Spring time in Florida

On the weekend we drove over to Okeechobee... there's not much there, but the 'highway' to get from Stuart to there is GORGEOUS. 'Old Florida' at its best. The speed limit is only 40 or 50 so it takes a long time to drive, but there are so many miles of magnificent Floridian trees lining the road that it didn't seem like a long trip at all. We came back on a more major highway and it was a regular old divided road so the trip was faster, but not nearly as interesting. Glad I could see the forest first!

Then yesterday John had to run a call in West Palm Beach so I went with him to go to Brandsmart and buy ourselves a chest freezer for the duplex (there's almost no room in the freezer because it has an ice maker taking up more than half of the already tiny space and we like to buy meat in bulk to save money). While he worked in the bank, I walked the short block to the beach and sat under a shady palm tree enjoying the blissful balmy Florida spring afternoon. Ahhhh... sometimes it's really nice to live in Florida!
