Welcome to Florida!

What to say about Florida?  It’s hot and humid.  There are lots of bugs.  It is hot and humid.  There are thunderstorms most every afternoon.  It is hot and humid.

Did I Mention it is hot and humid?  And there are lots of bugs?

Poor Karen…  She reacts terribly to the bite of the ubiquitous no-see-um.  They don’t bother me much at all, but she gets awful itchy welts from every nibble those tiny little blood suckers take.  Slowly we are getting the problem under control.  Finding the right repellents, finding products that stop the itch, and staying away from places where they are most numerous.

Oh, and it is hot.  And humid. On the bright side, there are sea turtles in the marina.  And manatees, and dolphins, and numerous kinds of fish.

Our weekend project is to unload the moving container with all the “stuff” I moved off the boat in California.  We bring a half-dozen boxes down to the boat, bring them below (into the air conditioned cabin!) and then try to figure out logical places to put things. Then go and grab more boxes, etc. etc. It should take a few days to get everything on-board and then a few more to get the storage locations sorted out.

Weather forecast:  Hot and humid with numerous afternoon thunderstorms.

    I don’t know why anyone would want to live there year round. OK for 4-5 months out of the year, that’s about it.

    I am like no-see-um candy. They eat me alive and I itch for days afterward big red blobs all over me.
