iFlorida Memories – Part 1

We spent two wonderful weeks in Florida last June, driving across and then south along the Atlantic coast all the way to Key West, then back towards home along the Gulf coast.
It rained almost every day (with the exception of ONE) but thankfully the timing wasn’t too bad and it usually rained when we were driving from one destination to the next.

We saw some lighthouses and climbed to the top of most of them. This is Cape Florida.

We saw the most amazing rainbow that lasted well over an hour! This picture was taken from our hotel room balcony

Did I mention we saw some lighthouses?? This one is Pensacola Lighthouse as we were walking back from the beach.

Of course a slice of Key Lime Pie (or in this case Key Lime ice-cream pie!) is a MUST!

In Destin, Florida I even got a tattoo!! Just a henna tattoo…still too chicken for a real one. After I reassured Sara that it didn’t hurt at all, she got one, too.

    • Thank you Daneen! That Key Lime pie was really good. I should have ordered one for an appetizer, and one for lunch, too, before I ate this one for dessert! 😀

    Love the pics, M. Go for it! I’ve had my tat since 1999. Hoping for another sometime soon. It doesn’t hurt that much 🙂

    • Thank you Marg. And they don’t hurt that much compared to what?? LOL
      I’m such a chicken…. I need to be knocked out with a 2×4 to get a real tattoo

    • Thanks Dalia. There’s not much else to do when you sit in the car most of the day, so I might as well take pictures out the window LOL
      And what if someone stabbed you for free with a needle of ink?? 😀

    • Haha, not sure I would go quite that far, but it certainly ranks way up there 😉
