I'm back

celina80: (I Gotta Get Out)
I got back in from Florida last night, and was too exhausted to hop online to check email and all that jazz. I had a pretty good time in Daytona, weather was beautiful all four days I was there, and no the parentals didn't find a house.

For the first time in my nearly 25 years of life did I see a gator. Yes people I am a proud see-er of a gator. It looked small, and it was minding it's own business watching the cars on their way to and from Kennedy. Also got to see what a bridge does for big boats...oddly enough I've never seen a bridge open before. I took a pic, yes at the same time I'm a tourist.

On the way to Daytona, we went through St. Augustine. I LOVE the homes near/on the water. If those homes could talk, they would be able to write books. I had never been to or through St. Augustine, but it's a place that would be full of history I'm sure.

What I didn't expect to see was the damage that still remains nearly a year after the last hurricane. Daytona Beach must have been hit pretty damn hard. Hotels that I knew were there two years ago, were nothing but leveled sand with the reminders of what once was. I took pics of the hotels with damage. The room I was staying in still had some damage, but was renovated enough to have guests. For those of you who are curious where I was staying...it was 1615 Atlantic Ave. Inn on the Beach. I LOVE that place, and I don't know why. I'll have to post my pics later.

I walked the beach everyday. I'd walk from my hotel nearly three quarters of a mile to the halfway point from my place to the main street pier. So round trip...I walked one and a half miles on the beach.

So I come home and it's COLD! There is something seriously wrong with leaving 80 degree weather and coming back to the possiblity of snow and 45 degree weather. The possible move date is sometime this summer. And I'll have another update to tell the potential living conditions that WILL make me move out ASAP.

EDIT: I'd like to say happy birthday to the lovely Miss Riley [livejournal.com profile] rileyd84. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHICA!!!!
