Back in March, I went on a last minute trip with a friend, Viv and her friend, Soni, whom I hadn't met yet, to Jacksonville, Florida. When Viv invited me, I was deep in the middle of my yearly "if I don't get some warm air and some sunshine on my face soon, there is no way I'm going to survive the rest of this miserable winter" phase. So, a long weekend in Florida sounded like exactly what I needed.
Here are some of the highlights:
This huge plate of seafood was definitely a highlight of the trip!
We watched this dolphin swimming in the river downtown for quite a while.
The best part of the trip was the hours we spent at the beach. It was so perfect! We chatted, ate yummy sandwiches, relaxed, dipped out toes in the water, walked along the beach, and wished we could have stayed longer. It was exactly what I needed to be able to go back to the freezing cold and survive the rest of the winter.
