I'm in Florida right now, attending a conference for work. This trip comes at a most welcome time, as I really needed a break from it all - and I was able to just leave it behind. I would like to have left the knee behind, too, but that isn't quite possible.
I left Sunday afternoon, flying to Jacksonville via Atlanta - here was the approach into Atlanta.
My flight into Jacksonville - I had the honor of being seated in the very last row.
The coolest thing - Delta Airlines now has wifi available during flights. I was able to surf and send photos at 20,000 feet - all for free! It made the flights pass by quickly.
The Jacksonville airport is quite modern with lots of cool art to photograph :
The conference I'm attending is in the Sawgrass resort area, home to the TPC golf course and upcoming Players PGA tournament.
I love the modern touches in the hotel.
And I can watch the sunrise from my room.
I plan to get to the beach one morning to catch a proper sunrise.
The grounds are lovely, with plenty of walking trails to enjoy.
And great seafood to enjoy for dinner. We ate at the Palm Valley Fish Camp, which reminded me of Cape Cod.
So far, the conference has been educational (really! I'm not just saying this because I'm on a business trip).
All photos taken with my iPhone. I've taken several with my DSLR, but don't have access to free wifi, so my phone's connectivity will suffice for now.
A great man has passed on
