Florida Vacation: Easter and The Jungle Trail

Easter Sunday was spent with a late morning brunch with my parents. We ended up settling on the Driftwood Resort to eat since they were able to seat and serve us right away without a reservation. It ended up being a great decision because in addition to the beautiful setting right on the beach, everyone complimented their meals. 

After brunch we made a quick stop by the Disney Resort in Vero Beach. It's a beautiful resort so we snapped a couple of pictures outside after stopping in the Disney Store to pick up a gift for my moms friend.

We headed back to the house in the early afternoon and Tim and I decided that we would head out on the Jungle Trail. I had been on it before but not extensively so we decided to drive the whole way through. The Jungle Trail is a dirt road that brings you through different areas where you can head off on hiking trails and into different areas and explore.

Tim was super excited to explore! Also, since this is a picture of hm behind the wheel it seems like a good time to talk about our rental car! We ended up renting a compact vehicle from Alamo and it was great! It was a white Nissan Versa and fit both of our suitcases perfectly. It was a great car for two people and amazing on gas!

After driving for awhile we decided to stop and explore The Centennial Trail.

There was a nice walkway on The Centennial Trail that listed all the nature preserves and we were able to find Trustom Pond!

I love hiking and walking around and even though it was super hot and muggy I enjoyed exploring the area.

 We didn't get down every trail, but did explore quite a few. I would highly recommend this area because there are so many different places in the area!

After a long day of hiking we headed home where my dad had made a delicious steak dinner for us! We had one more day of Vero Beach left and two days left of our vacation when we went to sleep that night....
