Nancy Jane's Lake and Golf Course

While I did not find in Florida a replacement for a February beach vacation in Puerto Escondido, Mexico, I did learn a few of the reasons many people retire there.  Some of them are here in this picture. This is February and --

  • When it is not swimming weather, it is walking-on-the-beach weather -- 

  • And I am dressed for it in February.

  • This artificial lake is lovely.

  • I've just been sitting here reading in the sun and fresh air..

  • The golf greens on the other side of the lake were mowed earlier this afternoon.

  • I had to put on sun tan lotion this morning before taking a walk with Nancy Jane on the Atlantic Ocean beach a few miles from her home in Daytona Beach.
