And we arrived just in time to see everyone's Christmas decorations still up
(Well there are 12 days of Christmas). Now this arrangement probably wouldn't work in western New York..
Where, in normal years, we tend to get a bit of snow. 2015 was an exception, though we still
haven't had to resort to this..
What Florida lacks in appropriate climate, it makes up in whatever way possible
Each in its own way
It's like strolling through a fairyland
But I see what they mean
This is normally a pergola draped with a flame vine resplendent with orange blossoms. Now it's turned into a sky full of stars
Even the devotees of the cycle path, aka trail, got in on the act
You could call this a palm tree maypole
Meanwhile, fireworks and champagne corks have been popping all along Golden Beach since sunset, an elderly gentleman's radio crackling out Auld Lang Syne in a 1930s dance arrangement while children let out for the holidays frolic in the unseasonably warm surf. We've had British New Year already, so I'll say goodnight and have a happy one!
