Florida Vacation


Page 7 - Wednesday, January 24, 2001

Today we slept in.  I believe we had oatmeal for breakfast today.  We are doing nothing except staying around Ormond Beach.  Today will be a day of relaxation, shopping, sightseeing, and finding the famous Dix house in Ormond Beach.  The Dix house was inhabited by 2 of the Dix sisters in the 1970's.  Dix is the family name of Pat and Cathy's mother.  We had lunch at Billy's Taproom and dinner at Barnacles (or is it Sinbads?).  We got a lot of walking in today.  Pat also bought an old footstool in an antique shop.
