One of the best things about our trip to Florida, was getting to drive thru Atlanta and see this pretty girl (and my family of course). It has been almost a year since I have seen her. Now, don't be thinking that I am a horrible daughter for not visiting my family more, but they just enjoy Nashville so much that they usually come here. Of course, Ivy is not so lucky with being a 2oo pound dog that get's car sick the second she gets in (yes, she really weighs in at 200 and something).
So, in order to see her I have to go where she is and let me just tell you I was beyond delighted that she remembered me.. of course I never really thought she would have forgotten me, being that I was her sleeping partner for years. (you have not shared a bed, until you share one with a great dane) the only thing greater then seeing Ivy, was seeing Guitar Hero around her.. he is more a cat person then a dog person and being around a dog the size of a pony made him a bit uncomfortable which made Ivy even more interested in him. Let's just say... it was priceless.
I could not believe how many types of birds there were at Clearwater. There were big, tall, short, fat, ones with mohawks, ones with funny sounds, ones that acted like thieves... expect they really were thieves. Yup, you guessed it. We had to keep an eye on the crows every time we went into the water because they would swarm over in groups and start picking apart our stuff. I was so worried they were going to run off with our keys (yes, we hid them but the way they were pulling things out it would not have mattered). You would not believe how strong there little beaks are. I mean these birds were picking up my skirt and guitar hero's shirt just to get to the food. It was just unreal and a bit annoying, honestly.
After Disney World we made a pit stop at clearwater beach for some sun. Although, most of the time it was cloudy and overcast it was still a very relaxing day.. which we both needed after Disney. The weather also made for a nice quite day at the beach... which I loved! I just wish we could have stayed longer but I don't know how my pale skin would have felt about that.
