I am back from my Florida vacation. I can see why so many flock that way for the winter months. The weather was excellent. 10 degrees above normal, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I rocked my sundresses and flip flops.
The highlights: Body surfing in the ocean. Laying on a white sand beach. Waking to the sound of the ocean. Wearing flip flops, shorts and sundresses. Flea Markets! I bought some fantastic cheap bling. Dining out of doors in the evening. Visiting my sister who is a Florida resident. Visiting a Chihuly Museum http://www.chihuly.com/chihuly-across-florida-mfa-st-petersburg.aspx and a Chihuly workshop. Eating grapefruit, oranges and tomatoes that all taste like heaven.
I enjoy learning about the places other people live. I especially enjoy warm, sunny places with palm trees.
I had a great break from routine and have returned more peaceful and rested.
Anyone else care to report on their winter get-away?
