Too Busy To Blog

Happy As A Clam
Ok, just a quick note to tell you all I may not be coming back home. I am in LOVE here. I walked in the condo from door and the first thing to greet me was a beautiful Atlantic ocean waving at me. What a greeting....what a welcoming. The weather is very nice, cool in the mornings, but yesterday afternoon was PERFECT. Today the fog greeted me as I woke to see the sunrise. But it was pretty neat to watch. As the sun rose, the fog lifted and the waves were higher than normal. Well, I don't know about "normal", it was just higher than it was the day before when I saw it!!! I am like a kid in a candy store. I can't get enough of it, I can't miss anything, I am so afraid a whale or a dolphin or something exciting will happen while I blink. I hate going to bed, although it is dark and I can't see anything, I just don't want to miss a single thing. I am up before 7:00, grabbing a blanket and going outside on the balcony so I can take pictures of the sun rise. This is just crazy! I am so in love with this great world that God has made. He did a pretty good job on this side of the world!!!
Yesterday we went to downtown and rode the sightseeing train all around the sites. It was so neat to hear about this town and see the old buildings...they are beautiful. And to think they were built back in the 1600's. The college here was a hotel in the beginning and now kids enjoy the beauty and splendor of it all. And while they are in school all us "tourist" just walk around them taking pictures like crazy. They probably think we are nuts. I have taken probably close to 200 pictures so I am not going to post any now. I don't want to try and download them on this little lap top. So when I get home....watch out you all.
I fear I am coming down with a cold, I have had a very sore throat since I got here ( I brought it with me, did not get it here ). So I am hoping I do not give my aunt and uncle anything!!!! We are going to the outlet mall today, just because I want to. Then hurrying back so I can go to the beach that is about 100 yards from their backdoor. We are on the third floor so the view is just spectacular!!! Oh did I mention I think I am in heaven??? I want to buy a house here and bring my dogs!!!!
Oh I so love this life right now. And the company is outstanding as well.
Ok, I will catch up with you all later....gotta run for now, someone is waving at me...oh it's my new friend....the Atlantic ocean! bye

I"m so glad you are enjoying yourself my friend. We might be able to help you with the house you want to buy LOL. We are RIGHT across the street from the beach.
IT's just nice knowing you are in the same state as me right now.
Hugs to you.

Sending hugs across the state of Florida! You on the Atlantic, me on the Gulf. And I am so jealous......I loved St Augustine. We did the trolly ride around the city two years ago. And we toured Flagler college. I loved the dining room with the Tiffany windows! Can't wait to see your pictures!

I'm so glad you are having a good time.

Enjoy it while you can and share the pics when you get back. Then you will get to relive everything.

Well, I'm jealous. There is an ice/snow storm going through Oklahoma today. We are on the south edge of the front and only have a bit of ice, but enough that I put my Trax on to go out to put feed out for the birds. Enjoy while I sit here looking out at the gray, cold day.

I know that the moment I get to move back to NYC, I will feel the same way.

I'm so happy you're feeling so good. Your great vibes are coming right off the screen

Marge said...

Well, you must be having a good time! You're forgettiing about the rest of us, aren't you? You're due for a post, aren't you?

Debbie said...

Has it been a long time since you've seen the beach? Or have you EVER seen it LOL

My favorite place in the world is the ocean. I'm glad you're enjoying yourself, hon! Look forward to the photos :)
