Vacation - Day 1

Hello from Vero Beach!! So, Yesterday was the day! Andrew had to work from 7-5, but ended up getting off at 3:30. so, we decided to leave a day early, and drive to Charleston, so he could see his old boss. I came in from outside, and this is what I saw:
He surprised me with a Diamond Wedding band for our 5 year Anniversary. Our actual anniversary isn't until next Saturday, but he wanted me to have it before we left for vacation!
It's so pretty... Don't you think!

So, We ended up leaving around 6:00 pm and got to Charleston around 10:00. We didn't have hotel reservations, so we went to a few different hotels, until we found one with an available room. Then we got up this morning, and headed to the Chick-fil-a in Mt. Pleasant to eat breakfast with Josh, Andrew's old boss. We were there till almost 10:00, then it was time to get on the road, and head to Florida. The GPS said it would take about 7.5 hours, and with our stop for gas and lunch, it took us right at 7.5 hours. The resort is beautiful. We checked in at the front desk, and went to bring our stuff to the room. Here is our room.

We can actually see the ocean from our balcony, but this is not our ocean view room.

We will only be in this room for tonight, we switch to our Ocean view room tomorrow. After dropping our stuff off at our room, we walked around the resort and took some pictures. I love that the resort is right on the beach! We had to make a quick trip to Publix to pick up a few things, and then we went to dinner. We ate at a restaurant at the resort called Shutters. Andrew got the crab cakes, and said they were very good. I got the BBQ Chicken Flat bread and we got the spinach & Artichoke dip as an appetizer. Everything was very good. Our waitress asked if we were celebrating anything, and since this is our anniversary vacation we told her that our anniversary is next Saturday, and she brought us some buttons to wear that say "Happy Anniversary" and two pieces of cake. Today was a wonderful first full day of vacation. I can already tell that this vacation is going to be wonderful.
