I'm having a great time visiting some family in Florida this week. Since I left NH, I've missed a snowstorm and frigid temperatures, and I will be missing another storm this weekend. I'm one lucky girl!
My days here have been filled with reading, sunbathing, swimming, eating out, and wearing my beloved flip-flops! And the sun. Oh the sweet, sweet sun.

I'm also excited because I have been doing so much traveling by myself over the last few years that flying solo has become very easy and (almost!) non-stressful. Hmmm, repeat an action multiple times and then it gets easier? Where have I heard that before?
So yesterday, we went to visit the Myakka River State Park. It was so beautiful. The best part of all? I didn't have obsessions about almost anything while we were there! We did a river boat tour, and saw at least a dozen alligators sunning themselves on the
banks. We followed that with a tram ride through other parts of the park. During the ride, the tram driver passed a little bit of vegetation around for us to touch. I had a brief thought of possible contamination from all the other visitors touching it too, but I didn't let it stop me.

I should have challenged myself more by using the restroom there, but hey, that's for another day. The only thing I did later was to wash my hands just one time quickly before lunch.
