Christmas Away from Home

This lovely poinsettia tree greeted us in the Fort Myers, Florida, airport.
We rented a lovely home in Venice with a pool and an excellent location between the beach and downtown shops and restaurants... all within walking distance.  Here are my son and granddaughter enjoying the pool.

We spent a day visiting a friend who spends winters in Florida.  Here is my husband getting acquainted with the egret who regularly visits my friend's deck overlooking the intercoastal waterway.  Across the water we had lunch in Cortez, an older working fishing village with every kind of luscious sea creature available for purchase in the market. 

The unexpected bonus for me was a free daily yoga class on Venice Beach.   I attended every day.... it was rejuvenating!  We had a lovely holiday week with family and friends in a beautiful, friendly community.  Hope your holiday was special, too.

Thank you for coming to my blog and for your good wishes. I see you have a pretty granddaughter - we are near Nashville celebrating New Year with my daughter and her family – they have 3 sons – 5, 3 years and 5 months old. We enjoy playing with the grandsons – but they have so much energy! Have a great 2012 with much happiness and fun.
