Florida Vacation Photo Album

Our week in Florida was amazing! It’s such a treat to leave the Canadian Winter behind in February and go south. It’s so strange to get off the plane and be in warm sunshine! Here are some pictures from the trip…

We rented a hybrid Ford Fusion at the Orlando Airport. At first it was too complicated for me as I am used to an Analog car but once I got the hang of it we loved the quiet ride and sunroof!

As we approached the Toll Plaza outside of Orlando we had a wonderful reception of tiny birds who seemed to be coming close to the cars probably because they are used to have people giving them treats.

Visiting the exposed walls of the coral quarry was interesting. Ancient seas had once been where we stood and the fossil designs were intriguing!

The week went so fast! At the Orlando Airport, watching the planes land and take-off it soothes the pain of leaving to know that Florida is only a few hours away!
