Last month, we took a trip down to Florida to visit Jack’s Grandparents. While it did take 2 days to drive from Ohio to Florida, it was not a hardship at all. We were on the Gulf side, between Sarasota and Ft. Meyers, FL. The weather was PERFECT and BEAUTIFUL. We spent a few days at the beach (where I got sunburned badly), one at the big aquarium in Sarasota and the rest of the time just enjoying the company. I love that my In-laws are Snow Birds. I think I may join them next year.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from the trip. You can be sure there were a ton more than this, but I thought I’d pick my favorites for this post. I did run them through Photoshop, but the only touch ups I did for any of them was auto levels/color/contrast. I didn’t do anything fancy at all. I didn’t feel that they needed anything. Maybe I’ll play around with them another day.
These are my in-laws. I loved how they look as they’re taking a walk on the beach. Of these two very similar photos, I couldn’t decide which I liked better, so put them both on here.
After the grandparents finished their walk, they said they’d watch Jack while Rick and I went for a walk on the beach. What a great time. I want to remember what it feels like to walk in the surf and sand.
This Egret looks so regal sitting on the pier waiting for his next meal – an accidental drop by a fisherman perhaps? The Herron was ready at a moments notice. Or maybe he just enjoyed watching the fishermen on the pier like we did.
The last night of our vacation, we went to the beach to watch the sunset. It was a cloudy night, so the sunset wasn’t all that impressive, but the subtle color in the clouds were still beautiful. I’ll definitely miss the beach!
