Most folks think Florida is nice and toasty all winter. That is according to where you are. South Florida is of course nice most of the winter. Key West is great most of the year.
We lived in Key west for a few years. It is balmy most of the time but cold (cool) about three or four days a year.
It gets down right cold in J-ville sometimes. When I was stationed on the Independence (CVA-62), we pulled into J-ville for liberty. and in February it is COLD.

You have to get used to Florida, they don’t call it the Sunshine State for nothing. Once Sonny and Colette came down for a visit and fish. We were in Bradenton at Lake Manatee. I specifically told Sonny to bring his ‘Warm Suit’. He thought I was joking so he didn’t bring it. After the first early morning he knew I was serious. Early, it is honestly cold (OK, chilly, not cold like in MI, WI,ME,MA etc), but once the sun comes up, it gets toasty warm most of the state. So if you do not fish until late, you are fine.

We have lived in Albany, GA for awhile, which is near the Florida line, then Key West and Tavares, FL. We are still residents of Florida but have only a mail service, we have no property here at all anymore. That confuses some folk. We had a mail service on Merritt Island first, and some folk wanted to know how we lived in a Shopping Mall. haha!
Now we spend about half of our time in Florida moving around. We have what is referred to our home park, one in Wildwood, but we travel around to State Parks to keep the feeling of Camping and seeing other places. That makes this life interesting to us.
(Unique site, burning the cane fields. those flames go 30-40’ in the air.)
I think Sherry likes this life style also, I was kidding her a few minutes ago that God probably had great plans for her, and I came along and short circuited them, and now she has to settle for what IS!
It is fortunate we both like the same things, we separate some on Chocolate though, she doesn’t understand that God created Butter Pecan first, then made Chocolate for those with worse tastes. hahaha
Thanks for coming this way. I appreciate it.
Caffeine increases the power of aspirin and other painkillers, that is why it is found in some medicines.
