sunshine state of mind

We have just returned from a family vacation in Florida.  Visiting an old favorite place, staying in the same familiar blue and white beach cottage.  Walking the same path to the beach.  Visiting tried and tested restaurants, cafes, doughnut shops and beaches.  All lovingly familiar and making us feel right at home immediately on arrival.

We've stayed at Indian Rocks Beach on the Gulf Coast 6 times now.  We vacationed in other places for  the past two years and thought we wouldn't miss our little beach cottage.  But we did. Of course.  The sun shone and we all have a healthy 'glow' to bring us into the summer and outdoor pool time once again. We are rested from lazy mornings, exercise really not much more than walking to the beach and along the beach!

The light in Florida is amazing, giving photographs that beautiful brightness that you see in magazine spreads.  Greens are greener.  Blues more azure.  White sand so soft, almost like flour, reflecting the sunlight.  

My favorite meals always include coconut shrimp and Grouper fish tacos!  Of course, a Margarita or two on the side is the perfect partner!  Some local live band playing (not always good) music and the warm air and sunset.  I could live here, without a doubt.

We're already planning a return trip next year.
