Ocean phlegm and other oddities

So we are leaving Florida soon, and I'm totally cool with that. I'm over the spring breakers yelling at all hours of the night, stepping over vomit on the beach, and being hooted at everytime I walk anywhere. God I'm old.

I've spent most of my time here working away on my new website. I'll post the link up soon if any of ya'll are interested. I'm finding it to be a frustrating process, but my comprehension of HTML has improved a smidgen. I'm still messing about with colours and whatnot, and annnyways.

I'm driving back to Canada with my parents, and I really don't know how to feel about this. Dreadful? Nostalgic? Excited? Time will tell. I went on a shit load of road trips when I was younger, so this brings to mind those days of yore, when I almost always had a great time. However, 20+ hours in the car? That'll be interesting.

We will be in Savannah on Saturday and I cannot even wait. I've been wanting to check out Savannah for a long time now.

I was going through my pictures that I have taken so far, and to be perfectly honest...there's not a whole lot to take pictures of here, so I have about 100 pictures of sunsets, which are nice and all but look more or less the same. Anyway! I've parred down the pictures to just these few.

It's weird,I've seen deer at home, in fact we have a plethora of then. Why then, was I entirely obsessed with capturing photos of deer in St. Andrews State Park? I have no idea. Wildlife in other places always seems so much cooler than wildlife in your hometown. I also took about 20 pictures of a duck before I was like, "what am I doing???"

I thought this Pelican was cool. These we don't have at home, so I'm allowed to take 20 pictures of it.

This breakfast caused me to never want to eat pancakes again in my entire life. Ever. For some reason, whenever I see something made with pecans, I immediately have to order it. So I ordered "pecan pancakes", which was fine and all, until she brought them to me. There were three pancakes that covered the entire plate, and I wanted to vom as soon as I saw them. I could barely eat one, let alone three. When the waitress came to collect the plates at the end of breakfast, she was like, "I guess next time you'll have to order a short stack honey!". I was like, a) there will be no next time, and b) I didn't even know that was an option, thank you for mentioning that while I was ordering. Never again.

I stared at this jellyfish for a long time before I realized what it was. At first I was like, what is this? Ocean phlegm? Then I got closer and you could see through its body. Still, gross creature. They look so cool whilst in the water, but on dry land? yukkk.

And there you have it! Two weeks worth of pictures! I'm off to tackle the wonderful world of websites again!

Meg, I'm a first-time visitor to your blog from Cleveland, OH.

I clicked-through to your blog from either CarissaJaded's.

I LOVE "ranting" blogs, and I enjoyed reading a few of your posts. So I decided to comment.

Anyway, I hope to visit back as well. Take care.

Sorry, my evil-twin must have taken over my post. I did see your link on CarissaJaded's. Not sure where I got the "either" from. Been that kind of day!

Beautiful pics! Love them!

Your comment about the spring breakers and being hollered at everywhere you go... I totally get it. I was just thinking the same thing the other day. That crap used to make my day when I was 18; now it just makes me want to punch someone in the face. lol :)

Well I'm glad you had a good time, but i cant imagine driving 20+ hrs with my rents. Just couldn't do it, so props to you. I also love pecans... and pecans pancakes but can see how that would be a little much. Can't wait to see your new site!

I'm with Carissa, how the hell do you put up with a 20 hour car trip with your parents?! Hahaha. Still, at least it's WARM! BTW, I meant to say, if you do sign up for the MatadorU, would you please use my affiliate banner on my blog? You'd be doing me a HUGE favour! And I'd owe you. FOREVER.
