Travel: Holiday Isle Oceanfront

Yum
Traveling to the brick laid streets of historic Saint Augustine, Florida? Are you just escaping the Northern chill? If you want to enjoy the sandy beaches and sun but still want to stay close to town try the Holidayisle Oceanfront Resort
 Need a little encouragement? How about these views?? 
 After a 17 hour car ride/drive this was such a sight! Living in New York has advantages but nothing really beats the first time you lay eyes on a sunny beach. Not seeing the sun for months at a time can really take it out of you.

Travel: Wild Florida, Wildlife Park

Yum
I have visited Kissimmee Florida ever since I was a small child. Not once had I seen cattle or farmlands similar to those back in Western New York like I did on the way to Wild Florida Wildlife Park. Once we got there we were welcomed by a gigantic sign, photo opt!!
After we checked in for our Air boat tour we decided to wait in the Wildlife Park. We first set off through the Hawk Swamp. This park is rather large and requires time. We could have spent all day there and wished we had! 
Although we did not see any hawks, we did see several creatures both flying, crawling and slithering. This is a lovely escape and worth a gander.

Recipe: Party Cheese Trays

Yum
 I have thrown a lot of parties over the years and I have a few staple go-to dishes for our guests. 
Party Cheese Trays are my secret weapon and I thought I would share some of my creations with you!
What you will need:
Cheese (any types or kinds you enjoy)
Crackers (grab all sorts of shapes and sizes)
mini sausage or pepperoni
Platter or tray
Layer, layer and layer. I never have a pattern i stick to because all the cheese and cracker we get tend to be different shapes, sizes and flavors. I think that is what makes these trays look so appealing with different colors and textures!

Travel: St. Augustine Lighthouse

Yum
If you do happen to go out of the St. Augustine Historic district they have several must-see places. The St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum has always been on our list to visit. This year we finally had the chance, here are some of our experiences whilst there.
We got extra lucky and parked right upfront.
After we walked through the gift shop and got our tickets we walked out back. The trail leads to a play area for children and this magnificent sight.

Travel: Scenic Cruise, Florida

Yum
I have personally loved the brick laid streets of Saint Augustine. This year we decided to enjoy new things on our visit. 
We Started our morning off with a Scenic cruise. They have several in the harbor you can choose from but I recommend booking for an early departure. This gives you the best chance of enjoying dolphins! 
We enjoyed some dolphins by the boat before our scenic tour even began. Many tours give views of the Castillo De San Marcos and  you just might see a gator or eagle hanging out!
