So as I looked through all these vacation photos, I realized there isn't any good way to pick just one. All of our trips were wonderful. If there were National Lampoonish disasters, I don't remember them (well, I remember a few things - but nothing huge). What I remember mostly was fun times bonding with my family. Awesome meals. Running out of the allowance I'd painstakenly saved for months only to have my Dad slip me a few extra bucks of spending money. Stopping at South of the Border even though it was the junkiest place on earth - only because my brother and I saw the 34th billboard on the interstate and just HAD to stop.
So I picked the St. Augustine Florida photos. Because of the beach. And the smelly (whew!) alligator farm. And their orange pumpkin jellyfish. And because we always went to Marineland.
What you can't see in this picture is Taylor's awesome Thundercats t-shirt. And the fact that he was wearing a squeaky duck billed hat.
You can, however, see my awesome pink seal shirt and my red socks that match my red visor.
Gotta love the 80s.
We always ate at this place called the Santa Maria. It was over the water.
The cool thing about it was that there were trap doors on the sides of the tables.
You could open the trap doors and feed the fish below your scraps.
And here I am on the beach. It's always been such a refuge for me...to see, smell, and hear the ocean. My Dad and I would wake up early to walk the beach before anyone else was up, picking up seashells and watching the sun rise.
