Jason and I celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary last week! We were able to spend 3 nights (alone!) in Treasure Island, Florida which is near St. Petersburg. We had such a wonderful time, it was really hard to come back home! We ended up leaving on the tail end of Hurricane Matthew as it was passing by Florida. We were heading over to the western side of the state and so we weren’t really affected by the hurricane, but we did have to take the long way down through Atlanta to avoid the roads being shut down. By the time we came home, the roads were fine.
We passed some cotton fields in Georgia on the way down! That was really neat to see.
The weather was beautiful the whole time we were there. It was nice to just relax and enjoy our time together. We spent a lot of time on the beach and found some awesome seashells. The hotel we stayed at was actually right on the beach and we could see the ocean from our window. That was pretty neat. One morning, we got up and went down to the beach very early to see the sunrise on the ocean.
It felt so good to have my feet in the sand!
I carved a heart on the sand and put our initials and “20 yrs” under them. That was fun!
Sunset on the beach was so beautiful!
Our favorite thing we did was when we went on a boat ride for dolphin watching! We had a really nice ride around the Gulf of Mexico and all around Treasure Island and got to see several dolphins coming up out of the water. They were too quick to take any pictures of them, but we really enjoyed the view and being on the water.
After the dolphin watching, we walked around the shops at John’s Pass. There was a lot of neat little shops and we had a really good time.
So those were pretty much the highlights of our vacation. We enjoyed our time alone so much, it was very refreshing for us to get away. It had been such a long time since we’ve done something like this. It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years already since we got married! The time sure goes by fast! God has truly blessed our marriage and I can’t wait to see what the next 20 years brings!
