It really is lovely to get away at this time of the year, when the weather is still somewhere between winter and spring. We were long overdo for a trip to Florida and a visit with my in laws. They have a beautiful home, with a pool and it makes for a very relaxing trip. Most days you could find me either in a lounge chair, reading a book, or floating in the pool. It felt wonderful to soak up all the sun we could and to tell the truth, I couldn't even be bothered to play golf. It was all about spending time by the pool, face to the sun and cocktail in hand.
After a morning of rain one day, we did take a short ride to Clearwater Beach; a favorite spot whenever we visit. We had an early dinner at Frenchy's Rockaway Grill, a casual restaurant right on the beach. My margarita was perfection and I was able to put my feet in the gulf at that magic time, right before sunset, when the sun sparkles on the water.
We also took a trip to watch the Detroit Tigers play a spring training game. It was a gorgeous afternoon to be at the ballpark; especially one with palm trees at the edge of the outfield. Being there made me so excited for opening day and baseball season.
But, as I said, this trip was about pool time, sunshine and making our long, cold winter nothing more than a memory.
Have a wonderful weekend.
