier than I remember it being so that is coming up in my next vacation entry.

I miss you Ocean, why I didn't just run into your luscious waves is beyond me.

It was, I miss it, it was such good times. Thank you, I tried to take as many as I could.

It wasn't terribly cold the days I went to the beach, the one day (in the first few pictures) started off cold and gloomy but it quickly turned beautiful. The burgers were sooo good down there, this one had macaroni and cheese on it - it was sooo good!

I love that gloomy beach picture! That food does looks great. I miss the beach. I go down to Gulf Shores with my friend and his family every year and I love it. Last year, I caught like 6 jellyfish. I let them go though near a group of kids. (Just kidding, just kidding).
Glad you had a great trip! I'm in need of a beachy vacation asap!

Thank you, I actually prefer gloomy days at the beach, less people. I like the beach, I find it very calming but too long on a beach and I get pretty bored. Gulf Shores? Never heard of it. I hate jellyfish, ugh, jellyfish stings suck it hard. I've never caught one before haha sounds interesting. Haha love the line about the kids. It was a great trip *sigh*. Plan that beach vacation missy.

ooohh I miss the beach! Our beaches in Brisbane aren't actually that good (nice on the coast- but that's an hour away). But I never get a tan either! I'm cursed to be pale forever!!

And that burger looks delicious! omnomnom

The beach is a lovely place to be. Really? I've never been to Australia but I always pictured in my mind that all the beaches there had to be beautiful. An hour away isn't too bad at least? I use to get a tan when I was a kid and ever since then I just can't seem to manage one, I just get a sunburn, which are no fun. I don't mind being pale but golden skin is pretty too.

I actually didn't order this burger, it was my boyfriends but I took a few bites of it because it was soooo good.
