We did, however; encounter a little problem when, while taking the backroads, we couldn't find anywhere to get lunch. For almost two hours I fed Eleanor every snack I had brought along and I was beginning to think we would have to pull over to get some of the corn from the fields to feed my hungry little girl. Eventually, we found a Subway and everything was fine.
Our first stop in Florida was to pick up Andy and Philly Bob at the new airport just a few miles from the beach. (He had a good idea to fly!) The airport was so new in fact, our GPS's (ours and Mark's) couldn't pick it up and we had to call a friend to find it for us on their computer. Thanks Martin! We finally made it to the beach and our condo at the Aqua Beach Resort.
At first, Eleanor was a little apprehensive about the sand and the water, but she eventually warmed up to it and loved playing on the beach. She especially loved building a sandcastle with Daddy.
