Springtime in Florida

For the past 3 years, I’ve had the good fortune to travel to Florida in March.  The snow and cold temperatures are left behind, and I am greeted by springtime on the gulf coast.  Tons of color, cooling breezes, gorgeous horizons, and dear friends.  The trip is never long enough, but 3 full days offers a welcome break from the routine.

I’m even getting comfortable with flying. Yes, as odd as it seems, the woman who rides a motorcycle has a tendency to be a bit nervous on a plane.

The first day in Florida found us enjoying delicious food at Columbia Restaurant, followed by a bit of shopping and walking.

The next morning, after coffee, yogurt, and fresh fruit by the pool (aka hot tub), we were walking Lido Beach.

This little guy was hunkered down in a footprint.

And this guy seemed to be saying “what are you looking at?”

After a couple hours of walking, it was time to find lunch and to explore some local history.

What a gift!

Four days on the Gulf Coast of Florida.  I’ve got much to share, but also have four days of chores to catch up on.

So for now, say hello to this handsome Great Grey Heron.
