Another trip story!

Florida 2013

I went back for my sun and sand fix a bit early this year, who wouldn’t after the cold spell we had been having! Started on the east coast, where I once again was able to walk for  miles, and meet interesting creatures…     Contrary to my usual ways I tried a couple of […]
