Living in Paradise
(Fort Myers, FL)
Back in the 80’s when I was in my 20’s I lived on Fort Myers Beach. This was short lived for only two years in order to seek other career opportunities elsewhere. Decades had passed whilst moving town to town, state to state over the years.
Every time the first snowfall hit I’d tell myself, “Someday I will find myself back in Florida so that I never have to deal with the cold again.” Years and years go by and I’m still stuck in the colder climates wishing I could be on the beach.
It was about 2 years ago while working a seasonal job that I decided to take a quick vacation to Florida from a northern state during the month of February. After spending three weeks enjoying paradise, I made it my mission in life to permanently relocate very soon.
I worked my tail off that summer saving up money and making plans for the big move. It was Halloween of 2011 that I made the big trip, found my place in paradise and am permanently re-located. I am now in the place I call home with the beaches, tropical plants and exotic wildlife.
