We're back! [Oct. 2nd, 2004|07:27 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Actually we've been back a few hours, hehe, but I've been teaching Matt how to process orders and stuff, lol.

We had SO MUCH FUN!!!

We stayed out on Sand Key which is an island off of Clearwater Beach at the Sheraton Sand Key resort!

It was a very nice hotel, and we ate at some great restaurants, played on the beach, etc. Went to a couple of tiki bars, and spent a lot of money, hehe.

The wedding was beautiful - right on the beach, right at sunset, very nice. Not exactly a "traditional" wedding (it was two girls getting married and the bride(s) were in swimsuits and we were all wearing leis and sarongs and stuff, lol). The reception was at an outdoor tiki bar right on the ocean and it was warm and breezy and they had lots of good food & drinks.

This morning when we woke up we went to the Florida Aquarium which was a lot of fun. It was at the port in Tampa Bay and we saw all of the big cruiseships and stuff, it really made me want to go on a cruise soon.....

It was all just about an hour and a half away, which makes it great for a weekend getaway - I'd definitely like to go out to that area again for little quickie vacations. We had so much fun and we were only gone 24 hours, lol. Next time I want to go to the Salvador Dali Museum (a huge collection of his work - including a lot of the "famous" ones, hehe) and some of the other museums and stuff. And go out on some of the tours and dolphin-sighting boats and stuff like that.

Ah, but now there is lots of work to do =P It's kind of fun training Matty though, hehe ;)

A cruis sounds like a great idea! You should go!

The wedding sounds interesting :-P I always though Tiki lounges were...odd places. Do you have those South American cannibal masks everywhere? Scary! LOL

Oh, hehe - not that kind of Tiki bar (not the 1950s touristy kind, lol). Just the outdoor palm tree thatched hut on the beach with torches kind =) And lots of yummy drinks, hehe!

Looks, and sounds lovely...glad you had fun. You should defintely go and have mini breaks more often (if Matt's new boss gives him time off...I've heard she's a slave driver LOL)

I'm very jealous about the aquarium...you can dive with the sharkses there! *jealous tonnes* But then I need to get my ass off the PC, cos we're heading to an aquarium today too. :)

Do you guys have lots of dolphins around there? My mum loves dolphins.

WELCOME BACK, JASMINE & MATTY!!!

WELCOME BACK, JASMINE & MATTY!!!!

I'm glad you had so much fun! You certainly deserve it, as hard as you work! ;-p

Two women getting married is unusual. Although I have no problem with it, I know many people who are angered by gays and lesbians. Why, I don't know. . . . I haven't really personally known any gay women, but the gay men that I have known have always been very intelligent and insightful, and, actually, quite interesting to converse with! :-)

I love dolphins and manatees!!!! I could watch them all day!!!

Maybe one day I will visit the Salvador Dali museum; I would love to see his work up close and personal! =)

Yes you HAVE to go and see the Salvador Dali stuff! I saw the originals in Brugge in Belgium a year or so ago and it was great! Don't know if you've ever been to Brugge but here's a pic! Brugge!
The places you went to look great, so pretty!
Aww the ceremony sounds sweet, at least the weather was better than when my Aunty and her fiance got married, again, it was 2 girls, but it was raining and everything :(

We'll definitely check it out next time we're out that way!

Oh man, that looks great - I need to make a trip to Europe again sometime soon, if only for the art museums, hehe!

Awww! Rain =( There was a little thunder during the ceremony, but it never led to rain, thank goodness!
