I literally just got back from a 14 hour drive from Panama City Beach, Florida after an 8 day vacation with a few friends and one of their moms. It was a blast. There's just so much to talk about that I don't even know where to start.
We drove down to Florida from Arkansas (where we live). We got to the condo just in time to get everything out of the vehicles then head to Mellow Mushroom Pizza for dinner. That has got to be some of the best pizza I have ever had... EVER!
The next few days were just filled with random trips to the beach and shopping (I got myself a nice pair of Oakley sunglasses). We also rented a few skimboards so we could learn how to do that. Skimboarding, by the way, is a very easy way to get injured. No, i didn't break any bones so far as I know, but I did sprain my right wrist and my left ankle. I also cut up the top of m left foot while attempting a stupid trick. Otherwise, it was some of the most fun that I had on the trip. It takes a while to learn, but if you keep with it, it's awesome. Sorry, i'm rambling.
The last two days were a little more exciting because I got to go on one of the Jet Ski Dolphin Tours. It was a 2 hour tour around Panama City Beach and we got to stop on Shell Island to pick up starfish and sand-dollars. We also go to stop out at a little spot where a few dolphins like to hang out to see what all of the people are there for (little do they know that the people are there to see them... hehe). We swam with them for a few minutes, then headed back to the docks. It was AWESOME!
I forgot to mention that the condo we stayed in was one of the coolest places I have stayed. We were in a 2 bedroom condo with everything you would need in a home. It came with a full kitchen with all of the dishes and silverware, 2 huge bathrooms, a laundry room, and a fold-out couch for a few of the people who were with us. One of the coolest parts though in my opinion had to be the bed that I stayed in. I don't know if any of you watch Bleach the anime, but in that show one of the characters (Rukia) stays in a bed in the closet of one of the other characters (Ichigo). I had a bed just like that. So yes... I came out of the closet every morning. HAH!!
So that was pretty much my trip in a nutshell. Now i just need to go through the crapload of new submissions and other journals before I pass out.... Or maybe I'll do it tomorrow. I don't know yet.
