Getaway
















So loyal follower Jill has pointed out that I'haven't blogged in a week! We've been away. We snuck over to Orlando for a few days of R&R, lounging poolside with fruity umbrella drinks, recharging our batteries. We stayed at a new place this time. Staybridge Suites Orlando Hotels On I-Drive. A very nice hotel. We had a suite overlooking the pool, and since we were celebrating our 20th anniversary, the staff sent up a very nice fresh fruit basket and a bottle of wine and a card with 2 Herseys Kisses attached. We thought that was very sweet.

We took one day and drove to the East coast and ate a late lunch, early dinner at Dixie Crossroads Seafood Restaurant - Titusville Florida. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE their rock shrimp! I had 4 dozen and John had 5 dozen. Along with the free corn fritter appetizers that everyone gets, our potato and salad. Then we found a seafood market that sells the rock shrimp, so we bought a cheapie styrofoam cooler and got 4 lbs of rock shrimp to bring home, a sheepshead fish that we had them fillet and some Kingfish steaks. They packed the cooler for us, and put it on dry ice to keep til we got back home.

We had a very nice few days and are now back to the daily grind! Don'tcha wish vacations lasted just a bit longer!

They never seem to last long enough!
