A Beautiful Day

We Floridians, even the ones who miss the cold weather from up North, are basically wimps when it comes to a little chill in the air.  As you can see from the above picture, we have finally peeked our noses outside to breathe in the beautiful, almost-spring air this weekend.

Today it hit 70 degrees and Mr. Tennis and I ate lunch at an outdoor restaurant and then walked around a local park. It was as if people had been cooped up for months while winter raged on outside.  The park was absolutely packed with picnickers, sunbathers, dogs and lots and lots of children feeding birds.

Blue skies, lovely cypress trees draped in spanish moss.

Don't worry, to those who wonder what has happened to The Boston Lady who usually complains about the hot, humid Florida weather and the oak leaves.  She'll be back, but today she enjoyed a beautiful Florida day.  I hope everyone else had a good weekend too.

Gotta go, almost time for "my Superbowl"!

It was definitely my kind of weather! The Bostons seemed to have an extra spring in their step as well.

Hello Boston Lady-

Just wanted to say Hi and thanks for joining my blog. So nice to have you visit.

Just looking around your blog and can't help but notice the orange VW Camper- the hubby and are thinking of buying one as a fixer upper to hit the road in every now and then.*He is recently retired*
And orange is great.
Right now he have the brightest orange Porsche you've ever seen. IT is a classic '67 model and orange is the hubby's favorite.

So you can see why that photo caught my eye.

I'll be joining your blog and come back to visit from time to time.
