Air traffic into South Florida has been difficult, once again, because of winter conditions that have closed some airports in the southeastern part of the country. That has left some folks stranded in Florida for a few days. I can remember coming here on vacation and I would have considered being trapped here a few more days a blessing. :) In fact, I remember praying for such a thing! All I can say is that they had better enjoy this beautiful weather while they can. Messages from MO and IN told me of a snow storm that had just started passing through there today. All of that makes me happy to be right where I am.
After playing with Puffin (who's name may have to be changed to Chewy the Ewok) for a while, we went to Gulfside City Park to check out the beach.
There were plenty of shells for the taking! I saw a couple that interested me, but didn't pick them up. I didn't want to put Puffin down to get sand all over himself today. It was pleasant walking on the beach this evening. It was windy but still warm. The thermometer reached 70 degrees at our house today and in the sun it felt much warmer than that.
You can see that there was a lot of beach wrack and shells. If the wind shifts to the NW tomorrow as was predicted, there may be a lot more shells.
Temperature in the mid 70's has been predicted for tomorrow. So, if you are here, enjoy! If not, you should seriously consider packing! :)
