Always look on the bright side of life. (Monty Python)

Last night my mom and I drove to Daytona Beach. Mom was attending a tax seminar, and didn't want to travel alone. Naturally I jumped at the chance to take a trip away somewhere, even if it was just a quick one-day event.

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:

YARN
(She Sells Yarn)

and CHOCOLATE
(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!

That's MY favorite LYS! Isn't Kathleen wonderful?

So, what did you buy?

Glad you had a chance to "do" Beach St. If you get down again, don't miss a meal at Ivey Lane. It's wonderful.
