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.
