I actually decided to stay an extra day down in Florida. Instead of flying home Saturday night, I came home late Sunday night. Of course my flight got delayed and I got home about 1 am and then was up at 6 am for school on Monday. Crazy I know, but I just wanted one more day to relax and lay by the pool. I also wanted to go see my Aunt and Uncle one last time before I left. They are getting older and my Aunt is in a Physical Rehab facility because she has trouble walking without assistance.
It’s hard to believe that just a few days ago, I was on this beach:
Naples is a beautiful part of Florida that I had never really spent much time in before. It’s really gorgeous. There is a lot of old money and old people LOL. Right off the beach road (5 minute drive from the condo) are all these spectacular mansions that are really fun to look at and take pictures of but I could not even imagine being wealthy enough to own one.
This one was a particular favorite of mine:
It was a really relaxing and enjoyable vacation. We found a bunch of great thrift shops, did some shopping, went out to eat in a bunch of great restaurants, walked the beach, and drank pina coladas by the pool. My cousin and I went out to karaoke two nights (it’s huge in Florida) and had a ball!
I see now how much I really needed a break and realize how important it is to make the time to take more vacations. It recharges your batteries and reminds you of all the beauty there is in the world. I did miss my hubby very much and am glad to be home. Next time, he is definitely coming with me 😉
