Florida Trip!

Hey girls and possibly boys, I know it's been awhile since I have posted anything, but that's because my boyfriend flew in from PA, and we both took a trip to Florida for a few days. My boyfriend has never ever been to Florida, but yet he says he wants to live there, so I had to show him just how great it is!

 On the way down we stopped in Palm Coast, at my favorite Publix, to get some sushi. Driving through Daytona, my boyfriend was nothing but smiles when he saw Harley Davidson Shop, we stopped in there, he got an expensive shirt, we took some pictures, then it was off to the highway. We ended the day driving into Hard Rock Hotel, that's right, I surprised him with a two night stay there! The next day we went to Universal, and Islands of Adventure, (Corey has those pictures on his camera), note to self: the park is still packed during September with lots of tourist! After a long day of walking, we went to Loews Portofinio Bay Hotel, to Mama Dellas to eat some real Italian Food. It was nice, but don't plan on visiting there, unless you have some extra $$$. After dinner, we went and took pictures around the hotel, and managed to find some Ducks, so we sat and watched them for a good half an hour, then headed back to our hotel.
The next day we ventured off to Blue Springs, it's $6 to get into the State Park. We attempted to go swimming, we put on our snorkeling gear, and headed down the stairs into the 72 degree water, let's just say it was nippy! I only swam for maybe ten mins, by the time I was done, Corey was on his last stair getting into the water! So after that, we walked all the board walks, and ended up at the St.John River. We saw tons of fish, Turtles, Birds, but no Alligators nor Manatees..
After that, we headed back to Daytona, and ended up staying at the Hilton on the beach! Our view from our window was amazing! Even our room was nice! The first thing we did, was went swimming! Even the pool there was nippy! Later on that night, I took Corey to Bubba Gumps Restaurant, ordered the amazing Hush Pups, some drinks, and some food. After we were done filling our bellies, we walked the beach. Then went back to our hotel and got a quick dip in the hot tub! The next day we took A1A North, and went through Ormond Beach, St.Augustine, Jacksonville, and ended up eating at Joe's Crab Shack, after lunch, we walked the beach it was nice, and relaxing. It was such a great trip; I am so glad I finally got to take Corey there! We did so many fun things, it might have costed us, but in the end, it was all definitely worth it!

Awesome photos! All that food looks amazing. I honestly don't know which looks more delish. And I love the photo of the boat at night. Great shot :)

Wow, you got some amazing shots. Just looking at all of this is making me hungry. I am from Florida originally, and this makes me a little homesick:)
