A meandering blog about things affecting me and my life in Bellingham, Washington.

So Florida is the same as I remember it: Flat, six lanes of endless homogeneous beige strip malls and gated communities. I hope we leave for The Keys sooner versus later, as I find Florida - any point north of Miami - to be bland and boring, a big suburb of endless sprawl with palm trees. I guess the area where we are staying is called Jupiter, although it looks excatly like any of the other hundred towns I've passed through on the Florida mainland.
But it's good to visit an old friend and I hope my mood changes to a more positive frame of mind. The sun was nice. And I did see three people that we less than sixty years old. Temperature in the sixties or seventies, sunny with a few clouds.
