The Golski and Heyd families were not the only new arrivals in Florida this week; as soon as we decided to make the journey to the Gulf, Tropical Storm Colin decided to roll in, too. I like to think that we’re trend setters of sorts, and that Colin just had to come pay us a visit, just to see how cool we really were.
But probably not.
Despite the unfavorable weather looming in the forecast, we’ve managed to enjoy a weekend of outdoor activities, mostly unscathed by Colin’s wrath.
Saturday night, we dined at Ford’s Garage at the Miromar Outlets in Estero, Florida– a tasty burger joint costumed in automobile parts as a tribute to Henry Ford himself. Yes, I took a picture of the bathroom sinks, and yes, I felt a twinge of touristy shame as I did.
My mom and I were both impressed by the quote on the wall of the restaurant. It really is a thought-provoking concept and makes you realize how much more you can accomplish if you think for yourself, rather than relying on others’ opinions.
