Tonya, her husband Mike, and son Blake were able to sneak away from snowy cold Ohio for a little spring break weekend to Daytona! They flew in near Orlando, drove up to Daytona for 2 days, and then came to spend a night at Mom and Lowell's before heading back. So we FINALLY got to meet each other in person!
Mom and Steveio made a nice meal of a baked ham dinner
complete with pineapples on top, mashed taters, veggies and biscuits!
Ooooh my feet just couldn't wait to dig my toes into the sand...
We played "tourist" and took some pics while we got our feet wet in the water...
(but Steveio and Lowell didn't)
I think Mom and Auntie Lois were two of the biggest KIDS on the beach!
I scooped up some "goody bags" of pure white sand for the grandtots to enjoy... yes, I bagged it up into five smaller bags and mailed them out yesterday! I put on a note that they should get some Florida Sand Between Their Toes.... I hope their mommies dump it on the floor and let them put their feet in it! LOL
Cedar Key is known for it's gathering of pelicans and other sea birds along the pier that goes out into the water... We walked out to see some fishermen wrangling their catch from the swooping dives of the pelicans! LOL.... When the catch is too small, they toss it over to the waiting birds.
I found a buddy while hanging out on the pier
play this little video clip?
We drove on back home for an evening of wine and laughter out on the deck... with good wishes and sweet dreams we all crashed about 10 pm. It sure had been a LONG day for all of us.
Knowing the next morning we would be losing an hour due to Daylight Savings Time, Tonya and her family had to get up and going after a big breakfast cooked by Chef Lowell.
They had a plane to catch and we waved goodbye and wished them safe travels!
I am posting this a day late, but I just hadn't time to catch up yet.
Next blog will be about our last day in Florida.
As I write this, we are safely ensconced in our rig at a Walmart north of Atlanta....
