There are as many reasons as there are snowbirds as to why retirees head to warmer territory than their home state during the winter months. It’s not news to anyone who knows me that one of my top reasons is that I can be outside and enjoy nature.
The weather here is like everywhere else – up and down. But, we have had some beautiful, sunny, warm days in the mid 70’s. Those days are true gifts from Mother Nature. They allow walks on the beach, at the gardens, or just around a shopping area to enjoy hanging baskets and planters done up for spring. Yes, spring has sprung in South Carolina.
Besides the beautiful spring blooming flowers, there are also animals to enjoy.
We stay in touch with the weather at home because although we’re thrilled we don’t have to scrape and shovel, we know our daughter is clearing paths and driveways.
Two weeks from this coming Saturday, we point the Acadia north. Best part after getting hugs from family? We get to see a second spring. Of course, this one comes with yard work, but I’m ready. 🙂
