After 7 days in sunny Florida it takes a little adjusting to get used to the cold again. Just a week ago we were walking the shore of beautiful Ft. Myers Beach. This was the 20th consecutive year that son Carlton and I have made our pilgrimage to the Gulf Coast near Sanibel Island. For granddaughter Kayla, it was the 11th year, and the 3rd year for John. (He married into a family of sun lovers.) We spent a wonderful day in the Everglades and took our usual hikes through the "Ding" Darling preserve and various mangrove swamps. I took my laptop along did some writing; if I don't it's always hard to get back into things when I get home.
