Welcome to Florida
There aren't many places in the US where you can go to the beach in early January and have it be not only warm enough to walk on the sand with the waves lapping at your toes but warm enough that other people are out enjoying the beach too. Some of them were even swimming without wetsuits. Tourists. I didn't think it was warm enough for that but I was glad to see it anyway. Their enjoyment makes my own stroll more lively. Just the dog and I wandering on an empty beach is peaceful but I feel more connected with the world when there are people around. I don't need them to talk to me. I'm too introverted for that but I find it nice to be around them. Welcome to Florida in January.
