Siesta Key and Busch Gardens

It is now our family tradition to head to the beach for Memorial Day long weekend.

Since the closest nice beaches are on the Gulf coast of Florida, we decided to go to Sarasota, FL. There we had a lot of fun at Siesta Key Beach, which had nice white sand.

On our way back, we spent a day at Busch Gardens in Tampa. While Michelle was too young for some of the great rollercoasters, we did enjoy quite a few rides.

And now we are planning another trip to Florida.

Hilton Head

We went to the beach on memorial day weekend where we had a lot of fun and ate lots of great seafood.

As is our tradition, we went to the beach for the Memorial Day long weekend. This trip was to Hilton Head Island, SC.

We spent most of our time there on the beach. Michelle was very excited about getting into the water. The first day she spent most of the time in the ocean, but on the second day, it was very windy and the waves were much higher. She would go into the water and then run back when a wave crashed on the shore.

Here are some photographs.

We had some great dinners there. At Truffles Grill, I had salmon with mango barbeque glaze which was heavenly. CQ’s the next night was pretty good too. We sat outside at Old Fort Pub where I had a very tasty Bouillabaisse.
