Default A Day In So Florida

I was really appreciating the beautiful day while taking a drive down the coast today and thought I would share this view, it really doesn't get any better than this! I guess I'm ageing to where the little things in life mean so much.

Gee, that looks just like the sun rising over Lake Michigan here in Wisconsin. Where are your icebergs?

Well, I can't see the state of Michigan, but I can see Lake Michigan real easy. It's too big to miss.
No one is parking a nice old Ford along the shore now though.

Snow in winter is what we looked forward to as a child. You can’t make snowmen or snow angels in Florida. You’ve got the best of two worlds. I maintain my cottage in Michigan on the shores of Lake Huron where I grew up. A slice of heaven. You

If you put tire chains on our old Fords they go darn good in the snow, but I don't do that anymore either.
Florida looks good to me!

X2 what Jim in WI said, I have fond memories of bombing around in the snow in my '37 with tire chains back in the mid 60's.

Merc ....You're good, my friend! EVEN changed the shadow of the car on the road for those of you who didn't notice as much!! And the sun's reflection on the water still shows thru the windows. You get beyond an A+ in "Car-Foolery". Nice to see your Merc in full form. DD
