Happy New Year 2022

Jupiter Beach
Jupiter, Florida

I have to get used to writing 2022. I remember it took me almost until May last year to finally get comfortable with the date change.

Happy New Year.

I snapped the image used for the greeting while accomplishing a beach walk on Jupiter Island yesterday. The palm tree just stood there calling out to me surrounded by the blue sky. It was the beginning of quite a day in Florida and even as write this I am still a few hours short of exceeding my previous 38-hour abbreviated Florida trip, but remaining hopeful and having no plans for a sudden departure.

It was a different scene that we found last evening along US 1 in Tequesta as we were watching people set off fireworks to ring in the New Year. We walked, under the cover of darkness, from our condo to the US 1 to watch the fireworks that we could  barely see rising over the building in front of us and spied the forest of light wrapped palm trees along the road side. I have to admit, nothing says Christmas to me more that palm trees with their trunks wrapped in lights!

And now 2022 is underway, I wonder if this is the year we will finally beat COVID? WE can hope. It would be nice to be able to go play es again without showing proof of vaccination or worrying about contracting the virus. I can almost remember life during 2019, BC (before COVID).

One day at a time I guess.
