Welcome to Florida

Road Trip

Who knows how many times we have stopped at this rest area on I-75-S, the official Florida Welcome Center. This time we saw a couple taking pictures of each other by the sign. We offered to take photos of the two of them and then they took our photo too! There aren’t too many things that would lure us to The Sunshine State in August but a family reunion in honor of Karen’s parents’ 65th Wedding Anniversary is one. Even as we were taking our break, we were getting text messages from family members as they were landing at various airports. Let the party begin!

Magerøya Island

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
