Florida Rental House

This is the rental house I booked for my trip to the Florida Gulf Coast in October:

There are now just 4 of us going, but we're all of us girls, so we can still have lots of fun without worrying about what girls worry about when boys are present in the same house. The people I'm vacationing with are all GMs for my company at different stores, and they are the best group of people. I really enjoy their company. We are just completely excited to be going.

And then, when that part of the trip is over, we hop over the bay and get to stay in a bayfront hotel in Tampa for another couple of nights during the conference/meeting.

When I was younger, we didn't have much money for traveling, so I only dreamed about getting to go places and see things that some of the other kids did. We certainly weren't deprived, and we did take some close-to-home vacations, but my parents didn't see the wisdom in getting into credit card debt just to finance a trip to Disney World, NYC, or DC. I have very smart parents.

I love to go on road trips around the country. I have been to Florida two times before, but I've never rented a house ON THE BEACH, with it's own hot tub, pool, deck, grill, and did I say it's ON THE BEACH! Yes, indeed, it's ON THE BEACH! I want to see dolphins, collect shells, go bobbing up and down on a cheap raft in the Gulf, make sandcastles on the sugar white sand, grill steaks, drink margaritas, talk with my friends, watch the sunsets, take pretty pictures, and just thoroughly enjoy myself.

Life is indeed good.

The place looks quite nice, I hope you enjoy it. What exactly do girls worry about when boys are present?

My parents didn't see the wisdom in spending the $10 it would cost to go into SFO. I have very cheap parents.

You better send me a shell.

Cat, I'll definitely send you a shell. Schell, would you like a shell, too? bwah hah hah, schell/shell....ha ha ha, um yeah. Anyway, whoever wants a shell, speak up now, so I know how many nice beautiful ones to gather. Delivery of shell contingent on the ability of the gulf to cough them up for me to gather.

i couldn't find schells on the beach when i went a ew months ago. one morning i got up before dawn and saw a man on a large tractor raking the sand to clear washed up debris and that pretty much summed that up for me.

i'm sad you won't be staying with nags...

REspighi, I know that area of Florida--I lived in Clearwater for about five years. The beaches are fab.

If you find a pretty shell for me, I'd love one, but don't knock yourself out. Have a lovely, lovely time for yourself!

What I want to know is what do girls worry about when boys are in the house?
