SoFL, Volume 1

sunny 85 °F

I've raced storms to catch the sunset. Flown till 12:30 am to drive four and a half hours the next morning to visit enchanted castles and goblin banks. Been stormed away from a zoo by lightning. Ate the best tacos and drank cucumber margaritas while watching Germany win the World Cup. Burned on white sand beaches and swam in 75 degree Gulf waters.

It has been an eventfully good few days, and I'm loving every minute exploring Central and Southern FL!

The expansion of Harry Potter at Universal was phenomenal. The rides, you can only experience for yourself; I will not share the secret of how to get to platform 9 3/4 on the Hogwarts Express. I turn into a teenage fan when it comes to Harry Potter. Every new corner is another adventure. I can't believe I was able to experience it, (and even some Gilly water and Butterbeer ice cream) first hand on opening weekend. Walking through Diagon Alley truly felt like walking into Harry Potters world. This is the second time I've been to Universal to see the world of Harry Potter, and for that I consider myself very lucky; for there are fans who have never even set foot into Hogsmeade, let alone had the luck of visiting Diagon Alley, and I have been enchanted by it all. The butterbeer ice cream in a waffle cone is my personal recommendation!

We raced a storm last night to the end of Naples to catch a sunset over the Gulf after baking in the sun all day at Lowdermilk Park. Missed the Pier sunset because of the pesky storm but were offered a beautiful sunset tonight before heading down to Key Largo for a few days of snorkeling and exploring.

So, before I procrastinate any longer on packing for our jump to the Keys, I'll leave with some of my favorite pictures from last night and tonight. I hope you enjoy them second hand as much as I did firsthand!
