I recently went to Florida for several days. I could go on and on about the trip but the new Friday Five format is great for this so I can jump right to the Highlights from my Florida Vacation
- SUNSHINE AND WARM TEMPS
Remember I live in upstate New York and we got blasted in March with lots of snow. It is often rainy and cool when I go to Florida but not this time. I was blessed with blue skies and warmth EVERY single day.
2. THE BEACH
Again, I do get to swim in a lake in the summer but I much prefer the beach for relaxing in the sun and watching the ocean. My friends know this about me and although they were not healthy enough to go in the ocean, I was and they gladly accommodated me.
3. FRIEND MEET-UPS
I’m at that age when my friends (and family) are retiring. When they do, they either winter in Florida or move to Florida. This is when I get to see and hang out with them.
4. FOOD AND DRINK
Yes I love to eat out in restaurants especially those with ocean views. I also enjoy fresh shrimp, grits, key lime pie and many other Florida specialties.
5. RUNNING AND RACING
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Darlene vacation without several runs and a race. I ran most days and did complete my 30th half marathon.
Happy Running! What were some of the highlights of your last vacation? Please Share.
