Today was one of those days that I let the weather get in the way. There was nothing really bad about the weather, just a handy excuse to do nothing.
The day started out foggy and humid. The fog lifted, but clouds remained through the middle of the day. Just as I was getting ready to go out in search of something fun to do, the forecast storm front arrived. I should have just kept going. If I had any real plan, I probably would have. As it is I turned the TV back on and picked up my tablet. The wind and rain only lasted a few minutes. The afternoon turned out to be partly cloudy, a little less humid and warm. It was too late. I was focused on reading with the TV providing background noise.
The fact that I haven’t been on the run every day to see things tells me I’ve been in the area too long. It isn’t that I’ve run out of things to see, just that I’ve hit the high points and need to search for more fun things. I can do that before I return to the area next year. I’ve been in Florida for close to 6 months now. I’m winding down here in the Tampa Bay area and I’m looking forward to getting on the road in the next few weeks.
