After reaching 65 & finally retiring from our tied up job, all I want to do is travel.
I was exhausted & expected to sleep in everyday for a year or longer, but it only lasted a few weeks before I was ready to get active again. One of our first trips was to Toronto, Ontario to visit an outdated friend from school who had settled in Canada with his wife a few decades ago! I loved our trip to Canada, although I was surprised by the temperatures in Toronto being in the 60s while in May of all times of the year, although I l gained that they’re much farther north than most of the places that I’ve visited throughout our life. My main house is in the midwest, but I’m much farther south than Toronto. My second lake house is a condominium in Cocoa, Florida that I visit several times throughout the year. Now that I’m retired, I’ll be spending at least half of the year in Cocoa, although I need to make a few upgrades to the cabin first. I want to put a brand new heat pump in our cabin as temperatures get lower every year in Florida while in the late Winter season. Brevard County has had freeze warnings several times this year already. I haven’t been in Cocoa while in those evenings & now I’m upset that our few plants outside will be dead from the frost on those freezing afternoons. My friends in Melbourne to the south said that he had a thin layer of ice on his windshield, but there wasn’t any snowfall.
