We wanted to book in a small hotel, with a kitchenette.
And it was clean!
The room had a full-sized refrigerator, a kitchenette, a nice big room and cute bathroom.
And we could be on the beach in less than 60 seconds!
So we threw our suitcases in the corner, changed clothes and ran straight out to see the view.
Notice, there wasn't many people?
It is because it was COLD by Florida standards.
The first day, we hit 70F degrees.
It was downhill from there for a few days (which I will talk about later), but still,
it WAS the ocean!
And it was a heck of a lot warmer than Upper Michigan.
We did not mind an empty beach at all. We took many long walks on the beach, admiring the scenary:
And these Cuties:
And they had THESE.....
Just ready for relaxation and a good book....
Until you spied one of THESE:
They are everywhere.
But don't worry.
The picture makes them look HUGE.
Actually, they are very tiny and very fast.
And more scared of YOU than you are of THEM.
I thought they were kind of cute.
We saw lots of fun flowers and plants to look at and photograph while we were there too.
Like this one, growing wild.
I used to have a houseplant like it:
And one of the FAVORITE things I like about Florida
is its BIRDS.
(There are many blogposts coming with photos of the birds).
(Because I just can't help myself!)
When we took ocean walks, we saw a lot of different kinds of seagulls:
They would chase the waves.
