We're leaving Saturday! Snow birding is sooooo much fun. We have fairly mild winters (compared to points north) but it's cold today.

Heading to a place near Miami/Homestead. Where are you near/at? It looks nice.

Last year we stayed a short while near Fort Pierce but were told by locals that to really escape the cold you needed to get below Lake Okeechobee. They were right. It may get chilly but the temp's rebound quickly. Where we are headed the projeted temp's are in the 70's by tomorrow.

22F this morning here. Way too cold for me.

We were at St. Augustine Beach for a week this summer (broke in the new TT there). We stayed at Bryn Mawr Resort. From your pic I can tell you're not there though because it looks way nicer than Bryn Mawr

If you like seafood there is a restaurant called Sunset Grill on A1A Beach Blvd that me and my wife liked very much. Lots of other great places to eat in that area.
