On the road

I’m way late to the party but better late than never I always say. It’s been a busy few days but in a good way. The kids had a mini Spring Break over the Easter weekend so I’ve had them home from Thursday on… tomorrow they head back to school. With them being home I spent more time with them than online or blogging… which is as it should be, right? Anyways, we went swimming almost daily, had fun doing Easter things and just enjoyed our time together. I love my kiddos and I love spending time with them when there is no drama…

Here now my contribution to Stasha’s Monday Listicles... the theme for this week is The Road. I dug through the pictures of our recent travels, roadtrips to Tampa, daytrips along A1A and some from our trip through the heart of Florida along SR 60.

Heading into West Palm Beach


Palm trees lining the streets heading into Palm Beach.


Driving along A1A in Palm Beach County... view of Lake Worth.


It's rare to see the Turnpike this empty.


Cows and hey bales along SR 60 in Florida.


Viewing a bridge opening from the Jupiter Lighthouse in Jupiter, Fl.


Entrance to Ybor City in Tampa, Fl.


Sunset viewed from the car on I-75, west coast of Fl.


One of my favorite bridges in Florida. The Sunshine Skyway in St. Petersburg, Fl.


Heading onto the Sunshine Skyway... hubby hates it, I love it.


Our favorite mode of transportation in Tampa... the trolley cars.



Hope you enjoyed your trip along the roads I have traveled in recent months!

    • I take it he likes bridges? This one is a beaut… My husband absolutely hates driving over it because it’s so high. I on the other hand adore it. :)

    • Oh I’m so glad. And happy you have fond memories. We actually live on the East Coast of Fl but love travelling to Tampa.

  5. I love road trips! I’ve never been to Florida, but it looks beautiful. You always post the most amazing photos. I passed on the lovely award you gave me today, and I gave you one back. Even though you’ve already received it, I thought you deserved it twice. :) http://live-by-rule2.blogspot.com/2012/04/two-fer-tuesday.html

  7. We have a bridge here in Charleston that looks just like that one from the side. Not the approach view, but the panoramic view. So pretty!! Gosh I love those tall, tall palm trees. The ones here are nice, but they don’t compare!! I hope you have/had a nice trip!!

    • They are so fun. The kids love it. You can move the backs of the benches so that a family of four Or five can sit facing each other. The kids love doing that. :)

  9. Great pictures. I think the bridge would freak me out, my husband would love it…
    Grüße aus Kanada ;)

    • Thanks. We are the other way around… the bridge absolutely freaks my husband out. I on the other hand really love it. Gruesse zurueck aus Florida!!! :)
