Florida Family Visit – March 2010

Hutchinson Island, Florida – Family Vacation 2010

We flew to Hutchinson Island, Florida to hang out with some family and had a great time. We went all out and stayed at the Marriott Resort right on the beach and were on the same floor as Kimberly, Rob and Lauren. My mom and her husband Pat stay at a condo there about 3 miles up the road. It was a great visit.

Videos From The Trip

This first video was taken on Saturday morning after we had breakfast at the “Baha Grill”. Really, you’re going to misspell ‘Baja’? Sydney is the star of this video, practicing putting her hands up.

This video was just a random video I took of everyone on the elevator, but I thought it was cool. Everyone we went to Florida to visit were on this elevator and in this video.

We did not too many touristy things while we were visiting, we mostly just hung out together by the pool and cooked dinner together every night. There were two things that we did that were really fun and I highly recomend:

  1. Florida Oceanographic Society: Situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River Lagoon, the 57 acre parcel houses the Society’s headquarters, library, nature trails, Children’s Activity Pavilion, Rays on the Reef Ray Pavilion and the Frances Langford Visitor’s Center. In short, it has a huge outdoor man-made habitat for all types of fish. They did a feed the stingray show and a feed the game fish show while we were there. You can see some of the pictures above.
  2. Stuart Art Show Block Party: ArtsFest showcases scores of fine artists and crafters in the juried art show and talented musicians. Funds raised through the festival support the on-going programs of the Council including arts information activities, arts education programs for youth and support for artists and arts organizations.
