Merry Christmas in Florida
Yes, we are walking around coatless and mittenless. There's no fireplace for stocking-hanging with care. But last night we walked along the waterfront in downtown St. Petersburg and the moon could take your breath away, low-hanging and orange. We saw the huge-- well not quite Rock Center or White House huge-- but a plenty big enough Christmas tree. There were ice skaters! (was that a plastic rink?) Holiday cheer to go all around!
And today's paper announced we've been named (by whom? but it's true!) the Sunset Capital of (what- World, Country, State?) Something good.
Beautiful sunsets trump snowstorms, I do believe.
As we strolled back to the car, we passed the new Chihuly gallery. Another fine reason to live in or visit Tampa Bay.
Merry Christmas, good reading, happy cooking and eating, to all!
