Living in southern Ontario, winters can be dreary, cold and harsh, so we decided to go further south and have a rendezvous with our daughter, Jean who lives in Seattle. We haven’t seen each other since her last visit to Canada, summer 2010.
I saved time and money by packing only one small carry-on bag. The airline charges $30 to check in bags. This means a well-planned wardrobe, mixing and matching to get better mileage out of my outfits, is of utmost importance. No need to line up to check in a suitcase or the frustration of waiting for it afterward (and no possibility of it getting lost!).
First day in Florida: black cotton lacy top and khaki capris.
One of my hobbies is walking around neighborhoods to look at homes and gardens. Pompano Beach has some gorgeous houses with Mediterranean architecture and impeccable gardens with lush tropical plants, towering palm trees and exotic flowers.
Sunshine and warm weather – just what the doctor ordered!
Where do you go to escape the winter? Or are you lucky enough to live in Paradise?
