What is the perfect thing to do in the chilly month of February? Take a vacation to the south coast of Florida of course. So we did!
As it turns out, Spring came early to our parts this year and I’m crossing my fingers that it’s here to stay.
So what did I learn in February?
I learned that the Atlantic Ocean in south Florida is not only beautiful, but WARM compared to the Pacific Ocean. I’ve never spent any real time on the Florida Coast before so it was fun getting the chance to explore.
One day while out exploring I met this man who gave me a quick lesson on how to weave grasses into beautiful baskets. Then he offered to let me become his apprentice and eventually take over his business on the beach.
A retirement consisting of doing crafts on the beach in sunny Florida? What do you think? 🙂
Yep, that’s Paul Bedard from Animal Planet’s Gator Boys. He was very accommodating as he willingly showed me the scars from his many alligator bites.
In February a new store, Lowes Foods, opened in our town. It’s a store with Southern roots and in my opinion is the Nordstrom of grocery stores.
Please excuse the quality of my iPhone photos. They really don’t do this Bee-U-Tee-Full store justice. Does anyone know how to forward iPhone photos and keep the quality intact?
Hmmm, is he waving at me or telling me to stop with the pictures already?
This is just a sampling of what this store has to offer. It also has a chocolate and coffee bar, a super fancy cake shop, a fresh pizza shop . . .
I learned that I don’t want to go there hungry😂
What did I learn at the lake? That I STILL love boating in the beautiful waters of South Carolina.
I’m blessed to have friends like these. 😉💕
A warm welcome to the month of March and blessings to y’all!
