New Smyrna Beach Fl.

For the past week we have been up near Orlando, visiting family. They had a soccer tournament, so we went to see that
 and then continued on to the house that they had rented, and which we were going to stay at for the week.

The first night we went out to a Japanese Steakhouse, which was pretty awesome. You would sit at a U-shaped table, and in the middle was a large metal sheet which they did all the cooking on. These guys are skilled; it’s hard to describe ...

Visiting the cousins

New Smyrna Beach FL.

While we were at the cat place, we also were packing up to go to a beach house that the cousins (Meridian, Acadia, Sawyer) rented because of Meridian’s soccer game in Orlando. We rented a car and drove to their house with some presents and beach things. It took around 3 hours to get there because the traffic was so bad we didn’t even get to the hotel, we had to go straight to the soccer field. When we got there, we had a lot of fun and Sawyer a...

Bill Baggs Bugs Beach

December 15th (Second time posting this)

We woke up to the lovely feeling of being eaten alive by blood sucking zombie bugs. SOMEONE had left the hatches open the night before because they thought there wasn't going to be any bugs. So we quickly ate some pancakes that had some suspicious black spots in them and hurried off to the beach. Which was supposed to be the 7th best beach in all the US. I don’t know who made up the list, but hey obviously hadn't been to many beaches. I mean, the nu...

Yesterday (I think all my posts begin this way... must think of an alternative beginning soon) we got up, had some breakfast, and tried to attempt to do a pump out at the dock. However, by the time we managed to get to the station- boats kept coming in- it was like 10:00. And like 43 degrees C. And then the guy who was helping us and had worked at the marina for 10 years didn’t know how to work the machine, so we were sitting there for another hour. 
When we finally got...

Melborne Beach Florida

December 5th and 6th

Yesterday we got up, got some breakfast which I do not remember(bacon and egg sandwiches), did some stuff that I also cannot remember, and got packed up to go to the beach. It was very calm, not a breath of wind, and sunny. And I will also mention hot; very very hot. Then again its Florida, home of oranges and surfers and lizards, so it’s to be expected.  Dad rowed us in- yah for dad!!- and we walked the 7 minute walk straight across the island, past the skeleton driver

Beach, Dolphins, and Rockets

Ponce De Leon Inlet
December 3

Today we went and exlored a "Spoil Island".  These are created when they dredge.  But this island has been left for many years based on the trees on it.  There was a strange mailbox on the island, but signs of any humans.

Then we headed over to the beach...New Smyrna Dune Beach.  The kids kayaked over and we took the dingy....with the motor power!  There was a strong out going current that pushed us most of the way to the beach.  We towed the last bit across the c...

Marineland Florida Nov 30 (mile marker 795)

Posted by Sahara on Sunday, December 1, 2013, In : On the beach 

By Sahara

We arrived at Marineland- which is a marina, not a park- yesterday in the afternoon. We decided to go for a short walk through the palm tree forest, where we discovered that palm branches are practically impossible to break off, yet when you do manage to whack them –or should I say hack- they make very good spears.  And that there is a very yucky plant with spikes that come off and stick to anything that touches it.

Passed this amazing dock

We then walked out to the beach, which w...
