Brunch Crawl

See what I did there ;)

First on the list: The Flying Biscuit Café. According to D, it is the ultimate pit stop when traveling through Gainesville. The chain has 13 different locations starting from Florida, up to Atlanta, and then ending in North Carolina.

I had heard nothing but good tales of the restaurant from my fellow Gator fans.

The environment was definitely family friendly and bright happy colors covered every wall.

My choosing was the Famous Flying Biscuit Breakfast (first thing on the breakfast menu). Two eggs served with their signature breakfast sausage and a side of creamy dreamy grits.

Let me say, I was one happy camper when the food came out! No complaints on our end! Another note: I finished everything on my plate…this is a big deal for me!

Without skipping a beat, I would recommend this restaurant.

Anna Maria Island

This Saturday, my siblings and I headed down south for a little beach adventure to Anna Maria Island. Since it being my spring break, it only felt right to visit a beach sometime during my week break from school. For those who have never visited Anna Maria Island, the water is crystal clear. One of the reason why the beach has become one of my favorite is because it reminds me of the clear water of the Caribbean Sea. The water brings me back to my travel to the Cayman Islands. The sand is not quite the same as the luminescent pink sand of Grand Cayman, but alas, it will is better than Florida dirt!

It is funny because just over a month ago, my girlfriend, Nikki, and I decided to have beach day down at AMI. However, when we arrived to the island, the weather was not ideal.

This time around, the weather was lovely. I get extremely giddy when I cross the bridge over to the island and I can see the water of the inter-coastal. Without a doubt, I am a beach bum at heart.

To me, it is worth the drive. I would much rather drive almost two hours to a beach where I can see me feet in the water than be on a crammed beach such as Clearwater where the water is not even clear. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
