Back from Flagler & Daytona Beaches Visit and Parental Vacation -- Very Interim Update

I'm back from my trip to Florida with my mom to see my dad.

Both the Flagler Beach and Daytona Beach parts came off well, although there were a few surprises and it wasn't without hitches. One of those hitches was the weather -- it was quite inclement at times, not to mention windy (off the ocean).

April 19th (Thursday) -- the day we arrived -- was the only "typical" Florida day weather-wise.

What's more, the flight back yesterday via Atlanta was quite extended in part due to thunderstorms in both Daytona and Hartsfield, and we didn't get back until 2AM into the apartment here in Glen Burnie. (I was in horrible mood at Hartsfield-Jackson waiting for our flight to BWI Airport. Sorry, Chris about those texts ...)

But we got back safe and sound, and it was overall a good vacation and I got to see dad (who was quite fun to be around) and with my mom) in an unlikely meeting of all three of us.

Right now, I have to catch a MARC train back to D.C. Tonight is a gym night. I'll try to post at least a short entry later tonight (after midnight). I have scores of pictures (65+) that I could post, although I won't post all of them and will do so in a few batches.
