Home Again

So I snuck out of town for about 10 days. You didn't even realize I was gone, did you? Hmmmm, I tried to plan it that way, what with all these thievin' peeps on the Internet. You don't want to reveal too much, huh?
Geez I am so not wired that way.
Anyhoo, here is a photo show of my trip:

The drive. I participated very little in the actual driving part. I really don't like to drive very much. In fact, if I won the lottery, I think I would hire a chauffeur, that is how little I really like to drive. Whenever possible, I sat in the backseat with my friend Julie and we watched videos while the men handled the actual navigation and driving part.

Sketches. I was playing with some watercolor pencils and doing quick sketches. It felt really good to allow my drawing muscles to come out. They are feeble at best, but it was fun. And it reminded me of how much I really need to draw. Julie and I set up a quasi-studio in our rental house and we made some arty things each day while the men solved all the world's problems. They also cooked for us, how lucky are we, huh??
Patterns. You know how I love patterns. This was a light at the hotel on the way home. I think I see a stencil in my future.
Pelicans, they were everywhere. Such amazing birds, I caught this one on my iPhone believe it or not. 
Yes, we were in Florida. No, it wasn't warm. Maybe 2-3 days of warm weather, but I had to buy more clothing at the consignment shop, that is how cold it was. Luckily the sun was shining. And we did have a lot of fun.
