My Other Honey visited us this past Easter weekend. This is our Easter picture. You can't really tell but we are all wearing a spring blue, we matched beautifully!
We spent the weekend at the beach. See, My Other Honey comes from a harsh winter and rainy spring so this 85 degree sunshine is exactly what he needed.
I just love the beach. I realized this weekend in talking it out with My Other Honey that our visitors from San Diego never mention a desire to go to the beach when they are here. It's always the typical... Disney World, Sea World or Universal Studios. I realized that San Diegians *have* a beach and it's only a big deal two times a year when it gets above 78. Before I moved to Florida, beaches were drab, cold and overcast and the water is just too cold to every fully enjoy. Florida beaches on the other hand don't have a "marine layer", it's as hot on the beach as it is inland (which means the beach can get over 100 degrees during the summer) and the Atlantic/Gulf of Mexico is warmer than the Pacific. Also, because the beach is so warm, the water is refreshing and enjoyable.

I love San Diego but when you know nothing different (as I did), you really believe San Diego beaches are the end of the line. Sorry, but it's simply not true. Love ya. Mean it. But there is nothing like a **warm** beach. Makes me wonder what other beaches are out there and who knew I was a beach bum?
Like every visitor we've had, it's sad to see them go. Someone recently asked me if I missed the social life we had in San Diego and my response was, it's not hard to be lonely when people visit us so frequently. =) We are blessed with magnificent family and friends! My Other Honey is one of the greatest!!
