Farah, you brought to mind so many memories of when I lived in spots much colder than Florida. Not that I want to move north — no, never — but revisiting the memories are nice.

Your beach is gorgeous — so unlike those here— and your narrative was charming. I can imagine fall there.

My daughter and grandchildren moved far away into the north last year and sent photos of an apple-picking excursion on Saturday — again, more memories flooded my mind. Still, I’ll stay here where the 65 degrees (18 C) yesterday morning made us shiver! By noon, it was a very comfortable 90 degrees (32 C). Yes, I definitely belong exactly where I am!
