Wordless Wednesday...Missing the Beach

 

Yesterday Myrl Jeffcoat shared with us that it was Clean Your Computer Day. I am in a constant state of deleting and reorganizing my photos, so every day is Clean Your Computer Day for me.

 

While going down memory lane, I came across this photo in my Favorite Places at Delray Beach.

While I am very happy with where we are now, I have to admit that this photo made me sigh and miss the beach. 

I can’t complain about the weather but, here’s a comparison of the temps here now and in Delray Beach.

Kathy,

I can understand that.  We plan to be there this afternoon, as it should be perfect for a long walk.  By the way, we have direct flights from Dallas to Santa Barbara, and you could take a flight from Houston to Dallas...We have great beaches...A

That photo is a treasure. I suspect you'll have many a beach vacation in store for you, at Delray Beach and elsewhere. Once the beach and the ocean get in your blood, they're there for good.

I have a beach nearby, but I'm missing the warm weather and sunshine.  Friends are inviting me down to Florida, but the Spring market has begun so I can't get away.  Hoping you get to experience a warm, sunny beach soon!

I totally get it. I am very happy where I am now, but I do miss living in Portsmouth. The difference with me though is that I'm only 30 minutes away and can visit whenever I want.

Kathy 53 degrees is a long way from beach weather.  I did not realize there was that big a difference in temperature between Texas and Florida.

Hi Donald Urschalitz I was hoping that I'd see some kind of beach photo from you! Thanks!!!

Grant Schneider it's because it really is a favorite of mine. 

Barbara Todaro LOL I really have no complaints considering how cold it is up north!!!

Nina Hollander that's what takes me so long to go through my photos!  LOL One picture and my mind is off to another time and place. 

Myrl Jeffcoat Larry and I used to walk along the beach every day and we were away, the first place we'd head was the beach.

Honestly Brian England I miss taking the pictures of the beach too. Right now in Houston, it's cloudy and grey. Not very good for taking pictures. 

Kat Palmiotti When I look at all of the beach photos I have, I truly can't complain about not seeing it every day now.

Sheila Anderson Oh yes, and I still have many other photos just like it. 

Oh Michael Jacobs I hope you have a glass of your favorite beverage and find a wonderful place to enjoy the photos.   I'll bet some pondering moments will come from it.

Good for you Norma J. Elkins Our good friends who live in KS  go to the Florida Panhandle every summer. 

Sharon Lee I could live in temperatures of 72 degrees year round!

Will Hamm I've been around water all my life!  At least we have the gulf here. (such as it is)

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty if it weren't for my family, we would have stayed in Florida. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I will have to see your beaches some day. Very different from Delray.

Lottie Kendall I have to agree. Moving back to Houston was seamless because in my heart, I have never left. But, there is so much I am grateful for from my time in Delray. 

Jeff Dowler, CRS exactly. We're working on finding the right time.

Gail Robinson if you really want to enjoy it, go when it's cold where you are (NOW).  You can rub it in with all of your friends back home. LOL

Krystin Mitchell, CPA CFE well, the sun may not be out but at least it's not cold. 

Sharon Tara we're about an hour away from Galveston and will visit when it's warmer.

I hear you Kathy!  At times I miss the places I've lived before especially CO. No more winter for me tho!!  Warm is good but so is th 50's. Enjoy before it gets hot and muggy in TX.

Morning Kathy.

Galveston is just a short drive, but it sure doesn't match the sights of Delray Beach

As the weather begins to warm up I have found that a walk in the evenings is very much needed. Finding the time to just enjoy the items around me is one that has become very important to me.
