I haven’t posted anything in about a month as all we’ve really been doing is working. Honestly, I never believed working as a college professor was as time consuming as it is. I’ve been putting in easily 60 to 80 hour weeks and I still don’t feel like I’m keeping up. I’m just hoping things slow down next semester a little bit.
Anyway, I did want to post to get some suggestions. After the break-neck pace of this semester, Debi and I have decided we are going to visit at least a few places in Florida over our winter break to get to know the area a bit better and to do some general sightseeing and relaxing. So, does anyone out there have any suggestions? There is just one ground rule – nothing related to Disney (no Epcot, DisneyWorld, I-want-to-blow-my-money-on-fantasy-Disney, etc.)! Other than that, we are open for suggestions and hopefully will have some fun stories to tell as a result.

There is a lot to do and see in St. Augustine. We went there last summer for a few days and had a blast. There is the old fort to wander around, some decent restaurants, and the old part of town has a lot of funky shops to peruse. Sure, you can spend money in ’em too, if you’re inclined. We could have stayed much longer than the 3 days we did. I was a bit wary of visiting the city’s alligator park, but it was actually better than I expected by far, and a good change of pace from the shops and fort.
One other thing to do is visit Okeefenokee swamp. It is a fascinating place, and definitely different from our dry, high desert that we grew up in. Although… last time I went there (a few months ago) it was awfully dry itself. Still, it was very interesting.
I remember you mentioning you were headed down there over the summer. We’ll have to swing by and let you know what we think.
