Jamaica

Posted on October 24, 2014 at 11:39 AM Comments comments ()
We are one week away from this amazing trip to the Sandals Grande Riviera resort, we spent last night on the tablet checking out the restaurants, yes all 15 of them! We are very excite to try some of the local dishes. We are staying in a club level room which has concierge service which will help in making tee times for my husband and dinner reservations for us also. We are have a candle light dinner on the beach which was a gift from our youngest son. We plan on taking a Catamaran sunset cruise and just enjoying the beach and resort. If time allows we will take a guided trip to the local markets to experience the local shopping. Stay tuned there will be pictures and details to follow.

The sun was bright, the water was warm, the waves crashed the beach gently!! It was a great weekend!!

We  had dinner at Moore's Seafood Restaurant which features Blue Stone Crab!!

Road Trip day two

Posted on September 9, 2014 at 1:32 PM Comments comments ()
Today the wake up call was later than yesterday as we have only 6 hours to our destination, breakfast at the hotel and on the road we go. Instead of staying on the interstate highways we traveled on state roads driving east and south cutting across the state, yes there are plenty of small towns doing it this way but you see more of what life is all about in the small towns. Once you get to Cheifland, FL you drive toward Ocala, FL the Horse Capital of the World,  the country side is lined with ranches and rolling hills. We made it before our grandson got home from school (he didn't know we were coming to visit) what a grand surprise for him when he walked in!!

Day 1 of the Road Trip

Posted on September 8, 2014 at 3:42 PM Comments comments ()
Alarm was set to go off at 3:30 am so we could leave Houston by 4:30 am to beat the rush hour traffic but in to true form I woke up at 2:45 am so we were on the road by 3:50 am travel mug in hand full of coffee. By 5:30 am we had crossed the state line into Louisiana and by 7:00 am we had breakfast in Jennings, LA. Touring across the Gulf Coast is a wonderful look at nature and what it has to offer. The Rice Paddies are lush and green, the Moss trees are covered with their white sheets of moss and  fall fishing is in full swing. 

By 11:00 am we have cross into Mississippi for a short 64 miles and then entered Alabama for yet a shorter time to enter the Tunnel in Florida and enter the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the sun shine made was making it glisten and it was very welcoming. Traveling across the Panhandle of Florida through the rolling hill, with all the different varieties of large towering pine trees such as Slash Pines, Loblolly Pines and Sugar Pines to name just a few. We arrived in Quincy, FL for a good nights rest around 5 pm....tomorrow is another day!!
