Yesterday was our last day in the New Smyrna area.  We decided to spend a little time at the beach.  They have been having heavy seas for the past few days and there were a number of surfers out.  The weather has been on the cool side since we arrived.


We decided to see if we could find a restaurant in Orlando to have  a lunch/supper.  I have only been at the train station in Orlando and was pleasantly surprised at the beauty of the city.  It’s much larger than I expected full of trees and flowers and lakes.  Cindy had booked a room at the Hyatt at the airport, our flight leaves very early.  So off we go.


This is the view of the airport from our balcony.  The tree was beautiful.











The hotel was  beautiful.  We had an early flight and we would have had to leave Edgewater around 3 am to get to the airport and return the car and check in.   None of that rushing around.  The hotel had a wonderful heated outside pool on our floor.  It was surrounded with tropical plantings.  We did go swimming even though the night air was chilly.  Planes were taking off in the distance.  It was a very nice experience.

My trips to Florida are huge changes in lifestyle for me.  My usual life is quiet, rarely eating  out, spending most of my days at home.  In Florida I am on the go all the time.  Besides visiting my Mom up to three times a day at the assisted living I also have to pick up any items which she needs. etc.  Its like I am living in two worlds.  I consider myself lucky to be able to do this.  It certainly makes me appreciate home.  

I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you so much for reading my blog.  Carole
