Blast From The Past... The Beaches aka Last Day in Florida

Well we're now up to Thursday of my trip to Florida, and my last full day in paradise (well paradise to a sun and heat starved Canadian!)

Claire and I started out our day with a trip to every stitcher's favourite place... the needlework store! We hit A Stitch in Time and must of spent at least an hour and a half there! Claire was organized and had a shopping list. I wasn't, so I was in serious browse mode. I must say my haul was quite disappointing for such a large shop. Either I must have it all (not likely) or as I assume designers just aren't putting out much that suits my tastes. I left the shop with two small charts, a Heinzit and a JBW, and a few specialty fibers.

Needlework shopping is a very exhausting activity so Claire and I just had to go to the nearby mall to have lunch. Oh and do a little more shopping of course! We followed up our shopping trip with a walk on two of the area beaches. Frist we went to Jax Beach followed by Atlantic Beach.

It was beautiful at the beach!

I got this guy at just the right moment!

This is my first run-in with a jellyfish... what an ugly bugger!

As you can see Claire was really enjoying the sun!

My evening was spent doing laundry, and packing my bag for the trip back North in the morning!

I think any beach would look good to us Canadians right now :) Lovely bigs and I agree that Jelly fish is really ugly! I have never seen one that close either. Yuck. Looks beautiful at the beaches.
