{guest post} sunshine, love & the open road...

This coming summer, for one week, my love and I plan to take a whirlwind tour of the perimeters of Florida. Or, at least the lower half of Florida. We will begin in Fort Lauderdale where he lives, drive along the coast up north to Cocoa to visit his mom, hop on over to Cape Canaveral (we are both astronomy buffs), head west to Orlando to visit his dad, up a little ways to Ocala to visit a college friend of mine (that I haven't seen in over two years), then drive southwest towards Saint Petersburg and continue along the coast and through the Everglades until we reach Key Largo. Maybe even all the way to Key West. Then back on up through Miami and return to Fort Lauderdale.

My vision is that this is a road trip. With nothing really planned except the road. If we decide to rest the night, we'll find a place. If we decide to stay longer somewhere that looks interesting, we will. If we decide to spend the day at a beach, any beach, we just might. Sunshine and love, it's all I need.

Ooh, you'll love Florida. I've lived in St. Petersburg for two and a half decades and could never imagine living elsewhere. Let me know if you want the skinny on good places to eat/sleep/dance/thrift/be touristy.

misguidedambition - thanks! our plans have actually changed a little. i think i was being a little over-achieving by planning to do ALL of this in the ONE week that i'll be there! so we're just going to cocoa, cape canaveral, orlando, universal, and ocala. but someday we'll do the rest of it and i'll be sure to ask you!

and i love florida. i spent many family vacations in sarasota, and i lived in fort lauderdale for two years while going to college, which is where my boyfriend and i met :)
