According to my phone ...

It's currently 44°F outside.
And I just walked outside for some lunch with just a sweatshirt.
No hat.
No gloves.

It's been an incredibly mild winter so far. If I were the superstitious type, I'd say I shouldn't type that out. That it will only ensure cold, cold winter days ahead. Luckily (hehehe) I don't go for all that.

It's been nice.
And I'm not complaining at all.

In January 2010, we went on a trip to the USVI - St Thomas.
In January 2011, we went on a trip to Costa Rica.

There will be no trip in January 2012.
There will be no grabbing of our wetsuits and jumping in the ocean.

At least the bright sunny days and relatively warm weather doesn't make me want to desparately look forward to a non-forthcoming vacation at the beach.

Besides, by this time next year, we'll be living in a sunny location where I won't be freezing my a** off every winter.

Our future destination is still to be determined but it will certainly be somewhere sunnier and warmer and near the ocean. Jeff would live in his wetsuit, if I let him.

Okay. Maybe not.

But we are still focusing on summertime when we can don our gear and get back into the lakes. AND THEN move to wherever the wind blows us next.

Our adventure is just beginning.

In the meantime, we'll likely be jumping in a big aquarium to check out some sharks. Stay tuned for more on that later.

  1. It was almost 70 here today! It seems so crazy to be so warm so early.

  2. I cannot like this post. It makes me sad when you move away. :(

    But, I do enjoy reading about your adventures.

  3. The crazy weather of summer has continued right into winter. What a weird weather year. I am looking forward to seeing where you land when the wind blows you!
