This is by way of consoling friends elsewhere who might be a little jealous. Yes it does rain in Florida.
Well that was last weekend. Today was a little better.
Though the surf is still up from the cold snap.
This week has been what Americans call "spring break", a sort of cross between half-term and the Easter holidays. Local schoolkids are on the loose and the beach actually has more sandcastles than zimmer frames. Older spring-breakers, those of university age, are more notorious in their behaviour though they tend to seek out livelier places than this. Which is fine by me. This morning it was like Piccadilly Circus on the beach - I spotted all of four other people.
Meanwhile back at base here's the orchid tree in the sun.
And boogie-woogie too
