Another visit to Paradise

It seems like everywhere there is a freeze, a blizzard or the wind chill is about 80 below. So, just imagine that you went to lunch with us the other day. Although the beach was super crowded with tourists (notice the out of state plates), it was really a great day, so I didn't mind the traffic so much. With all the extra hours we're putting in, it was nice to break away and enjoy a few hours of the day.
Even the Goodyear blimp was out for a spin.
















And what is a day like that without some frozen tropical rum type drink?




Some days I am thankful for my Florida winter.


This was Fun Foto Finish Friday with your host, fabulously, funny, Candid Carrie.

Go see what Friday Fun is happening over there!

  1. The tropical rum drinks are the best...so smooth. Sippin on a Crown & diet now, probably my fav!

  2. It's hard not to appreciate great Florida weather at this time of year. I enjoy the bit of coolness we're having now too. But I think we are a bit north of where you are.

  8. I'm not sitting in as cold a spot as some of the previous posters. It is at least 40 here today. Might hit 50. But I am envious of your Florida winters.

  15. Oh, we shoveled slush out of our driveway just like that. But not red. And not alcohol. And not fun.

    We have a Florida Avenue in our city but it is cold there, too.

    Thanks for joining in today.

    ;)

  16. That drink looks so good and so does the beach. We haven't been as cold as some, but it was a cutting cold. It is warming up today and feels good except for the wind. What kind of drink is that? Looks so good and Oh how I would love to be on the beach in Florida, where I have never been.
