Home Sweet Home

Quote of the Day

Peanut, "Wow, mom, now we can say we've been to all 50 states! What are we gonna do next?"

So much for the "Sunshine State"

The past few days have had short breaks without rain. In St. Augustine, we splashed through puddles on St. George Street and ate Cuban food. After arriving at the Inn at Cocoa Beach we fought the wind to dip our feet in the Atlantic o n e last time (and scoop our 50th little bottle of state dirt!). Naturally we ate more Cuban food.

Then at Cape Canaveral we stood in the most powerful rain we've ever experienced -- even those from Florida were convinced it was a hurricane on the way.

So, to put it bluntly, we're water logged and ready to get out of this dripping state!

This is especially upsetting since we intended to
celebrate the culmination of our 50 state adventure by having a pretty extensive Florida itinerary: historical St. Augustine, lunch with an astronaut at Cape Canaveral, swimming with manatees in the Crystal River, Doodle's live mermaid show in Weeki Watchee, Caladesi Island, Sanibel Island for shells and finally a quick stint in Miami for a final Cuban food binge fest.

Ah well, we've promised the kids to come back another time...
