Blessed with perfect weather

We've had beautiful weather the past week. Soon it will be summer and life in Florida will be the roar of air conditioners and miserably high humidity. For now we are enjoying the weather while we can. It's such a blessing to be living 5 minutes away from the beach. I love to relax and watch the waves rolling in toward the beach as the sun slowly sinks on the horizon.

Yes, truly a blessing.

Road trip

This week I went on a quick business trip to Miami. I lived there for six years in the 1980s, but now many places are totally unrecognizable. It's a fascinating city that needs a lot more than a day to take it all in, but unfortunately I didn't have time - maybe next time.

I hadn't had a Fuddrucker's hamburger in nearly 30 years. They are still the best burgers ever!
 I rented a car for the trip - a brand new Kia Soul which was actually really fun to drive. The weather was perfect on the day I returned home. I stopped along the way in the middle of the Everglades - grasses and swamp for further than the eye can see.

The sky was so blue against the green of the grass. There was lots of wildlife, but strangely I didn't come across any snakes or alligators.
