By late winter I get RV'ing fever (real bad) and I decide at the last minute to head to Florida for the cure. We usually break the 1 week long trip (way to
short) into a few days stay at Tropical Palms in Kissimee and a few days in Englewood were my folks live. This year while in Kissimee we toured Full Sail College which is well known for graduating the top film & audio technicians in the business and a school our son has dreamed of attending. From as early as I can remember he showed signs of incredible talent in all types of art and more recently in film and production. He spends endless hours of time at the computer producing school projects, online commercials for local companies and now an online cooking show. (Here is some speed drawing he recently did
) After our tour of Full Sail if he could have he would have liked to start immediately, but you have to be a high school graduate, so he will have to wait a year.
It always seems so surreal to me going from winter to summer in a matter of the 2 day drive. On my morning bike rides through the community of
Celebration the smell of blooming plants and flowers along with the sound of birds and spring peepers makes you feel so alive. Towards the end of our stay we take our traditional ride on my parents boat on the intercostal Gulf waters and for me that is pretty close to what I imagine heaven to be like.
It would appear this year the warm weather from the south has tagged along on our trip home and we are enjoying 60 & 70 degree weather this week on into the next. Just maybe spring has truly arrived early!
