postcards from my latest road trip

I was fortunate to be able to hitch a ride down south with a friend from work (along with his dad, niece, and great niece...the latter of whom was throwing up in the seat right next to mine the entire ride down). We visited Tampa, St. Petersburg, Madeira Beach, and Santa Rosa Island. There was one day where it was sunny and warm...the rest of the week was pretty chilly, with freezing rain and even some snow on the way back! Once we were homeward bound we detoured a bit so we could take a drive by the Crossroads and Graceland (it was the middle of the night, so we didn't stop). It was a quick trip that didn't include much sight seeing or beach going, but it was still nice to venture off the peninsula for a little while.
We stopped for gas in Mississippi and stumbled upon this old little trailer park. I'd totally live there, I mean, look at that Spanish Moss! It makes even the trashiest trailer park atmospheric and lovely!
 Little dome house on the gulf coast. This one was on Navarre Beach. I would love to see inside one of those little guys!
 Storm rolling in over Santa Rosa Island. It was about forty degrees, but we stopped to walk on the beach anyways. Santa Rosa Island is probably my favorite place I've ever traveled to. I'm so lucky to have been able to visit again.

That was quite a road trip! My imagination is too good. I had trouble keeping from imagining that throwing up smell (eewwww). The sights look pretty. I've never been to Mississippi or Santa Rosa Island or most of the places in between. It looks nice. Your mention of it caused me to recollect my whistle-stop visit of the island of Captiva on Florida's West Coast 35 or so years ago (and driving across Alligator Alley on my way there). Your photos with the clouds in them are excellent and interesting.

haha ahh no, not the barfing kid! though it seems like she didn't put too much of a damper on the road trip. I've always wanted to go to Graceland, and Spanish moss is hella dreamy. More postcards, please :)
