We decided to start our adventure around the world with a trip within the US for a couple of reasons. First, we wanted to get started slowly and go to a familiar place as a warm up. Second, there are beautiful beaches to explore, and our goal was to tan and relax for a month or two. Last but not least, we are attending a wedding in June that could not be missed. So, here we are, in beautiful Florida, enjoying the sun, the cool breeze and the sound of the waves. Andrew has been snoozing to the sounds of some new progressive house that he downloaded and I've been reading on my kindle, which by the way has been very handy.
A couple of days ago, we did the beautiful drive on the A1A Coastal Highway, passing the most beautiful and HUGE beachfront mansions on the way. We visited Worth Avenue in Palm Beach where we saw so many Bentleys, Rolls Royces, Maseratis and other equally amazing cars that we eventually stopped pointing them out!!!
On the topic of amazing things, we found $9 in the ocean!! A 5 and 4 1's, lightly covered in sand at the bottom of the water which Andrew recovered with his feet! Its just so satisfying when you find money! However, I found a men's wallet today at a park and we turned it in right away.
Another activity that we tried while here was a short canoe trip in a lagoon at the park we visited where we saw some turtles and tad poles (or baby frogs as I call them!).
We are off to the Everglades on Friday, and after 2 days there, we head down to Key West, the birthplace of the Key Lime Pie!!!!!!! We then go down to La Isla Bonita, aka Ambergris Caye in Belize.
We promise to keep you guys updated :)
xoxo, Yasi and Andrew
