Goodbye, Florida! #50YearsAgoToday #FloridaTrip — 4 Comments

  1. This helps me look back at our own family vacations in the 70’s. Sound like you and I are the same age, roughly. It makes me miss my dad who passed away 8 years ago. He loved taking his family on these adventures. Gets me a little misty-eyed. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Loved revisiting this memory with you, Joy!
    When I think of my family’s vacations, there are only certain points that stand out. A lot of the details have been swept away.
    You’re mother’s notes and schedules are precious!

  3. You still have your Mom’s notes. How wonderful! My first big (to me) out of state trip was when I was 13 – my Dad and I flew to Tampa to visit his sister. I don’t remember all the details but did it ever make an impression on this girl who had spent all her life up to then in the NYC Metropolitan area. It was also my first flying experience and (after the airlines struck) my first experience with long distance trains. So I second you when you say “Travel with your children”. You never know what memories it will leave. A postscript – I ended up living in Tampa for almost two years as a young adult and I very much remember Maas Brothers.
