Throwback Thursdays...Different and Not-So-Different

 

Larry and I moved back to Houston in January 2019 and while we miss many things about Florida, we have never looked back.

I was looking at photos from October 2018 when we were still in Delray Beach and planning our move. There is still much that I miss about our walks along the beach...the sunrises, clouds, seashells, waves, and so much more.

And yet I still have them here...just a bit different.

 

It’s a small world after all!

Kathy,

Like Michael Jacobs stated you have each other, and that matters most in the whole scheme of things.  Those are lovely photos.  A

I could take some similar pictures here as well but there would not be any palm trees in the pictures Kathy Streib . I must add that there are a few metel palm tree sculptures I could get into a pic or two.

Wayne Martin I'm with you on that!  I could not see myself living in FL at 80+ (not there yet) without family around. 

Sham Reddy CRS I do remember!!!  You would not believe the changes now to the city.  Still a lot of people though!  May your Diwali be free from darkness and abundant with light.

You're right Brian England we just need to be open for it. 

Kat Palmiotti oh my gosh, you reminded me of when I first moved to South FL and was missing my family. I thought of the song 'Somewhere Out There' from An American Tail.

Hi Kathy Streib - I am very partial to images of clouds.  I remember all the fluffy white clouds when I lived in Houston.  When I moved to LaVerne CA, we did not see those much.  Moving to Sedona, brought back memories of Houston.  Clouds add a lot of drama to our sky and your images are dramatic, to say the least.  Happy Thursday.

I haven't been to Houston.  I have been to Florida, and loved it. . .Especially, down in the Keys.

I've loved each of my four homes....each had their own perfect place in my life.
