How Sweet It Is

We're back! We spent and AWESOME little vaca on Little Gasparilla Island. It's about a 2 hour drive south of Tampa. It's only accessible by boat so we parked at the Marina and took a boat out to the island. There are no cars at all on the island. Just little dirt roads that people drive around on with their golf carts. The house came with a golf cart so we hauled all of our stuff that way. You have to bring EVERYTHING you need because there is nothing on the island but houses. No stores, no restaurants, I mean NOTHING! Crazy! Our house was soooooo cute!!! It was called "How Sweet It Is". It was RIGHT on the Gulf! The view from the living room and master bedroom were breath taking. We slept with out window open and listened to the waves crash! We collected a million shells, watched sun sets, swam, sunbathed, drove around in the golf cart (which the girls thought was HILARIOUS). Big Sis even drove! We saw a few snakes too, ewwww. The house had a huge screened in porch so Mike and I sat out there with a glass (or two) of wine and watched the millions of stars. It was the perfect little get away that we needed as a family since The Hubs' homecoming. Enjoy the pics!
