Yesterday, I traveled to Manatee Beach on Anna Maria Island. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Maria_Island)
It was a cold noon time, with the temperature between 45 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The beach is usually very crowded, but yesterday, there were few people. Everyone I met was a visitor from cold country (northern Illinois, Colorado, near Minneapolis, Niagara Falls, Ft. Wayne, Rapid City, Vermont, and Buffalo). They said they would gladly accept a cold day in Florida over the ridiculously cold temperatures they left back home. (Most people mentioned temperatures below zero!)
The sun was shining and the beach was lovely….
