A few weekends ago I was lucky enough to join some girl friends from work for a beach trip. It was the best time of eating, laughing, sharing, and exploring!
We packed up and took off after work on Thursday. We all took Friday off so we could enjoy a long weekend. We drove, about 6 hours, and only stopped for the important sights on the way to Florida.
We had to stop at this gas station to see the wild alligators!
I only saw one, bummer.
We arrived late evening and were so excited to drop our bags and see the beautiful ocean from the deck.
Friday we slept in and drove to Rosemary to rent bikes.
Now, let me tell you about riding bikes. It is not as easy as everyone says when you haven't been on one in 20 years!! I thought mine was messed up but Adriane eagerly hopped on to check it and did just fineeeeee. Long story short- I am no pro biker.
We rode a total of 16 miles on our adventure.
We rode 8 miles to Seaside to shop and eat!
We had lunch at the delicious Taco Bar.
We also explored the big wine festival.
Saturday we started our day off right.
This was a bowl of everything good; potatoes, onions, eggs, bacon, and cheese.
We sat out on the beach for a good bit and read and chatted.
We made a pact that we wouldn't bring our bathing suits. Who wants to wear one in November??
Needless to say, that pact resulted in some odd tan lines for a few of us.
Our last night out we went to a lovely, fancy dinner.
This picture was for Sue. She is from South Africa so we were being "tribal" for her.
Baked brie appetizer, definitely polished that off myself.
Me and Kelly
Adriane and Sue!
My odd but amazing meal. Parmesan risotto, green beans, and haystack potatoes.
We finished the night off right with some white chocolate creme brulee.
It was the perfect trip. I can't wait till next year!
(This is the trip that caused the two weeks of no white flour and no sugar)
Can you imagine why??
