Back In Time


Just when all the snow slowly melted away, we were blasted again with another 7 inches. Ugh. It's mid winter here in Southern Pennsylvania and it's that time of year when I start longing for a vacation or at least some warmer weather and a sunny day at the beach. It's that time of year when I like to close my eyes and take my mind and soul back to Daytona Beach Shores, Florida. It is where I spent many a weekend when I lived in Florida over 17 years ago.

The warm wind blowing in from off of the ocean....the smell of the sea air....the sting of summer on my skin.....the feel of the sand beneath my feet ~ ah...summer time...

I love taking that journey back in time. This Kenny Chesney song reminds me of my days in Daytona. Even though the video was filmed in California and South Carolina, Kenny wrote the song about his Spring Break vacation in Daytona, Florida. 

I think I will take a listen now so Kenny can once again take my mind back to the beach and I can feel the warmth of summer time. Won't you join me?

They were some good times way back when...how lucky we were to have a place in Daytona Beach...a neat little town!

UGH is right. I'll close my eyes and join you on the beach.

I'm not sure I could go back to snow. Love the sunshine. I like alot of Chesney's songs. (At first I thought you were going to refer to Zac Brown's song Toes in the Water, @$$ in the Sand song :)

People in PA dream of Daytona. People here in UT dream of San Diego. I'm ready for either.

My wife loves Kenny. I remind her he is bald under that hat.

More snow here, too. I am seriously starting to miss Hawaii and quickly forgetting that emotionally
I am much happier here than I was there!
