East Coast Wrap UpAugust 25, 2018
Looking back at the year
After 7 months it was time to head back to Chicago. I had to be there to welcome my new nephew. (And check in with work.) I enjoyed our travels east so much I didn’t want to come home.
I basically stopped writing starting in the new year and we will be starting a new adventure so here are some things I always want to remember.
Meeting up with the Jensens in North Carolina, Daytona and Crystal River. It was great to have some friends on the road.
Girls swimming with the Manatees at Hunter Springs Park in Crystal River…fully clothed.
My 162 no-see-um bites.
Watching the “lost payload” SpaceX launch.
Shark Valley in the Everglades, all the alligators we saw and the ranger’s crazy stories.
Florida has the most beautiful birds. Ibises are to Florida as pigeons are to Chicago. They were everywhere.
Mr. Sean as our own personal Disney World guide.
Universal and Harry Potter World…of course, and the Hulk roller coaster shutting down.
Touring all the Disneyworld resorts and enjoying all they have to offer. Nina turns 12 at Art of Animation.
Happily Ever After Fireworks countless times and always great.
Tarpon Springs and the sponge docks.
Sherwood Forest is better than Tropical Palms.
Black Mountain Ciderworks and Meadery has the best cider in the US and everyone should check them out.
On July 30th my family started on the road…without me. I miss them incredibly and knowing that they are having fun without me is bittersweet. I’m so happy that they have this opportunity yet, sad that I am not experiencing it with them. I can’t wait to join back up with them and make more wonderful memories.
Miss you guys!
