Fun In the Sunshine State – Days 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9

So… I have been scarce around here, haven’t I?

We’ve been enjoying our vacation and have been spending more time outside than online, which, I suppose, is how it should be.

The previous five days here have been much like the first four I documented… beautifully warm, sunny and enjoyable.

On Thursday Brian and I drove about 45 minutes north to a tweet-up at Four Seasons Palm Springs, where I finally met my Twitter friend and wine aficionado Matt Horbund face-to-face after communicating through social media for almost three years!

The Four Seasons was A-MA-ZING.

The view… the service… the food… just totally top-notch all the way.

The staff was beyond attentive and the (very reasonably-priced) appetizers Brian and I shared were absolutely incredible.

On Friday Brian and I went jet-skiing in the ocean.

It was a little choppy and it got chilly the longer we were out there, but we had a great time, and it was cool to see the coastline from out in the ocean.

And, of course, we watched the gorgeous Super Moon rise.

It’s times like these I wish I had a higher-quality camera than my iPhone!

The weekend was more fun and sun… in fact, we haven’t had a rainy day yet! And I hear that even though spring has finally arrived, it’s still quite chilly back home in Rhode Island – so I’m going to soak up all the sunny, 80-degree weather I can!

(Even though it’s vacation, I’ve been keeping up with work (and running!) while down here in Florida… so if you want to read more, check out my latest running column here!

And my latest Providence Journal article (“Tips to get back into running shape”) came out in today’s Thrive section… you can read that here!)
