I've Got A Beach In My Back Yard with yearning... We yearn no more and our palm trees are NOT plastic! We're THERE!
Amidst a whirlwind schedule of activities with our kids and repairmen, punctuated by the Deep Freeze of January 6-7... (we've finally managed to escape the REAL cold)... we found ourselves with sunshine and a free afternoon!
Our memories of all the cold anchorages and blustery windy sails of recent weeks melted away. While Bruce people-watched, I closed my eyes and drifted while the sun, although weak, gently warmed my skin. I could feel it knocking out all those bad cloudy thoughts, allowing room for the sunny good thoughts to resume their rightful place in my head.
I'll admit that I was almost a Goner! My attitude had suffered a near fatal hit. I could NEVER live in a place where the sun seldom shines. I NEED it! While Clearwater Beach is more "touristy" than the beaches of our dreams... today, it's the beach in our backyard and we're lovin' it!
