April Flowers

It’s nice to see these tropical colors blooming again, but the summers are long here and the hurricane season begins on June 1st. We don’t usually see hurricane threats to our area until August and September though. It’s just part of living in Florida.

For now, we will just enjoy the end of April, which means beautiful temperatures, convertible rides, and dining out by the pool. Happy Spring!

Car battery fail

But my wrap sandwich is waiting for me at Publix… it’s just that kind of day. You just have to laugh at these moments.

Ocean art relaxation

Art journal time at Ormond Beach… surfside studio

Living in Florida has its perks. I decided to drive out to Ormond Beach and visit my sister while she was camping with her family oceanside at the Coral Sands Resort. The weather was so lovely, and we even got in a bit of sketching and painting too.

As usual, I brought half the art studio, and I only used 1/10th of the materials I hauled in my art tote. You can never have too many options, ya know? 😉

Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

One of our favorite places to get outdoor exercise is Epcot at Magic Kingdom. Since we are Florida Passholders, we have the opportunity to enjoy the parks on a regular basis–at our own speed, and we can pick the best weather days! We truly appreciate the flexibility and freedom to visit the Disney parks in this manner. No stress. And when we get tired, we can go home!

Right now Epcot is having their Flower and Garden Festival, and we look forward to it every year. Here are some photos I took during our recent visits.
