So, why have I been AWOL? Busy, busy with visitors and family.
If you will remember, there was a visit to Anna Maria Island:
Where we stayed at a nice cottage rental:
Spent time with my two brothers:
And got to meet Sandy, from Perth, Australia:
THEY, got to go to the beach where Sadie made a famous video:
The Maven was there the whole time!
Got back to Orlando and managed to see this movie:
Went to The Sugar Mill in Deland, FL:
And had do-it-yourself:
Stopped off at Blue Springs State Park:
Took a wonderful nature boat ride (highly recommended for those burned out on The Mouse) and saw...
...gators, turtles, manatees, turkeys, eagles, many, many water birds and deer!
Went to dinner at Orlando's signature park, Lake Eola, where the fountain looks like this by day:
And like this by night:
Admired our downtown skyline (hey, I know it's not Manhattan - it's better!):
Saw swans and cignets (bonus points if you know what that means):
Lots of swans:
Even black ones from Australia:
And, of course, those sweet cignets:
Went to NSB (New Smyrna Beach for newbies):
And ate at Breakers:
Best beachfront dining in the area:
Hosted a get together with friends and family.
(Such a raucous time was had by all that no pictures are available, but believe me, it happened)
Then, it all went quiet.
Mr. Connor returned to Brandon, FL.
The Aussies headed to the Grand Canyon and I rested...
Then I went out with CG and got myself another Ball jar.
Yep, the obsession continues.
And we've found a new place to haunt in the Orlando area. You can see the name and website on the bag next to my obsession jar.
So, life returns to normal (whatever that is) at Boston Manor, but not for long!
Mr. Tennis, Sadie, Sassy the Chihuahua and Panda enjoy, what else?
The French Open!!! He's not called Mr. T for nothing!
June holds many changes and excitement for our family.
