One of the most unique islands in Greece, Santorini (known as Fira) is a destination not to be missed. A heaven for photographers, artists, epicureans, and historians; there’s adventures on this island for everyone. Inspired by my travels and this manuscript I am currently finishing up, I made a list: Seven Ways to Rock Your Santorini Stay.
We headed out from Crystal River for some saltwater fishing with the kids. It had been a week since hurricane Hermine swept through and there was still a Fort Island Beach Closed Until Further Notice sign on highway 19 near the Plantation Inn. It wasn’t until we had reached the mouth of Crystal River, just shy of Shell Island that we found out why…
I was doing research for my next post on saltwater fishing when I stumbled across this: According to Florida’s boating regulations, it is mandatory for anyone born in 1988 or later to have a boater safety card. The courses for certification range from $14.95 to $29.95, but for kids 12 to 18, there is a free option available!
We had a summer filled with adventures, but this year was different, because this year we had some adventures that left me lukewarm. I must confess, we learned the hard way: not all tour guides are created equal.
Today Hermine, our coastal tropical storm gathered her skirts and grew fiercer. Now with winds of 75 miles per hour, Hermine graduated to a Category 1 hurricane status.
Morning guys! This is a quick missive, as I am rushing about, getting prepped for the tropical storm headed our way. The entire coast of Florida from Tampa to the panhandle is under the Tropical Storm watch. I’ve been filling up water jugs in case the electric goes out. No electric = no water pump (meaning no water!).
As the 450th Birthday of America’s oldest city comes to an end (they will be 451 in September!), It’s time for a review of the best family adventures that St. Augustine has to offer, from fabulous beaches and sunset sails to chilling ghost hunts.
Today’s dose of daily inspiration. “Life was meant to be lived…”
