So, I went home to Orlando for Valentine’s Weekend and it was special for a
number of reasons, not the least of which was my traveling companion, RJM —
a BIG thank you for a GREAT trip!
It was wonderful to wander the streets of Winter Park, even though I did experience
a moment of sadness when we went by my old house, and discovered it had finally
met its destined fate with the wrecking ball, and was reduced to an expensive
sandlot on Lake Virginia. Amazing, I’ve been gone for 5 years, and as much as
things have changed, most have stayed the same. I’m still homesick, as usual.
And while the weather was at least 80 degrees out when we landed Thursday night,
(it never seemed to rise above 75 the entire weekend) we really only had one
sunny day (Sunday)– but, as most folks know, a bad day in FL is better than
a good day virtually anywhere up North. Here’s a quick summary of my time spent in Florida:
My whirlwind trip included much time spent
A quick (2-3 hour) excursion to Daytona Beach to:
A slightly longer excursion to Oldsmar for
- Valentine’s Dinner with Susan, Brian & Nicholas
- The di-riguer trip to Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks
- Wistful trip back to Orlando for a last night in town
All in all, it was a wonderful, albeit, short trip home. Here’s to many more!
