I wish I were a seagull


From entry #86

I adore the beach. I love the thought of the big, beautiful ocean stretching out in front of me for miles and miles. I love the thought that someone way out on the other side of the world is touching the same water as me. I wish I were a seagull. I wish I could live next to the sea and live off of the food tossed to me by the ignorant tourists...
Seagulls are the luckiest creatures alive...
--------------------
We spent the last week in Florida. 
I read at the beach. I walked through the swamp-y forests and saw more eagles and alligators than I have in my entire life. I wrote in my journal. I ate junk food with my sister and danced around my grandparent's house. I went to the space center where I had a bit of Tookishness well up and burst inside of me and I went up in the scary launch simulator (actually launching up into outer space isn't as bad as it seems... maybe I could be an astronaut... nah). I was called 'Sweetheart' by a random guy who worked at the adorable little ice cream shop. I got a Dumbo plush toy whist exploring Downtown Disney because one is ever too old for stuffed animals.

Winter is lovely and I have no complaints about it, but I highly recommend taking a visit to Florida when the snow and wind at home get bitter. It makes you appreciate the humidity. You won't even mind that your hair closely resembles a cotton ball.

  3. I was in Florida in the winter, too! I wanted to get a plushie (but never was granted one, sigh) but I did get Minnie Ears. Seagulls are amazing, except they tend to flock in the store parking lots and many don't want to honk their horns and scare them away... O-O

    xoxo Morning

  4. The beach is very high on my bucketlist! I am currently studying Marine Biology and find it mildly ridiculous that I have never seen the ocean.

    Lovely pictures!
