Each day that passes here in the warmer climates convinces us both that we have made a brilliant decision. We have now been here for 11 days and it has drizzled for the first time. At 7 am this morning the temperature was 67 F very conducive to outdoor activity. We are able to enjoy two extra hours of daylight everyday, a boon to my perimenopausal mood. Since our arrival I believe we have only missed one sunset on the gulf, Brian is really learning the ins and outs of his new camera.
We enjoyed a lovely dinner with our pal Susie, her impromptu trip south was conveniently done in our geographical area, thanks for stopping in Susie !
We have found our rhythm here, a run or bike in the morning, followed by the daily picking of the backyard grapefruits. Brian has become our master juicer, he is reveling in the joy of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice everyday. We have yet to put the kayaks in the water, but that is not due to the lack of boat launches.
One of our greatest joys is watching our dogs, Hazel and Josie enjoy the out of doors all day long. We have long walks with them in the nearby preserve, they have a nice big back yard to run in, and an endless supply of tiny evasive lizards to stalk.
We send out love to those in the cooler climes and a reminder that the days are getting longer and we are slowly headed towards spring.
