Last weekend we escaped the bitter cold of January and jetted off to Florida. I’ve never been a huge fan of the state, but we were lured in with cheap airfare and an invitation to visit a friend’s parents in their 6,000 square foot villa. It. Was. Awesome.
We spent most of the time guzzling cocktails, swimming in the luxurious pool, and eating amazing food prepared by our gracious hosts.
On Friday we visited Lover’s Key State Park, which was a really lovely gulf beach to wander around, and not crowded at all. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any manatees, who usually frequent the area.
The community we stayed in was called Mediterra, which is pretty much a luxury golf community in between Naples and Bonita Beach. The homes were really spectacular. And if you’re into golf, the holes that we saw were all very beautiful.
I hope everyone has a chance to escape to warmer climates this winter. Or if you don’t have the chance, do like I did when we lived in Brooklyn: crank up the heater, put on some summer clothes and pretend.
