We're Not in Kansas Anymore Are We

So, we were off an adventure.  We were going to Florida.Seagulls  

Now, I've never been to Florida before, but I had heard all about it from friends that had "turned" Snow Birds.  I expected it to be warmer, and it was.  I expected to see a lot of Seniors, and I did.  I expected there to be great seafood, and there was....Seafood

What I didn't expect was the brilliant sunshine--- almost every day.  I didn't expect to be thrilled by the sight and sound of the surf again, but I was.  And I didn't expect to fall in love with the Florida experience, but I did.

It was everything I had hoped it would be.  I knew I wasn't in "Kansas" anymore.  

I felt a child's excitement watching the Dolphins swim close to shore from the deck of the condo.  I loved watching the Pelicans swoop and dive for their supper.  I heard the most beautiful music from a songbird nearby.  I hunted for shells and shark's teeth and got sand between my toes.  I watched the Sunsetsun come up and I watched it set. And, one night I got up just to moon gaze and watch it's light shimmer on the water.  Now that, my husband thought was a little crazy.  And maybe I am....Crazy about Florida in the WinterBig Kiss

Perhaps Diane.  I don't like the cold weather at all anymore, but, I'm not sure I want to spend months at a time away from home either.  Baby steps.....

Sounds like a wonderful Florida escape.  I keep saying to myself that if Arizona had a little coast line, it'd just be perfect!  We DO have Lake Havusu and Parker along the mighty River, but that's not quite the same!
