When we travel I always like to take the opportunity to learn something and our recent trip to Florida allowed me the opportunity to have some much needed down time and while Chris slaved away working I was able to decompress and plot my strategy for taking down and putting away those Christmas decorations when I got back home. Ugh.
We had some great meals and checked out some great beaches in our ever continuing search for the perfect beach. You know we will find it one of these days and we definitely know what we like and what we don’t like by this point.
So what did I learn while in Florida?
Steaks at the Texas Cattle Company in Lakeland, Florida are big and tasty and have a unique taste due to being cooked over citrus and oak woods. Yum.Florida Starbucks can get my name correct but I suspect it is because I did not add the “Ann” to it.Fish tacos taste better when eaten beach side even if it is windy. Hats off to the Beachhouse Waterfront Restaurant on Anna Marie Island for the fabulous spread. Yes, literally—hats off. Lighthouses don’t have to be located near water. They can actually guard over parking lots and businesses. Beaches were segregated for a very long time. A very long time.All of the beaches we visited during this trip were different. Some were pristine, some unpopulated, some really crowded, some full of shells, some devoid of shells, but all were lovely.The beach is the perfect place to ring in the new year.Finally, sunsets on the beach are worth waiting for.
Do you have any fun Florida facts to add to my list? Feel free to add them in the comments section and remember that all comments go to support our Comments for a Cause this month.
