My cabin fever remedy was a "delirious" trip from 
OHIO to FLORIDA for the entire month of February.  

Family and friends said 
"When you retire you have to come down and stay awhile".

We did "JUST THAT" for the month of February
and Florida became our home away from home.

First week we house sat for my sister (Ruth)  and BIL (Roger)  in Dunnellon (near Ocala) 
and enjoyed some golf, a great pool and the community center. 

I did a little sewing with the quilters in her community.  

Then on to Arcadia to spend a few days with our "current" OHIO neighbors, 
who snow bird in the winter.
Check out this Sandhill Cranes aka "Gooney Bird" hanging out
near the lake in their community.

Next stop, Fort Myers, to visit with our "former" OHIO neighbors
Pier at Fort Myers Beach

My DH birthday was on the 19th and my gift to him was
a trip to Key West - and the southern most point in the US

Beach style homes and beautiful landscapes!

Our "cabin fever" journey then took us up the west coast to relax on the gulf beaches.

A day at Venice Beach, FL

with a quick stop to see the black sand beaches of Venice
(can you say sharks teeth)

Next stop, Siesta Key Beach
white sand like powdered sugar...no reuse needed 
retirement has me relaxed and getting my Vitamin D fix..
no pills required!

Next stop was a beautiful harbor town, very quaint, full of art and great restaurants and definitely "Scotttish"  

 I have been to Dunedin, twice before and 
this is the reason!  LQS touted as Florida's largest shop!

Back to my Ruth and Rogers' place for another week
and more line dance lessons, taught by my Roger!
Hey, it beats taking a walk and you know I love to dance!

 Ruth and I doin the "gooney bird" dance...our own choreography!

but just sew you know I did a bit of sewing
before I broke Ruth's sewing machine! 
Last time we were
together I backed into her car !
Do ya think it's sibling issue?   LOL

We had sew much fun that next winter 
we are gonna "snow bird" and rent a place for 3 months.
