This past weekend was spent traveling through 13 FL counties. It was great fun minus the little bit of traffic on 295 in Jax. Oh, well.
Started out in Orange City, then Deland, then Ormond Beach to hang out with Thomas and Joy. I miss them and we just hung out on the beach and ate pizza and talked - it was great way to start the weekend. They live in TX now so its not like this is a normal occurrence. I'm very thankful for their constant friendship and godly wisdom they have poured into my life the last 7 years.
Then to St. Aug to hang out with Regina for a brief moment and enjoy a coconut bubble tea from Cafe 11. Not as good as Chai's - but I love coconut!
Then the traffic came! Oh, well - at least I had good music in Shane and Shane.
Got to eat Cracker Barrel and TCBY in Lake City with Sarah before going out to her house. Her house is so quiet and surrounded by trees - you gotta love it.
The next day we got up early for our 60 mile bike ride to High Springs and back. We ate at a place called Nells in Branford which is a small town country place. Her dad rode with us for a bit and he made it fun as he was like a little kid. Thank you Mr. Humphries for your gracious spirit with us all day. We then got going. We ate at a diner (Floyd's in High Springs) for lunch with her Mom and neice. We then started back. It was fun, rewarding, hot - but worth it.
Then on Sunday we floated down the Ichetucknee which I hadn't done since my last summer with the youth at Anastasia (99). It was cold and refreshing. Everyone needs to do that.
Then we watched a movie - and I headed back home. So, I loved my great outdoors weekend!
Thank you Sarah and family, the Whites, Regina - to making it possible!
