Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Welcome to Fl. The weather is hot, humid, rainy and very unpredictable between Easter and Halloween. Don't expect to see fronts approaching from west to east, as you did in the midwest. Winds can come from all directions and change directions frequently. And, a wicked storm can just form on top of you without warning. You can't really trust a forecast beyond an hour in the summer. By contrast, the winter is mostly mild, and clear; you could not ask for better conditions.

If you are still near Hobe sound, you might want to take a day to ride through Jupiter Island. It's a beautiful ride, near zero traffic, but everything is private, so don't expect to stop anywhere on the island.

Well, the first pic does anyway. Second looks a lot like the Texas Gulf coast as well.

It's nice here on the space coast, too...well, now it is. We had a 0% chance of rain today, so it only rained for an hour this morning... I'm going to ride, too.

"You like it?", Noah said. "You think Cleveland is cool? I've never heard anyone say 'I'm going to Cleveland on vacation'".
