Sunlit Florida

DH and I are celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary this summer and we decided to start the year off with a month in Florida.  The joys of retirement; the whole month of February spent walking, swimming, eating and shopping - and not necessarily in that order!
We were fortunate to have great weather for travelling and we did the 24 hour drive over two and a half days.  The temperature has been in the mid 70's to 80's since our arrival and it's sheer bliss.
I'm linking with Karen at My Little Home and Garden for Sunlit Sunday and Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.
The top small photo is the sun hitting the side of the car and reflecting from the mirror.  The inland waterway is the view from our balcony as it lights up the water every evening.
Please join my hosts and their guests for more sunlit photos and mosaics.
