Florida – Flagler Beach

On Monday, I arrived in Flagler Beach/Palm Coast.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flagler_Beach,_Florida)

I’d love to write that I am on my way on a great trip, but sadly, I cannot.  My Aunt, who I loved to the moon and back, died.  The family was gathering for the funeral on Tuesday morning.

My immediate family and I met at a restaurant on the beach for dinner – to relax after the four hour drive across the state (from south of Tampa).  The restaurant had a large patio with great views.  Two members of my family use walkers, so it was nice to have a place where they could enjoy the beach without struggling to move in the sand.

I wasn’t expecting to take pictures this trip, but fortunately had my old camera with  me.  Here are some pictures from the patio…

Florida – Anna Maria Island

Yesterday, I traveled to Manatee Beach on Anna Maria Island.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Maria_Island)

It was a cold noon time, with the temperature between 45 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit.  The beach is usually very crowded, but yesterday, there were few people.  Everyone I met was a visitor from cold country (northern Illinois, Colorado, near Minneapolis,  Niagara Falls, Ft. Wayne, Rapid City, Vermont, and Buffalo).  They said they would gladly accept a cold day in Florida over the ridiculously cold temperatures they left back home.  (Most people mentioned temperatures below zero!)

The sun was shining and the beach was lovely….

Pennsylvania – Lake Erie (Erie & Lake City)

I visited two areas along Lake Erie in Pennsylvania.   (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Erie)

My first visit was to Erie, Pennsylvania.    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erie,_Pennsylvania)

Went to Lake Erie as the sun was setting….  ( I believe I was at one of the beaches of Presque Isle.   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presque_Isle_State_Park)

I also visited Lake City – a small town area southwest of Erie.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_City,_Pennsylvania)

It is a nice, natural area.  I stayed in a gorgeous, small house on a hill, overlooking the Lake.  The house was surrounded by trees…
