Sunset Grill at Bahia Beach

We went to the Sunset Grill at Bahia Beach for dinner. The sunset over the water was beautiful.

We lingered on the beach for a while listening to the waves break. The music from the restaurant seemed far away. There was a soft breeze that took the edge off a hot day. The best part is that I don't have to go back to Detroit. I live here now.

Shop 'til You Drop

We've been shopping for furniture this weekend. Got a cheap desk to get the office out of boxes. We went to Target to get some household items and I started feeling dizzy. It was almost 4pm and I hadn't eaten since breakfast. I really need to schedule time for meals. How could I forget to eat?

Busted Ink Cartridge

The black ink cartridge in one of our printers busted and leaked during the move. We were up until shortly after midnight cleaning up the mess.

Note to self: Don't move ink jet printers with ink cartridges inside!

Easter at the Beach

We drove to Clearwater Beach this morning. There was hardly any traffic. It was great! The weather was a little cool, but sunny. We had lunch at the Palm Pavillion. Nobody was in the water. The people on the beach were enjoying the sun.

The above picture is from along the causeway leaving Clearwater. There were people on the small beaches along the causeway soaking up sun or fishing. This palm tree lined section is my favorite part of the road.

The adrenaline rush from moving is starting to wear off. As I start to relax I feel soooo sleepy.

Move In Day

The truck arrived promptly this morning. It's move in day in Florida.

Our stuff was packed from floor to ceiling like a giant 3D puzzle.

It's only winter until you get to Kentucky

The weather was 45° F and windy when we left Michigan yesterday. By the time we got to Cincinnati it was 77° F. So, there you have it. It's only winter until you get to Kentucky.

Cincinnati is the first big challenge driving south. The traffic can be terrible and there are a lot of lane changes as you try to stay on I-75 and not end up somewhere in downtown Cincinnati. Traffic was light and we cruised right through.

The next one was Atlanta. We sailed through Atlanta last night around 11:30pm. There was a lot of traffic, but it moved along. The lights of Atlanta are pretty at night.

Today I'm in shorts. The weather is sunny and in the 80's as we approach the Florida border. I've never seen so many billboards along a highway. The Florida vacation billboards start more than 100 miles from the border.
