On the road

April 9, 2012

I’m way late to the party but better late than never I always say. It’s been a busy few days but in a good way. The kids had a mini Spring Break over the Easter weekend so I’ve had them home from Thursday on… tomorrow they head back to school. With them being home I spent more time with them than online or blogging… which is as it should be, right? Anyways, we went swimming almost daily, had fun doing Easter things and just enjoyed our time together. I love my kiddos and I love spending time with them when there is no drama…

Here now my contribution to Stasha’s Monday Listicles... the theme for this week is The Road. I dug through the pictures of our recent travels, roadtrips to Tampa, daytrips along A1A and some from our trip through the heart of Florida along SR 60.

Heading into West Palm Beach


Palm trees lining the streets heading into Palm Beach.


Driving along A1A in Palm Beach County... view of Lake Worth.


It's rare to see the Turnpike this empty.


Cows and hey bales along SR 60 in Florida.


Viewing a bridge opening from the Jupiter Lighthouse in Jupiter, Fl.


Entrance to Ybor City in Tampa, Fl.


Sunset viewed from the car on I-75, west coast of Fl.


One of my favorite bridges in Florida. The Sunshine Skyway in St. Petersburg, Fl.


Heading onto the Sunshine Skyway... hubby hates it, I love it.


Our favorite mode of transportation in Tampa... the trolley cars.



Hope you enjoyed your trip along the roads I have traveled in recent months!

    Great photos! Cannot wait to show my son bridge photos when he wakes up tomorrow. He will go gaga over them!

      I take it he likes bridges? This one is a beaut… My husband absolutely hates driving over it because it’s so high. I on the other hand adore it. 🙂

    I have some great memories of your neck of the woods. These photos brought me back to my time in college.

    • Susi April 10, 2012 at 2:04 pm

      Oh I’m so glad. And happy you have fond memories. We actually live on the East Coast of Fl but love travelling to Tampa.

    I love road trips! I’ve never been to Florida, but it looks beautiful. You always post the most amazing photos. I passed on the lovely award you gave me today, and I gave you one back. Even though you’ve already received it, I thought you deserved it twice. 🙂

    • Susi April 10, 2012 at 2:02 pm

      Thank you Melissa, I appreciate you thinking of me!!! 🙂 I enjoy sharing my photos.

    Those all look like fun adventures! I love all the palm trees in that one shot!

    • Susi April 10, 2012 at 9:37 pm

      Even after living here all this time I never get tired of seeing the palm trees. The big ones are usually Royal Palms and they are actually not native to Florida.

    We have a bridge here in Charleston that looks just like that one from the side. Not the approach view, but the panoramic view. So pretty!! Gosh I love those tall, tall palm trees. The ones here are nice, but they don’t compare!! I hope you have/had a nice trip!!

    • Susi April 10, 2012 at 9:38 pm

      Yes, we’ve had some pretty great and amazing trips. And I love the tall palm trees, too. Never get tired of them.

  • Rebecca April 10, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    I’ve never ridden a trolley, but they look like such fun!

    • Susi April 10, 2012 at 10:14 pm

      They are so fun. The kids love it. You can move the backs of the benches so that a family of four Or five can sit facing each other. The kids love doing that. 🙂

    Great pictures. I think the bridge would freak me out, my husband would love it…
    Grüße aus Kanada 😉

    • Susi April 12, 2012 at 9:02 pm

      Thanks. We are the other way around… the bridge absolutely freaks my husband out. I on the other hand really love it. Gruesse zurueck aus Florida!!! 🙂
