3,100 words in the past two hours, on the pier over the lake. Only the herons, storks, hawks and an alligator for company. And warm, nice and warm.

Lake behind the hotel at ICFA, from the pier

I like it here.

I grew up in northern MN for the most part, and basically got fed up with snow and cold. It is why I am now a very happy Florida resident.

Any chance you're heading down to South Florida during your trip out here? My own fault for not paying enough attention before, as I would have made a visit to Orlando had I realized you'd be in town. :)

No, just Orlando. I'll be here through Sunday if you feel like making a trip up tomorrow. ICFA is at the Orlando Airport Marriott...

If you think Orlando is seductive, then try the Keys.

I love the Keys.

But I can't find a way to justify adding to the ecological impact of humans there, except for very occasional visits on my part.

And none of it is tolerable, in my experience, much past this time of year. But I am a cold and ice girl, and too much heat melts me. YMMV.
