I have spent the last 15 years soaking up the sun in Florida. Like most of it’s residents (19 million) I am a transplant. I was in a landlocked, midwest state with water as brown as my coffee and nary an ocean in sight. The kind of state where it gets so cold in the winter that by the time it gets back up to 50 degrees “it’s shorts weather!”.
Florida is the state everyone from east of Kansas city moves to if you’re looking for sun, sand, surf, and serenity. (everyone west moves to Cali). The weather is amazing most of the year albeit on the hot side but one will never freeze again. I have several years in a row wearing only flip-flops.
I love the fact that anywhere one lives in Florida is less than 60 miles away from the ocean/gulf!
The wacky part of this state goes without saying. I cold fill up several websites with just florida crimes, oddities, and strange stories. I mean headlines like ‘woman gets in accident while shaving her hooha’ kind of stories are common place in this Sunshine State. But you have to admit it’s never boring!
So from time and again I will be focusing on Florida Stories and pictures, both beautiful and weird. I do hope you enjoy!
