Thanks to Vicky’s friend at Discover Crystal River, I enjoyed my first ever experience with manatees. Manatees migrate to warmer waters which means in Florida, you will find them at the springs in the winter months.
Things to Do
It was her first time visiting the island and she loved every moment of it. We capped it off with an amazing sunset view from the Gay Head Lighthouse on the Aquinnah Cliffs. It was one of the most memorable sunsets ever. You can read more about it in Vicky’s post about our day trip to Martha’s Vineyard.
Vicky just published her post about Ocala, Florida where we completed a month-long house sitting assignment. It was my first time really exploring the area and I have to admit I was very surprised and thoroughly enjoyed my time there.

- Neat tidbit: The author’s husband took all the furniture and put it away in storage after the author died because the property was donated to the university to be used as a writer’s retreat. The husband did not want the furniture destroyed or lost. When the university handed the property over to the state, the husband took the furnishing out of storage and with the help of the maid, put everything back the way it was. It was this little thought that made the experience worthwhile.
