Love on the beach.. and hubbie was there too!

I write this from my comfy chair in the business lounge of Dubai airport. Normally my flights are so well timed that all I get time for is a quick shower and I'm off on the next leg... but things went all 'Pete Tong' (thats rhyming slang to my American readers for wrong!) when Jet Blue's 1st flight of the day out of Orlando was 1 1/2 hrs delayed... I'll tell you the rest this week... but I find myself with 5 hours to kill (I've only been travelling 36hrs so far!) and need to do something to keep me away from the fresh donuts they just bought out!

SO ... here is my blog on my romantic getaway with hubbie and Gary to Cape San Blas, FL for a long weekend to celebrate out 7th wedding anniversary.. we always do something special to celebrate... Its a beautiful place, if a little painstaking to get to (6 hrs in the car - I can get here and back to Jamaica in 4!) but we had a wonderful relaxing time walking on the beach and generally chilling out.

My blogging friend, Duane, told me the other day that everytime he visits my blog he gets jealous of my life...  My parents instilled a travel bug in me when I was younger so I always make an effort to go places, with family still in the UK I get to visit there quite frequently, and now I'm on my way to Australia for work.. its not really glamourous, but it is different and I sometimes dont appreciate that other people don't have the opportunities that I do ... Enjoy the pics, I'll be back to you when I finally arrive in Aus!

Hi guys... thanks for visiting..

The Cape is gorgeous if you are ever out that way... and Gary loved the beach.. even though it was difficult to see him the 1st morning in the mist!

I love the family shot and the fact that Gary has his tongue stuck out in defiance! Looks like you have a fab weekend chick.
