Just Some Postcards from Florida

I havent been to Florida for fun in quite a while, and I recently returned from a visit to friend Ferne in St. Petersburg. I had a marvelous time and loved the city, the Gulf, the relaxing, the shopping, and my friend’s excellent hospitality.

Here are some highlights:

The iconic Palmetto tree

Waiting for the green flash

As you can see, I thoroughly enjoyed my days in the sun!
