Teresa and I celebrated our birthdays last week in the Florida Keys. Although my Mother is from Florida, I had never visited anything south of Miami. I love the ecosystems and the individual beauty that each island displays.
We had dinner with one of Teresa’s cousins and her husband. Her husband is a veterinarian and they have lived on Marathon Key for many years. We talked about the transient nature of the residents. Most folks stay about three years and either run out of money or miss their friends and move back home.
I know that I missed my friends and family. The beauty of the area was wonderful to visit, but living in the area did not appeal to me.
What is it that makes us wish to live in places that we vacation?
