It's been too long since I've visited the beautiful state of Florida. I vacationed in Destin and Pensacola almost 25 years ago. I can still feel the sand between my toes, smell the air and the ocean, and remember feeding raisin bread to the seagulls flying by our window.
VISIT FLORIDA is giving us the chance to win up to THREE vacations to The Sunshine State in Florida’s Three for Free Giveaway!

I love science, scenery and self-pampering, so I entered and chose the Space Cowboy vacation sponsored by the Space Coast Office of Tourism; the Breakers Luxury Dream Vacation sponsored by The Breakers Palm Beach, and the Ultimate Spa-Cation sponsored by PGA National Resort and Spa. If I won all three, that would be awesome! Imagine having lunch with an astronaut and then being pampered at a luxury spa!
