My Florida Vacation

I had such a great time in Florida! I was there for about nine days. I went there with my mom and aunts. We stayed in a beautiful vacation rental home in Bradenton for most of the time. It had a great pool and patio and it was on a small lake. My mom and I also stayed in Tampa for two days. Some of the other places we went to were: Anna Maria Island, Sarasota, St. Petersburg, Hard Rock Casino in Tampa, and Honeymoon Island State Park. My favorite place we went to was John's Pass by Madeira Beach. It's a converted old fishing village with a boardwalk. It has sightseeing and rental boats, new shops, restaurants, dolphins, and it's right across from a beautiful beach. I spent so much time watching the dolphins....I could have just watched them all day!

This is John's Pass above, and Madeira Beach below. I love the ocean so much, listening to the waves, and finding sea shells. I would just love to live there someday, except I don't like the critters. We saw a Black Indigo snake and quite a few lizards, even a couple in the pool area. I'm just so not used to that! I didn't get to see any alligators. Maybe next time! I took so many photos, I can't wait to start scrapbooking them!

  1. Sounds like a great vacation! My grandparents used to live in Palmetto and then Bradenton. Brings back memories of spending time with them. Love, love, love Anna Maria Island! Glad you had a fun time. :)
