Now for the good- which was the bulk of my packing. Quick recap if you didn't read pt 1 yet- 5 days in Dystopian Central FL w/ dad + 2 travel days- with only a carryon bag.

The activities
Lots of swimming! Miles at the Y, goofing off in the odd shaped community pool and hot tubs, snorkeling w manatees (used wetsuit)! A bit of hiking and beach visiting, and lots of walking around his community. Watching a bar cover band, visiting the flea market (Goodwill on steroids), watching dad's community baseball team get trounced, driving around nature drive, and enjoying the nice weather.

Print bag- used daily inc travel, Ripskirt- used all 5 days pre and post pools, gold Birks- used all 5 days (not on travel days).

Runners up- tankini top and bottom- 3 wears. Not for laps, just for community pool. Top is loose enough to wear as a shirt. Black Athleta tank- travel days underneath + on its own. Also slept in 2 nights.

Worn twice- black dress, sunhat, skort (sleep only), cropped leggings (sleep only), other black tank (sleep only), purple swimsuit, rashguard (Y pool a bit cold).
Brought the skort and cropped leggings in case I would have used dad's bike or rented a boat or something, aside from sleeping in.

Worn once- rust dress, burgundy top, rust top (worn in day and slept in).

Again- could have cut back a little, but pretty good for a first attempt!
