Hello from sunny, hot Florida! It is SO good to be here; I've been looking forward to this trip for a long time and I'm tickled that our vacation has begun!
We left Toronto Tuesday morning, the 14th, and spent the first night in Kentucky and the second night in Georgia, then arrived here at our hotel late Thursday afternoon. I have always loved a road trip and this one did nothing to change that opinion. Put me in a car, put me on a journey, and I'm a happy soul.
The photo above is looking north, taken while outside on our balcony here at our hotel in Melbourne, right on the ocean. And tomorrow we move into "our" condo for the week prior to our 30th anniversary cruise. It's not our very own Florida condo -- I wish -- it's just one we've stayed at before. It's on the ocean too, only not as high up as we are here at the hotel; we're on the 14th floor here. Very high! We've already spotted dolphins out in the ocean not far from shore and I know we'll see lots of dolphins from our condo balcony too.
Off now for a relaxing bath. They upgraded us at check-in because our room wasn't ready and so we have a room with a soaker jacuzzi tub. Heaven!
