Hello Florida!

Hello my blogging buddies! It feels like forever since I’ve blogged. Between the move and Internet problems I’ve had trouble finding time to blog.

I’m now living in sunny Florida and I love it here! Who can’t love swaying palm trees, bright sunny days and swimming pools? And it’s hot. I LOVE hot.

Our family went out for a hike at the park near our new house. We saw turtles, deer, birds, GIANT spiders (eek!), and a tortoise that could outrun me. So much fun. Except we didn’t see any gators.

The boys call it Old Florida because we mentioned it to them that this is what Florida used to look like before all the people and houses.

There is something magical about strolling down sandy paths with Spanish moss dangling from above and the sea breeze kicking up around you. If you haven’t hiked in ‘Old Florida’ yet, you really need to do it. But keep an eye out for those spiders and thunderstorms. You don’t want to mess with those!

    YIKES!!! Giant spiders – sounds like a horror novel to me.

    I’ll be in Florida in November ๐Ÿ™‚ hope I don’t see any of those 8-legged creatures ๐Ÿ™

    Glad you’re taking time to have some fun, in with all the work of moving! “Old Florida” looks like a great novel setting.

  4. Super cool photos! I’ve never been to Florida, but had envisioned loads of people and houses. Love the other side of the story! Thanks and CONGRATS on your big move.

    Welcome back! Florida sounds like a nice place to settle, the photos are beautiful!

  7. I’m always amazed when hearing how many parts of Florida are fairly new, being swampland a few decades ago. I also enjoy going to Old Florida places.

  8. It really is an interesting place when you get off the beaten path. I’m always amazed once you leave Disney, its just orange groves for mile and swampland.

  9. When we were in Orlando this past December, I loved driving by the orange and lemon groves. I also loved the December weather. Not sure I would love Florida’s humid summer heat as much as you!

    P.S. I’ve been doing some blog-post catch-ups and I must say . . .Way to go with the Taekwondo lessons!!! You go girl! :0)

    Welcome back to the states!

    So glad you’re enjoying your new digs. I too love ‘hot’, which is good as I live in South Texas. I’m sure you’ll see alligators soon (which I would prefer I think to giant spiders!)
