We left mom's house right after she got off work. (I get off work earlier than she does, so I was already waiting for her when she got home.) After 2 1/2 hours of driving, without ever running out of topics to talk about, we checked into the timeshare around 9:30 pm. We had a quick dinner, then a late night session of knitting before realizing that we needed to be up early. Oops.
We still managed to wake up in time to enjoy a cup of coffee as we watched the sunrise from our balcony.
Mom went off to her seminar, and I had the entire day in front of me. I spent the morning on the beach. I walked until I was tired, knitted until I got bored, then walked a little more.
I spent the afternoon exploring the historic Beach Street Riverfront Marketplace. Of course, I had an ulterior motive:
(I recommend taking the factory tour and tasting the chocolate-covered potato chips!)
Mom took me out to dinner before we left for home as an apology for making me sit around bored all day, just so that I could drive her there and back. I hope I get the chance to be bored sitting on Daytona Beach again real soon!
