    Default Sunny Beach!!!!....... It's cold....

    In Florida. first pic is NOT snow, but we did have a five minute flurry last week. We camped at Big Lagoon this week and found a few shivery birds like this great blue heron.

    Oh, I miss Florida! The pictures remind me Carabela beach and St. George Island State Park.

    OMG that looks so inviting. Great photos. I want to go to the beach so badly right now. There isn't snow here, but currently it is 39 degrees. I am ready for spring...

    Cheers,

    I dont know about you all but i hate warm weather!!!
    if i had 2 to 3 feet of snow all year around i would be happy.
    Most people think i am crazy but i love the cold i lived in cocoa Beach florida for 2 years and hated every moment of it. except for the wind of the ocean i love to fly kites. i am still a big kid at heart. that is what the photo of the shore reminded me of ... flying kites...
    great photo

    Valentino - you should move here then...last winter we had snow for 5months...so far this is only 3months...but our average snow total is 17 -18 feet a year...not bad for not being in the mountains...thus, my orchids are i/s looking out, for a nice beach somewhere
