We arrived in Naples last Wednesday to find that we hadn’t really escaped the rain after all. It seemed to have followed us all the way from Minnesota. Despite the thickest humidity i’ve ever encountered and sporadic monsoon rains, we managed to get our share of the Florida sunshine, and even have some pretty impressive tan lines to prove it.
When I spotted the ocean on the first day, my inner child was set free and I just stood there for the longest time while the waves crashed over my feet. The ocean truly does fuel me, and I’m so thankful that my mama and I could spend a few days by the sparkling blue water. I gotta hand it to you, Floridians. Somehow you manage to thrive in the Florida weather year-round. I’ll stick to short doses of your state’s goodness.
