Why We Love Florida

Moving to Florida (we bought a beachside business on the Gulf) has been absolutely fantastic. Besides having a great starting location for our travels with easy access to the Caribbean, Mexico, Cuba and Central America, it’s warm even in the winter, we get an abundance of Vitamin D, there are palm trees and grapefruit trees in our back yard and the wildlife is awesome. We’re both from the midwest (Michigan and Pennsylvania), so the tropical flora and fauna are very exotic to us. (How often can you just pull off at a roadside park and see live gators!?). If you have never been to Florida or are looking for great location for a getaway, we highly recommend the Sunshine State. Oh, and stop by our shop – Beach Snoballs – on Treasure Island – we’d love to meet you!

This is a picture I took while we were moving into our new house – I found this little guy crawling on our mailbox!

  1. Anyplace with an abundance of reptiles and amphibians (‘gators and frogs, in your case) is a good place. Beachside buisness property is pretty kickin’ too.

  2. Looks like you received a special delivery! Haha…what delightful photos!

  3. I went to college in Florida. I miss the little lizards.

  4. YOUR BLOG IS AWESOME, I LIKE THE PICTURE AT THE TOP. DID YOU TAKE IT?

    • Thank you!! We have lots of fun finding and sharing all things travel/adventure. Thanks so much for checking us out! And yes, I took the picture the top when I was in China 2 years ago. I highly recommend having a camera with panoramic capabilities when traveling! It’s a great feature.
