In order to finish up this little mini-series about my vacation in Florida, here is what happened on my final day: travel day (it’s kinda boring, so I won’t be offended if you don’t read).
After I finished packing early in the morning, I walked myself over to Relish Café (again) to grab a cup of coffee for the road. We checked out of the house we were staying in at 10am, and afterwards we stopped in this small little thrift store on the island that is run by the local church. It was so little! Unfortunately, nothing caught my eye.
Since our flights out of Tampa weren’t until later in the afternoon, we decided to drive to Ellenton, about 45 minutes from Anna Maria Island, to go to their outlet mall. When we got there, we only had 1 hour to shop. Can you say speed shopping? There were a lot of stores to go into that we don’t have in Raleigh, or near Raleigh, so I was running around like a crazy lady from store to store. I ended up only buying one thing, from the Kate Spade store for the Ashley Pants, as a thank you for watching my dog child.
Once we arrived at the airport, we ate at the Chili’s for lunch before boarding and flying to Charlotte and then back to Raleigh. Let’s just say it’s sad that I left 73 degree weather to arrive in Raleigh and be welcomed with icy roads and 30 degree weather. Not cool Raleigh, not cool.
Bows and Arrows,
