We've enjoyed chilling at our Siesta Key Bungalows all weekend. There are little lizards everywhere, and, as long as they're not jumping out at me, I enjoy hunting for them to snap photos. We had a gecko visit us in our bungalow yesterday.
Our rental complex is filled with palm trees and has a running fountain. At the lagoon, there is a dock to stand at to watch local birds (ducks, pelicans, and more) as well as jumping fish. One bird makes a really loud call, and Oliver gets excited whenever he hears it. He tells me it's a monkey, and that he loves the monkey. Along the lagoon, they built a sandy area for sitting and relaxing. Oliver enjoys filling his bucket and dumping it back out.
I originally created this blog as a travel journal for my backpacking trip in Europe in May of 2006. Using the blog was such a positive experience--it became a log of my itinerary and allowed friends and family to follow me on my travels--that I decided to keep it going. My vacationing experience has evolved from traveling with friends to traveling with my husband to traveling with our children. I hope you enjoy reading about my travels, and please feel free to email me with any questions.... full info
