Back from Florida and Boston and NYC. Should really visit there more often. Yes, even Florida.
For the first time ever didn't go anywhere at all in Boston, just spent my time seeing people, and still didn't see everybody I wanted to see.
This was my first time in Florida, and it was quite lovely, much better than expected. They have sandy beaches, and warm sea, and little lizards, and iguanas, and weird-looking turtles, and weird-looking birds, and flying fish.
Like almost any American I occasionally have some grievances against the federal government, but I could never imagine that I'd add "they hid all the crocodiles and alligators in Florida" to the list. But they did. We didn't get to visit Everglades or see any crocodiles at all.
Realized I actually like beaches quite a lot as long as there is no hot yellow thing in the sky.
Wish I could have taken some pictures of the flying fish, but they absolutely refused to pose in midair.
