North Florida...

Spying on Ricky Martin from the balcony...

Made it to Tallahassee EARLY this morning and it was FREEZING! I thought Miami was cold at 63*, but North Florida was 35*! Of course wearing the clothes I was wearing didn't help, (picture someone about to go to the beach, that was me).

I bummed around all day with one of my sponsors. It was pretty cool getting the North Florida scoop from someone that actually knows North Florida (I was a South Florida gal). My first mission was to find my 500 pound kiss... Yeah, that dolphin I had back in Kona, I met his brother in Florida...

Then to the beach! No wet suit swimming felt more like an ice bath! After my swim I bumped into Shawna & Leslie! Who knew they would be in North Florida too... lots of people are here!

And to top off my evening, a sunset! Nothing beats a sunrise in the morning and a sunset in the evening! It is now 7:38 pm and this nerd is going to bed!

Buenos Noches!!

I thought at first after seeing your temperature gauge that it was really warm over there. It's 31 in the morning where I am versus 35 where you are. Only that mine is in C and yours is in F.
Enjoy the bopping at the concert.

I remember IMFL a couple of years ago....heading south from the Mid-Atlantic area we thought it would be warm! Errr...wrong, morning temps were in the mid-30's! Hope you are having fun.
