I had the good fortune to spend the last week in Florida visiting my grandparents. I was serenaded by mariachis at one of the best Mexican restaurants I've ever eaten at. I enjoyed the beauty of nearby New Smyrna Beach. I paid a second visit to Islands of Adventure in Orlando where I enjoyed the most elaborate candied apple I've ever seen (and enjoyed the wonder of Hogsmeade all over again). I saw an alligator. I went canoeing for the first time in my life.
