Florida Reminds Me Of The Spanish Costas

I was searching for some photos the other day, there´s only 15,000+ on here so even a sophisticated filing system doesn´t work. I tried it out once and ended up in even more of a mess. It would only take about a month to create peace and harmony amidst them all, but I really couldn´t be assed. However there ARE files and folders, (follow the photo brick road) that make sense even if they sit amidst the cobwebs of my hard drive. Out of the blue (sky) up popped “Florida.” So I had a bit of a nosey, and it hit me how much alike it is to the Spanish Costas. I knew that anyway, yet seeing them again, well…

We´ve been to Florida many times over the years with the kids, done Disneyland, Universal studios, Sea World, MGM, Busch Gardens, Epcot, Kennedy Space Station, Gatorland etc. and mass produced hundreds of shiny photos that reside in a cupboard upstairs somewhere, (also outside of any decent filing system). PLUS if I tried scanning them, that would take another month, so sod that idea. But last time we went was different,, just us two on a road trip. No hotels booked, no agenda, just go,, so we did,, in our Doge Charger 3 litre automatic car… Oh and by this time the digital photo era had been invented…    

So ask yourself, is this Med coast of Spain, or Florida???

Do you get what I mean? Of all the awesome views I´ve posted of southern Spain on here (forget tiny Benidorm) the likeness is uncanny, except there´s no skyscrapers round here!

That´s why we chose this area of Spain to live in, it reminds us of our second home, Florida. (Minus the nightmare visa process). As a bonus, summer is slightly hotter here and there´s less rain, consequently we don´t need a “second home” anymore…
