Vero Beach

Some ideas for when you visit Vero Beach.
The Ocean Grill has very tasty food (pricey, though) and a fun, eclectic interior. You could park near the restaurant and do shops and walk the beach. There’s plenty of beach access points along A1A north and south of Vero Beach. Disney has a resort north of the restaurant on A1A.
We stopped at the McLarty Treasure Museum. It was fascinating to learn about 1,500 survivors stranded here when a fleet of Spanish treasure ships sank off the coast in 1715.
We only had a half hour to stop at Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge. I can’t guarantee you would see dolphins, but if you want to try, we saw a pod of dolphins feeding in the river.
Here’s a good list of things to do in and near Vero Beach. Continue reading Vero Beach

Restaurants in DeLand, Florida

We’ve been able to explore some of the many good restaurants in DeLand, Florida, often walking from Stetson University campus to the historic downtown. I’ll add to this list over time.  We recommend all of these. Restaurants in DeLand, Florida Angelina’s Pizzeria has delicious pizzas and Italian food at affordable prices.  Our portions were large, so you could share. Bill & Frank’s Brickhouse Grill has delicious food, but can get too crazy-busy on a weekend night, so try another time. Boston Coffeehouse I loved the decor (the original Boston Coffeehouse is on New York Ave.) and my sandwich on a … Continue reading Restaurants in DeLand, Florida

Around Lake Michigan

After Staff Training, we went to visit our financial partners and friends from Green Bay, Wisconsin, to Grand Rapids, Michigan. Instead of turning around and re-tracing our route, we continued the drive and went around Lake Michigan. We slowed our pace and stopped to see lighthouses, beaches,and historic sites. This photo is of the Mackinac Light and Bridge. We also went up to Sault Ste. Marie and saw a little bit of Lake Superior and watched a barge and boats go through the locks. We had a great trip and have lots of captioned photos to share with you. Continue reading Around Lake Michigan

The Emerald Coast

Occasionally we like to get off the interstate and enjoy a scenic drive. We thoroughly enjoyed driving on 98 in Florida from Medart to Panama City. I recommend this stretch of road along the Gulf Coast for a drive, for relaxing on the beach, for wildlife viewing, for photography, or for a quiet getaway. It was a beautiful day and I wished we had a bit more time for taking more photos. We did stop a couple of times for some great shots that we can share with you. We passed a lot of great spots to take pictures, so … Continue reading The Emerald Coast

Our Annual Beach Trip

For about fifteen years, we have gone to Cocoa Beach every winter for a family weekend. The boys were visiting for Spring Break so we were still able to all go. I’ve put together some photos from over the years. If you are going to be visiting Kennedy Space Center or vacationing on the Space Coast, we can recommend some of the different things we have done in the area.
