My Dot on the Map: Homesick

I was browsing my Reader and there were so many beautiful photos of fall color that I got a tinge of homesickness – longing for Michigan color. We drove to southern Florida last weekend – before the peek color in Michigan. I made the decision to go south because cold, cloudy, damp weather was forecasted for the week in Michigan and my body doesn’t do well in those conditions. However, Florida is unseasonably warm so I am unable to get out with my camera until the weekend cool down. I made the right decision but I still need to pull out some of the color photos I took before I left.

There, now I feel a little better. These transitions are sometimes hard to adjust to because I love being in both places – and sometimes the grass is greener and the trees more colorful at the other latitude.

  1. The colors are beautiful. But – I’d like to be in FL right about now. This am when I left the house it was 28°. The high only reached upper 40s maybe low 50s – maybe.

      • I happen to (luckily from my perspective) live just inland enough to be in a heavy snowbelt. We got several inches and it was absolutely gorgeous. Most of it’s dropped from the trees (they’re sighing their relief), but it’s still piled on the ground.
