spring break 2011

My spring break came together when my new schedule and a planned trip to Florida aligned just right.

It started Feb 23 and went to Mar 9. There were 15 days where I only had three shifts at the Red Cross.

It started Wednesday the 23rd. Wednesdays are always good. Usually they start with Mass and then bringing communion to a friend. There is a break, usually meaning a trip to the beach. The day continues with some piano lessons.

Thursday was a morning to lounge, we eventually made it to the beach and had brunch at Doc Taylor’s. Once again, more lessons.

Friday I went to donate platelets. Kerri and I grabbed lunch at our favorite Mexican place and went to the Chrysler Museum. That night we went to see “Just Go With It”

Saturday was the first of three working days.

Sunday I went to Mass, and Kerri and I went to an ODU Lady Monarchs game. Kerri’s parents came in town and stayed down by the beach. We went to see them and got dinner and went for a swim at the hotel.

Monday we looked at some houses (our lease is up in May) and then there were more lessons and another swim.

Tuesday was second of three shifts and Kerri’s folks left town.

Back to another Wednesday, which followed the same as above. It is my favorite day of the week.

Thursday was my third and final working day. After work I had lessons. Late that night we left for Florida.

We got to the line at noon, but traffic was heavy going to St. Petersburg. We got there by the end of the day, just enough time for a swim. My parents took us out for dinner.

Saturday we went to Mass and then the city’s morning market. Later we went to Fort DeSoto for a swim in the gulf. I got a conch shell in good condition. We went to Crabby Bill’s for dinner. Mom went with us to Al Lang Stadium for a baseball game. The Netherlands beat Canada 8-0. Kerri got one of the shirts in the crowd for me.

More to follow…
