A Much Needed Break

My husband is from Michigan and has many friends there.  Some of them are now retired, and have become "snow birds" getting away from Michigan winters in Florida.  Last week we went to visit two of them, including his college roommate.  Here are some of the photos I took.

We started out in Sarasota.  Our first day there was cool and cloudy, but we were still able to walk on the beach.  I took this photo from our room:

These are the two college roommates, sitting on the dock and reminiscing about "old times".  We stayed with them in Bonita Springs.

Here we are at the beach, where we went to watch the sunset:

We had drinks at this beach bar:

The next day we drove to Naples.  We stopped to have drinks at the Waldorf Astoria.  Nice place!  Look how pretty the sky was.  It had warmed up into the 80s by then.

We had a drink at the pool bar.

Continuing the theme, we drove to the Ritz Carlton, where we had a drink at the beach bar.  We weren't paying big money to stay at these luxurious places, but we enjoyed the ambiance.

I love beaches and beach bars!

Here we are, in vacation mode:

Yesterday, we flew home.  When we arrived, it was snowing.  Back to reality!

You look like you were having such a lovely time! But I bet the cats will have been pleased to see you come home....

I always miss the cats so much! Our next door neighbor takes good care of them, but I still worry when we are away. I was very, very happy to see them.
