    Oh man, normally I am not a big pool person, but it has been so hot this summer, that pool sounds like it would be wonderful!

    Well, we are learning that in Florida in the summer everything gets done early in the morning or in the evening. We went to the farmer's market today and were back home by 11 am. We will make the daily pool trek this evening. Otherwise, we are enjoying resting and watching the Olympics in the afternoons.

    My husband's plan to convince me that I do not want to live here year round when we retire is backfiring. It is hot, yes, but livable. The evenings are lovely.

    It's also relatively cheap, has no income tax, and your NY teacher's retirement is actually a decent chunk of change down in sunny FL. Come to the darkside, become a Floridian
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    It is our plan to retire near Jax, near the Mayo, probably Amelia Island. I will tell you from personal experience that Grandparents who live near the beach get a lot more visits than Grandparents who do not!

    We are actually hoping that by the time we sell our house we can afford to do a small condo here near downtown Nashville so we can still take advantage of the night life, and a small condo at the beach. If not we will bag the nightlife and live at the beach!

    I meant cheap as compared to other places NY, San Diego, San Francisco etc.

    I was surprised to find out that the lovely homes in my inlaw's gated community only go for about $220,000. They live on the outskirts of Sarasota, but are 10 minutes from downtown and 15 from the beaches. I think we will definitely become snowbirds, but retirement is at least 11 years away. I'll have to keep up with my Primal goals so that I can be a hot grandma in Florida. lol

    My parents live in New Smyrna Beach on the east coast. They have a small home (1400 sq ft) a few blocks off the beach. They paid 175,000 for it 13 years ago. It is worth more now, but not more than 250,000. They do drive to the mainland to grocery shop as the store on the Island is pricier, but that is just 10 minutes further away. They do go to Jax for the big medical, stay close to home for the little stuff. There is a local theater that is quite good and very cheap, and other than that entertainment consists of walking the beach and puttering around the house. Sign me up!

    Yeah me too.

    My husband and I went out to a Tapas bar last night (OMG the roasted peppers), then we went to St. Armand's Circle for some shopping. I bought a brecelet and some earrings. We also made a family name plate with Spanish tile. It will hang next to our front door.

    The best part was that I dressed up in a white skirt and sleeveless blouse. My husband didn't know that I was going to dress up. It was the first time in many years that I saw the "OMG, My wife is Hot!"reaction in his eyes. My inlaws were also complimentary. Really good for the ego.
