Happy New Year 2014
After Christmas Eve and Day at Jekyll Island with friends, Betsy and Jim, we cruised on to St. Augustine where we had a short visit at A1A Alehouse with Kelly and her daughter who was home from college. Even though it was not much more than a cameo appearance, it was wonderful to see them and know that all's well in their world.

New Year's Day we continued our trek south to New Smyrna Beach where our sweet friends, John and Cozette, “held” their traditional Southern New Year's Day dinner until that evening when we arrived so that we could have all the fabled fortune that black-eyed peas,
collards, and pork provides to those who partake of that on the first day of the new year.

|For all our friends above the frost line!|
|Now we're in sweet little Vero Beach|
Continuing south to North Palm where we found great cycling/running/walking paths.
|Now this weather's more like it!|
|I'd say this is some serious shrink-wrap at Rybovich in West Palm|
|Just north of DelRay we saw this sad sight|
|You can see their soaked belongings on the dock|
|Boca Raton Resort|
|Quite a lovely spot. I was Queen Laura for a day there couple years ago. Definitely something addictive.|
|Yay! Finally in Ft. Lauderdale on the New River wall in our usual spot. We do so love this place. Great cycling/walking/running/PEOPLE WATCHING!|
|Had appointment with Apple Genius. There's something about the smell of that store that keeps me coming back...and back....|
|Sun in my eyes and my driver turned corner too fast--explanation for tops of sails being severed.|
|Night time offers different flavor|
|Time to bid farewell to Ft. Lauderdale and we continue south.|
