Great post! The fresh fish in FL is amazing. Anyone who's ever grilled up a 10 oz genuine florida red snapper with olive oil, lemon, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper knows what you mean!
"They ah...get a nice sea breeze" !!! That's hilarious man! How much does Disney in July suck?!?!? Waiting in lines of 100 plus people in 95 degree stifling air.
You get it. It's not for everyone. I hated having to pay winter storage for my boat when I lived in New England. Pay extra and not use your boat. But I love New England. Hell, I'm there working right now.
I love everything about the water. I love going to spring training games. I live in west central Florida. Sure the summer is long and it gets humid. But the hottest I have been in years was about 5 years ago in Bar Harbor when it was 100 degrees on the weekend I was there. Yikes, the AC was poor to nonexistent there. (but I love Maine) Two years ago I was in Denver in the summer. One hundred and five degrees the first five days I was there. Dry heat my azz. Pretty place. Could use a few trees.
It has never reached 100 degrees in Tampa since they started recording such things. It's not a perfect place but if it's right for you that's great.
Rusty is in a good place in the Carolinas. I have worked there and just love the Carolinas. Especially the low country of South Carolina.
Make the best of where you are. Wherever you are is the best place to be. For me, Florida is great around the edges.
