Ah, that's better...a long break always feels good and loosens the spring on this tightly wound dude.
Curls, Pigtails and I flew our burned buns in from Florida today. It was my favorite vacation ever. I don't travel much, so a trip to Dollywood is considered exotic in my book. The blue hair advice from readers was spot on, you nailed it. Thank you.
Booking beach cottages vs. hotels sealed the deal on making this trip aggressively relaxing, airbnb.com hooked us with the goods. Our abode in St. Augustine was especially fetching, Victor's the man at building out this 1920s gem into something rediculous.
Moon and lighthouse from the floating dock by night:
Our other rental out of Sarasota didn't fail, $85 a night for a quiet stay on a property assessed at $3.5mil (yep, we looked it up). Open view to the bay with sea kayaks and bikes available in case of emergency bordom:
Florida beaches were stout and comely, the Atlantic and Gulf coasts wonderfully different. Siesta Key was purtty but not our fav', we found better.
We ran into a mouse and princess, too.
More to come, the full recap will needle towards informative than entertaining. Hoping it may serve as a guide for those looking to head south to drink the sun.
