We're coming up on our 3rd anniversary of our disaster vacation over at Crystal River.  In short, the plan was to scallop, fish through the night, scallop more and get a room the 2nd night.  Then, springs and leave the 3rd day.   The weather was supposed to be PERFECT.  Ooooh.... nothing turned out right.

This is long but here is the 3 parts.  I just realized I never wrote the 4th part.

Scallop & Checking the skies - Part 1

Storm is approaching - Part 2

Surviving a Night of Seasickness - Part 3

Praying for a SAFE vacation this year.

SCALLOP VACATION!! - time to prep

by Robin

It's that time again.  We bumped our trip up to July for multiple reasons.  One of the biggest was that it was super hard for us to go from vacation mode into school mode the next week.  Secondly, our eldest is changing to the University and he start date is much later after our co-op begins for home schooling.

I can't wait to do this again.  Looks like we have some friends joining us again this year.
