Where I live in the world doesn't matter. Whom I am sharing the adventures with and what we are doing does. I am willing to modify my life. Are you??? Two way street. If you are really ready and able to consider life's opportunities, then ... it's time to get started. Have hybrid auto, will travel. I am now in the greater Tampa Bay for most of the Winter season.
For Winter - south for a warmer lifestyle. I am living a few miles due east of downtown Tampa on the Palm River. My goal is to live in a warm climate area from October into mid June. Then head to a different climate area for a few cooler, less muggy months.
Currently, I have a summer time cabin within a gated country club style resort near Annapolis, MD that lives and feels like a beach community but located inside of a forest. I have that up for sale so I can have more flexibility. I have made a number of offers to buy a Florida home in West Coast / Dunedin, FL which is one of the most active Celtic communities in Florida. I am waiting for one of my purchase offers to click. I like East Coast / Cocoa Beach, FL. Sarasota, Naples, and other Florida areas almost as well. I also vacation in Nassau. The common element is a warm weather climate during the winter.
I like to travel from where ever I call home. Since Feb 1, 2014, I have been to the Bahamas three times. Also weekend trips to Orlando, St. Augustine, Naples, and Ft Lauderdale, Savannah, and Charleston. Key West is in my sights for sometime this year. When north, I will head from Annapolis towards Newport, RI, Boston, upstate NY (the Finger Lakes) & Buffalo. Short trips north this summer will include Atlanta, Nashville or Louisville and then to Chicago, Cleveland, Buffalo, and into Ontario, Canada. This year I left Tampa in mid June to travel and was back by election day. Where would you like to go?
When left to do things by myself, I am into Celtic theme activities. FYI, most of Europe is a mix Celtic heritage and gene pool. I have three kilts and a great attitude about having an active social life. Day time, while in Florida, is for walks, kayaking, biking, learning to play golf, learning to cook differently for a healthier lifestyle. I consider myself overweight right now - not the stud muffin physical condition that I have had in the past. Others would say I am not that overweight. It is all in the eyes of the beholder. Anyhow, besides traveling, I enjoy looking at urban development ideas, real estate investing, sunbathing, swimming, socializing, reading, and stuff on the internet (not in any order).
Life is like a great candy store. I like to feel like I am living life fully. To paraphrase Emerson: "To suck the marrow out of the bones of life". I expect and want to dance, not just watch others dance. Are you dancing or are you watching? I don't believe in waiting for someone to get up to dance. Make eye contact, ask or I'll ask.
