She sells sea shells

On our recent trip to Florida we popped by to visit the Disney Epcot version of England. You know how I love a thatched roof cottage!


We took the opportunity to also visit Japan.


I simply adored the gardens in Canada.

The next day had us on safari at the Wild Animal Park.

This mama and her sweet baby were a delight to watch.

Need a lift?

Over the 4th of July weekend we attended the Panama Canal Reunion at a lovely resort.

Next on the schedule was a visit to Grandma Joyce's house near St. Augustine. This lovely jaunt deserves a post all its own in the near future. But here is a taste.

Of course no trip to Florida is complete without a trip to the beach. I could have watched this delightful duo for hours.

Sweet boy enjoyed the water from sun up...


...until sundown. (That is a temporary dragon tattoo on his lower back. :)

I imagine that you also want to see a shot of me frolicking in the waves. So here you go. :)

Come back on Wednesday for a beach inspired craft.

Hello there! Good to hear that you enjoyed Florida. We went there in spring, we also did England, Japan and a Safari. One of my friends is flying to Africa to do a Safari and I doubt whether it is so much fun as the one in Animal Kingdom! I could have sworn that I met de same birds in Naples! Whow your Grandma Joyce is a lucky lady! Cannot wait to see more! Have a great start of the week!

We live in the Orlando area and never cease to be charmed with Disney World. St. Augustine is my husband's and my favorite place in Florida! It's about time to go back. It's a beautiful and surprising city. Looks like you had lots of fun.
