Christmas in Florida

I've enjoyed three unique experiences of Christmas in Florida in the last couple of weeks.

First, spent last evening with two very good friends sipping wine on one's front porch overlooking the salt marsh. No jacket required. Just hours of good conversation and laughter with a stunning view.

Second, getting Christmas cards from my friends here locally that show what Florida is really all about. Like this!

Wondertwin all ready for Christmas - note the red and green surfboards!

And finally, took delivery of a great big bag full of fresh picked oranges from my neighbor's tree. She gifts her favorite neighbors (that's me!) with fresh fruit when the oranges ripen every winter. Free fruit, locally grown (as in next door) and organic, too!

Porch sitting, surfing and fresh picked citrus, that's what Christmas in Florida is all about!
