We flew down to Orlando on March 1st and rented a car and drove
over to the Cape to stay with my other sister Elaine and her husband Tom
for a week. They live in a townhome complex right on the beach.
Elaine is my half sister and her health is not the best.
She cannot walk on her own anymore and her memory
is getting poor. Even though she was mixed up from
time to time, she never forgot who I was!
Elaine, my nephew Tom, my brother-in-law Tom, Errin and I
at Grills for lunch. They have the best breakfasts and the best
seafood. Yum! I love Grills!
We can watch the cruise ships go out because we're right by
Port Canaveral. Here goes the Disney ship!

I can't wait until I can see flowers here at home
but this was a nice taste of spring.

alligators and a rattlesnake!

I think I could used to eating in such elegance, couldn't you?

with stores, restaurants and candy/ice cream shops.
I saw this pair of shoes just sitting there when we
first arrived and I couldn't resist taking a photo of them.
I wonder if their owner was walking around barefoot.
Cute, aren't they?
my own nails but I did a pretty good job, if I do say so!
walk on the beach at sunrise every single day we were there.
Heh heh, not really...

that we saw on our morning walk. Isn't he handsome
with his beautiful plumage, black legs and gold feet?
We are back home now. Back to reality of cold and snow for a few more weeks at least. I don't care because we had a fantastic trip. Elaine and I shared many special moments. My favorites were when we prayed together when she went to bed at night. Errin and I had a wonderful time together as well. It was her first visit to Florida and I enjoyed showing her around. I love my family and am blessed that we were able to visit, connect and create special memories.
