We are one block from downtown shops and restaurants. Another block takes us to a Whole Foods Market, a Starbucks and yet other stores. A quick drive takes us to any big box store or chain restaurant we can think of. New high rise condos going up right by our marina might be a great place to live, but I don’t want to think of any fixed place to live right now. I would rather wait and see how we feel when we come again next year.
We’ve heard it’s the warmest November in many years, and the weather has been great the whole time. The only rain was here, as well as in Austin, during our Austin trip. The First Presbyterian Church is close by. We’ve made it there for three Sundays and liked it. Presbyterians tend toward the older folks, not many young families in their churches. Sue thought Florida is a great place for them. Presbyterian churches can die as their congregations get old and die off. No worries about that in Florida because there’ll be plenty more old people coming in to replace them.
We’ve decided the Florida west coast may be more to our liking than the east coast, should we decide to settle down to a fixed location. The east is really crowded, especially from West Palm Beach south. The west is less so, but that will change as more retired folk pour into both sides.
