The photo here is an older one of someone running in the surf near St. Augustine. Our trip to Florida was great, and yes we really enjoyed the heat. Some have no interest in weather that is as hot as it is in Florida this time of year. However, the highest temperature while we were there was just 93 degrees Fahrenheit. We did get a photo of the temperature gauge in the car showing it was 106, but we knew that was not an accurate reading. For us, the days spent in Florida were too few. We will return to our favorite areas there soon. Have you had a chance to visit out of your area lately?

I'm glad you had a good trip to Florida. I haven't left the state since I moved here back in 1991.

Sometimes the trip back seems long enough we wonder why we went @just4him

@Lupita234 Florida is having very warm weather now and soon it will be too hot for us to go to the beaches there.

We used to go to the beach , when its summer. However, experience taught us that its hard to find a cottage to rent when its summer, because there are lots of people going to the beach so early to be able to rent a cottage and take their swim.

Life was easier when there were more places to rent in Florida. Seems the prices can be out of reach now @SIMPLYD

@PatZAnthony It's that way too here now. Prices seem always going up but not much for the salaries.

It's a nice state to visit, but the humidity gets to me so I couldn't live there.

It is difficult for some to breathe with the humidity so high and forget it if you have curly hair @Susan2015

I remember how hot Florida is at mid-May, we used to go there around my hubby's birthday, who was last 14th of May. We went nowhere, my husband has plenty of doctors appointments.

Temperature can seem much hotter if the humidity is high. Cars can get very hot if left in the sun too.

I'd love to be able to spend time in Florida, but the furthest south I've ever been is NC to live in for two years, and TN to spend a weekend at a class. We didn't do any sightseeing while in TN other than sitting in the opry house which is what we used for our classes. I don't mind the heat either, although I don't think I like it quite as much as I did when younger. My husband hates the heat, so I think I've had to get used to being happy with lower temps a bit more, but I'm still usually cold if it's under eighty degrees and may need a sweater. Even though I do like the heat, I doubt I'd go when it's that hot there.
