Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Florida 2013

It was after 8pm when I arrived here yesterday and I felt too exhausted to do anything except go to bed. I can never sleep on long haul flights but I did manage to catch up on a number of films I wanted to see. This morning, feeling greatly refreshed I went for a walk around the estate where I am staying with friends A and N who have lived here for about 9 or 10 years now. So here I am in Florida in a place called Wellington not too far from West Palm Beach.
 
The weather is beautiful and very warm. All the houses have a view of a lake. Not sure how many lakes there are but quite a few. It  is a five mile walk around the outer edge of the estate.
The estate has been built on reclaimed land but natural areas remain and are protected. There was so much wild life especially bird life around that I am not familiar with and unfortunately cannot name.

  3. It looks gorgeous .... the perfect place for a long walk after being cooped up in that jet-plane. I've never been to Florida so look forward to seeing it through your eyes.

  8. I will enjoy your visit to Florida, I know. You take great pictures. My sister lives in Zephyrhills, Florida, and when I visit I am always amazed at how beautiful it is. Of course, I am there during the winter, not when it's so hot. :-)
