We have been in Florida for nine days. The first week was a bit of a whirlwind. Lots of things to do (license and registration, unpacking, driving around with GPS), but overall, things are fine.
The weather here is crazy! As I write this, we are having a serious thunderstorm (serious by Massachusetts standards). It rains every day, sometimes torrential rain, and there is significant thunder and lightning almost daily. It is tough to plan around the weather, since storms tend to pop up quickly and stay in one place for a very long time. This makes evening walks difficult. But! When we can do evening walks, they are pretty nice!
Nearly that we have encountered in Florida has been very nice–super friendly, always willing to help and say hello. We went out to dinner with our neighbors next door on Friday and then did the Riverwalk. A highlight of the week, for sure!
We went to Siesta Beach on Saturday, which is voted the #1 beach in America by Trip Advisor. It was beautiful! Quartz sand, clear water, good amenities! We arrived early, got a prime parking spot, went swimming, and had a picnic lunch. Lots of fun.
Tim started his orientation week today. I have an interview for a new job on Wednesday and we are mostly unpacked. The house is very nice and we are starting to settle in. Lots to do, but we are trying to be patient.
Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts, and gifts! We miss you!
