Merry Christmas from Florida

Well I'm not in Kansas Florida any more but I was last week.  Just a few photos to show now.  I have many, many that I will share later.

Christmas Tree on the beach on Captiva Island


Sunset on the Venice, FL beach


Lighthouse on the beach on Gasparilla Island


Lighted trees at Historic Spanish Point



I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year now as I probably won't get another post written until after the first of the year.  But I promise I will post lots more from Florida.  I could live here a few months during the winter!

Thanks for stopping by and I will get around to visiting you soon.  Until next time

You know I think I could do Christmas on the beach. I've had lots of White Christmases to last me a while.

How fun for you to have such a nice, warm trip :)
We spent Christmas in Hawaii one year, and it was a nice change from the cold and snow :)

Merry Christmas, and wishes for a wonderful New Year!!

One of these days I shall experience Christmas in a tropical area. I like the idea of a Christmas tree on the beach. Merry Christmas to you!

Happy New Year Florida sounds lovely! :)

Those views look a bit more the kind of thing I see at Christmas. All the snow shots don't look like Christmas here at all!

All pictures welcome on WBW.

Cheers and a Happy New Year - Stewart M - Melbourne
