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 moving to Dunedin in August into a new-to-me villa. I'll spend most of the Winter season there. This past season ended at the end of April. I am now in my northern travels. This week Annapolis. Retirement is wonderful.
My goal is to live in a warmer climate area than the US NE from Late September into mid June. Then head to a different climate area for a few less muggy months. For example, that could be the NC Piedmont or the NE US or even the US western states.
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 is located inside of a forest. I am moving to Dunedin, FL on the West Coast above Clearwater. It is one of the most active Celtic communities in Florida and the US. I also vacation in Nassau. Since Feb 1, 2014, I have been to the Bahamas three times. The common element is a warm weather climate during the winter.
I also like weekend trips to places like Orlando, St. Augustine, Naples, and Ft Lauderdale, and Savannah. Key West is in my sights for sometime this coming 2015-2016 year. When north, I may head from Annapolis towards Newport, RI or Boston, upstate NY (the Finger Lakes) & Buffalo. Short trips north this summer already includes a trip to Cleveland, Buffalo, and the NYS Finger Lakes region. This past 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 do Celtic theme activities. 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 do consider myself overweight. I have 25 pounds to lose to be a stud muffin. 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.
