From one extreme to another (posted by Lani)
That's how the past two weeks were for me; from Colorado to Florida, from layering a blouse and two sweaters and a jacket and hiking through areas where there was still snow on the ground, to watching the porpoises in the bayou behind mom's house and walking barefoot through the hot sand at the beach.

It was absolutely gorgeous in Panama City this week. I flew down on Monday and Laurie and Alex picked me up in Tallahassee; we drove back home and went with Mom and Dad to the Bonefish for dinner, which was (as always) extremely nice. The week was relaxing and lots of fun; Laurie and I went to Seaside and poked around which was fun, and I have to say I was totally amazed at how built up 30-A is now. Do you remember, Annie, when we used to take the beach buggy down there to go crabbing and beaching with the Howells? It's like another world now.
I'm trying to think of other things to tell you. Um ... it was nice? It was quiet. We went to the Club for dinner on Wednesday night with Marshall and Ann Evans and JuliaAnn; we had Dad's birthday dinner at home on Thursday; I wasn't able to get home on Friday so Mom and I did a little antiquing; and on Saturday I left.
