St. Pete's Beach, Florida




We visited St. Pete's Beach back in June 2011. We usually go to Fort Lauderdale, but we thought we'd try somewhere different.

I can't remember for the life of me which hotel we stayed in. To be honest, it wasn't anything special, nothing to write home about at all! It was on the beach though, not far from the Don CeSar. Sadly, it wasn't the Don CeSar. We often walked up the beach and had a nose in and had major hotel envy! Next time for definite.....


Bad hotel choice aside, we had a fab time there. We ate at some great restaurants, but what I was most impressed with, was the stunning beaches!

We went to Fort De Soto Park for the day and it was just heavenly. We got there fairly early, as we guessed that as the day would develop the busier it would get. We were right, but it didn't matter, as we had a good spot. I remember having an ice-cream there (probably vanilla, I always go for vanilla!) and it was soo good!

We had the best suntans while we were there. The Florida sun always gives you an amazing colour! 

The trip turned into a bit of a wildlife spotting trip, I have so many photos of Pelicans and various birds!













I would love to go back one day and return to Fort De Soto Park and definitely check in to the Don CeSar Hotel.

All in all, it was a fantastic holiday and I would recommend a trip there.

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Spending ban - Ideas to cutting back...

- this post contains affiliate links - You may have noticed a couple of my tweets recently that I am shamefully on a 'Spending Ban'. Now, this is something both Mark and I have come to agreement on, as looking at our recent credit card statements we I, have been a little too fluid with the spends lately. So, we are putting a little 'ban' on for a few weeks! Seriously do not know how I am going to cope!! Haha... Only joking! But it did get me to thinking though about where to cut back on everyday things and where each of us can save here and there. Especially at the moment where there's hardly any interest on savings and things do seem to be getting more and more expensive! So here's a bit of random list! Nothing in any particular order, just little ideas where we can all cut back in our every day lives! ********** * First of all - I know I said no particular order, but this ones a definite first and then it
