Since Terry wanted to go to Alaska, and Benjamin wanted to go to Hawaii, I became the voice of reason (weird, right?), and we’re planning our next road trip for Florida. Terry and I drove to Florida in 1991, and then we finally went back again in 2013 with Benjamin. The trip in 1991 was our first ever road trip, the first real vacation for either of us. I thought of it as our honeymoon even though we had been married for three years.
When I looked through our pictures from Florida in 2013 recently, I realized that maybe a tenth of them are actually from Florida. Most are from the trip there and back. So this trip, we’re going to drive straight to Florida and go from there. There’s a lot of stuff in Florida. And there are some places we want to go back to, like Delray Beach, Caspersen Beach, and WonderWorks. Caspersen Beach is where we found the prehistoric shark teeth. That’s about the only reason to go there unless you like being dragged under and tossed back into large sharp rocks. Benjamin kind of liked it. The beach was pretty full of people looking for the shark teeth. Terry found most of them; I found a couple, and Benjamin, who didn’t wear his glasses to the beach, couldn’t see well enough to find any. So we need to go back so he can wear his glasses this time. A trip to the eye doctor before we go probably wouldn’t hurt either.
So, now I begin the New Plan for Florida!
