A Weekend In Daytona ✈️☀️🌊
In effort to escape the crappy Michigan weather & to aide my seasonal depression - I booked a quick weekend trip to Daytona, Florida to see my old man! (⬅️aka my Dad)
I left for Daytona at 6:20pm on Friday night & went back to Michigan on Sunday afternoon at 4pm! Nothin‘ crazy just a quick in & out trip that didn’t require PTO time or much expense! And because my Dad has a place in Daytona, I was able to save on expense there too. All I had planned was reading, lounging around & soaking up the weather!
Saturday was rainy & a bit cold for Florida, but we didn’t waste the day! My Dad & I had coffee, drove around a little bit sight seeing, got breakfast at the Cracked Egg, hit up the local flea market, got tacos & had a chill night in!
Sunday the weather was much better (of course the day I’m supposed to leave 🙄) so I got up early grabbed the keys to his truck hit up Starbucks for a iced brown sugar oat milk shaken espresso & hit Daytona Beach for a nice long walk! It was still chilly, but the ocean air and bright sun felt literally incredible & I ended up spending hours down at the beach just taking it all in! Then I hit up the boardwalk area for a little shopping & headed back to get the old man! We decided to grab a burger at Wayback Burger which is super yummy! Afterwards we went back to my Dad's placed & just walked around the neighbor hood taking in the last bit of sunshine before I boarded the plane home!
The trip was quick, but it was SO nice to getaway & even though it was last minute & money I didn't NEED to spend - it was good for my soul. So to anyone reading this & debating making that last minute trip - this is your sign. Book the ticket. Escape. Even if it's just for a few days. A change of scenery can equal a change of heart & sometimes we just need that reset.
