Spring Break!

I mentioned in my last post that I will be going down to Miami for spring break and to Key West, and then back up north to Panama City, all over the course of 5 days. Well, it didn’t go exactly as planned but it was definitely a spring break to remember! Here’s what happened…

We drove down to Miami as planned Friday night; or should I say Saturday morning since it was past midnight when we left Tallahassee, around 3am. I don’t know if that was such a great idea but it was the earliest we could go based on my friends’ and my schedules. We were headed to Miami Airport first to drop a friend off there. I must say it was not the safest of rides as my friend who was driving was a little drowsy. Half way down to Miami we stopped at a resting area and got something to eat/drink. The driver took a quick 20 minute nap to restore some energy, but that did not really help. Only one other person was eligible to drive so she took the helm. Our new driver was not as drowsy but she was only going to get us to Miami airport because she was the one we were dropping off there. The original driver took a long nap till we got close to the airport so he was good to drive after that. However, the anticipated 8 hour drive turned into a 11ish hour drive as the closer we got to the airport, the worse the traffic was. After being stuck in traffic for about an hour and barely moving, we decided to take another, longer route. We eventually got there and were finally headed towards a friend from FILC’s house. Who would have thought we would be close enough to the people we met at FILC that we ended up spending spring break with them. We met many of them down in Miami and we had such a great time! Miami Beach is such a beautiful beach and the road that runs along it, Ocean’s Drive is filled with great restaurants and hotels. The beach is always packed and there are many beach volleyball courts and other casual sports going on everywhere. Just being there has this positive, happy feeling in the air. That is basically what happened in Miami, a few great days spent on the beach, swimming, tanning, etc. I however, was bitten by some sort of creature in the shallow water; or probably a little crab pinched me. It wasn’t too bad though, just a little shocking at the moment. One restaurant in particular I must mention is called Shake Shack. The single best burger I have ever had. Sadly, Shake Shack is only located in Miami and New York City. That was the end of our Miami trip and we ended up not going to Key West just because we decided the beach was just as fun and we were tired of long drives; Key West was about 3 hours away from Miami.

 So we went back to Tallahassee, and again, the drive was exhausting. Instead of going to Panama City the next day, we

Panama City Beach. As you can see, very few people are in the freezing water.

stayed in Tally for 2 quiet days to rest up and then went to Panama City Friday morning and got back that same day at night. Panama City turned out to be such a beautiful city. The beach there was extremely tempting so despite the freezing water and windy weather, we could not resist the temptation of the water. It was begging us to jump in. We did, but did not stay in the water for long, as it was just way too cold. The beach was more crammed than in Miami, and more action packed, with sponsored events going on throughout the day. We spent the day on the beach, just like we did in Miami but it was a whole different experience, equally fun. That was pretty much the end of spring break as Saturday and Sunday were transition days where you try to set your mind set back to school mode. What better way is there to spend your spring break than chilling on the beach all break long? None! But now it’s time to focus on school as there is just a little more than a month before summer!!
