It's that time again! We can hardly believe it's Christmastime already, especially since we're in central Florida, where the balmy temperatures lull us into thinking it's still summer.
This entire year has been kind of seasonally upside-down for us, as we began the New Year in tropical Playa del Carmen, Mexico, then flew into Florida, where we bought Pearl and spent the rest of the winter. Summer brought us snow in Yellowstone National Park in August and several other spots with below-freezing temperatures and frost at high elevation. And now we're back enjoying a winter holiday season with temperatures in the 80s. No wonder we're confused!
We never got around to taking a Christmas photo this year, so I'll close with this one from 2013 at Ocean Isle Beach, one of my favorites. Sure, all of us are a few years older and have a few more gray hairs, but who's countin'?
Our sincere wish to our friends, families, and other readers is for a very Merry Christmas and happy holiday season!
Emily & Barry
We're a long-married, early-retired couple who are currently traveling as nomads with no fixed home base. After years of living in North Carolina (Emily's home state), we spent 18 months living oceanfront on Ambergris Caye, Belize, a year road-tripping the US in a Honda CR-V, a year in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and are now roaming North America in our 32' motorhome, Pearl, following warm weather whenever possible.
