2012 FT. Myers Family Trip
12 May 2012 (Sat): Huntsville - Ft Myers, Florida
Dan's family had a 1-week vacation at the Hyatt Coconut Plantation, Bonita Springs and I tagged along. =P Departed early at 4.30am coz Donna & Donny had to catch their flight at Atlanta while the 3 of us continue our long ride in the SUV down to Florida.
The entire journey was about 12 hours, luckily Dan's iphone has unlimited plan...definitely made the long journey so much better. =)
Zaxby's for lunch...yummy!!
Massive bug-suicide after we entered the border of Florida.
Finally arrived our hotel!!
Donna & Donny arrived earlier and stocked up on food supplies...woohoo!!
Went for a stroll around the surroundings of the hotel and was in time to catch the sunset.
13 May 2012 (Sun): Chillax at Hyatt Coconut Plantation
Mother's Day breakfast prepared by Anna and Donny. =)
Time to hit the pool for some tanning! Well I don't really need more tan. :P
One of the hotel's activities...Bingo!!
Lotsa beef and shrimps for Shish kebab!! Yummylicious!!
Too much good food for dinner...haha!!
14 May 2012 (Mon): Chillax at Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort
There were two different hotels in this Hyatt...the one we stayed at was for the owners, the other one was the hotel for public. Walked over to the other hotel to use the pool there.
Another round of tanning. As usual, I was stalking cute kids. :P
15 May 2012 (Tues): Outlet Shopping Spree
Even before I went, I've already done my research and knew that there was a factory outlet (Miromar Outlets) about 20 minutes from our hotel. I'm not a person who like shopping but outlet shopping is an exception coz the deals are really good and it's much cheaper than M'sia! If you've shopped in US factory outlets before, you'll know how overpriced these branded goods are in Malaysia!
Thanks to my bby for accompanying me to shop...haha! =) I don't know why but I always have the tendency to buy shoes in US. =.= 'Damages' made=$370 :O
Bf's ice-cream treat at Royal Scoop Homemade Ice Cream. =)
17 May 2012 (Thurs): Big Hickory Beach, Putt-Putt, Ft Myers Beach
Took a boat from the hotel to the private beach.
A lil' disappointed with this 'private beach'...not as cool as it sounds...haha!
More tanning?? Nope I think I've had enough...lol!! Or else I'll really be "Khai the Thai". =P
I told 'em that I've never played putt-putt so they took me for a round of putt-putt game. It was fun and I did pretty good for someone who've never played golf.
The nicer beach...Ft Myers beach.
18 May 2012 (Fri): More Shopping!
Originally, we planned to go to St. Pete's beach but we got lazy on the last day so decided not to go. Instead, I asked Daniel to bring me to the outlet again for another round of shopping...whoops!! More 'damages' done...another $370!! =.=
Last round of tanning at the pool on our last day.
19 May 2012 (Sat): Ft Myers - Huntsville
Another long journey back. From sunrise...
...to sunset! Thanks bby for driving all the way! Spotted a schoolbus-converted-lorry on the road...innovative huh!
