Time for a road trip!!! After a couple months of worry, hospitals, and lots of changes my family was doing well enough for us to go on our vacation.
Greg and I hopped in the car and headed south! Naturally once we are passed the Mason Dixon Line we crave BBQ! We stopped at Lone Star BBQ in Santee SC for some delicious and dairy free BBQ!
On our last full day in Miami we decided to check out the Art Deco area, Hispaniola Way, and enjoy some more beach time! The only thing I regret is not getting over to Romero Britto's Gallery but there's always next time! For dinner we had one of the best meals of our lives! We dined at The Bazaar! For my full review visit here.
The next morning we headed north to Orlando. We were going to spend time with one of my best friends, relax, and see a bit of Disney World. We pulled up and checked into the Waldorf Astoria Orlando. For my full review with pictures visit here. My friend met us in the lobby and we enjoyed some drinks and appetizers in lounge. The herb french fries were amazing! Once our room was ready we got to spend some quality time chatting thanks to the living room in our suite. For dinner the three of us went downstairs to Bull & Bear. For our dinner review visit here.
The next day we went to Disney Springs for some shopping and lunch. I love this area. We got Disney gifts for family, "dolls" for Greg to paint, clothing for me, and yummy goodies! We ate lunch at Bongo's where I found mint lemonade - yum!! We also stopped in to Erin McKenna's Bakery for some vegan goodies! Unfortunately my stomach didn't tolerate these as well as other vegan baked goods.
On our last day in Orlando we went to Epcot. We were able to get our tickets ahead of time at the Waldorf Resort. Yay no ticket lines! When we go to Epcot we do go on some rides but we basically shop and drink our way through the countries! Our first stop is always Mexico for Margarita's at La Cava del tequila!!
The next day we made the long drive home to our little Fred! Stopping along the way for some southern produce, and snacks!
We have been busier than bees lately! In addition to daily life, dining out, and traveling we sold our house! We did some small upgrades to our house, put it up for sale and found a buyer right away. Then came selling all of our belongings, packing what we wanted to keep and downsizing to our new place in a new town! We are finally getting settled and figuring out our new daily life. Now it's time to catch up on sharing our adventures with you! I will finally be posting about:
Our trip to Miami and Orlando - lots of restaurants (including our new fav), drinks, hotels and spending time with friends!
Our trip to Saint John New Brunswick again - hiking, lobster, and pet friendly accommodations!
