Greetings Friends! Last week I was invited to vacation with my Mom in Hollywood, Florida. I don't travel often so this was an unexpected blessing. The sound of the waves, the ocean air, our toes in the sand--what a treat! If you could use a virtual escape, come along........
However, I was up with the sun the following morning and the sky was clear!
Here's the view from our room balcony later that afternoon...
...enjoying it with my Mom. Look at that turquoise water!
Hollywood is near Ft. Lauderdale and according to the locals, it was unseasonably warm this year. There was definitely no Fall like weather, so we made the most of our mornings. We ate breakfast al fresco near the beach, then strolled or lounged until it was too hot in the sun.
Loved these striped mini cabanas!
Our hotel is on the left. We enjoyed a gorgeous view, extremely comfy beds, excellent service and the best fish tacos I ever ate! This pretty pink stucco was on our right.
This charming little trolley had a stop right near our hotel and took us downtown. Our driver was very friendly and quite the character :)
How cute is this mosaic sea turtle?
Bubble tent, anyone? I had never seen one of these before!
We thought these shore birds were a type of gull but I have since learned they are terns. I like their black and white markings.
Sunset, sigh....... Thanks Mom!
Hope you have a relaxing week!
