Just kidding about the beach comment above,.. thought it'd be a good way to get your attention. And now that I have it....
Am a healthy, down to earth guy looking for the same in a woman. Love Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain. ( smile ) A transplant from New York City, just mesmerized by the great Florida weather, - the year round scent of the sea ; the pristine sandy beaches ; palm, magnolia & mango trees ; watching the cormorants, eagles and ospreys diving for their food, etc. Have converted totally to the southern lifestyle,..proof being,.. if I ever hear Jim Reeves singing " Am I losing you ? ", - I will stop whatever I am doing and listen wistfully ! ( smile )
I have seen the world as few have, now more interested in checking out places within the US, especially those quiet, off the beaten path " Old Florida " towns. Maybe a weekend in Everglades City,...enjoying lunch at the 130 yr old Rod & Gun Club there ? Meandering thru the greatest-roadless-wilderness in the United States,... that is what the Everglades City area is all about,...the home of the legendary " Totch " Brown.
Also as special and intoxicating is the still-primitive Cayo Costa Island Preserve,..an undeveloped Gulf front island where I still cannot control the reflexive glance offshore on the chance of glimpsing a Spanish galleon !
However, traveling alone has become a bore ! And to think that both places are within a 2 hour commute from where I live ?? ARE YOU KIDDING ME ? ( smile )
Am not upgraded, so need a short msg on initial contact !
After a few emails & a phone chat, a " first date " in this case is really an informal, early afternoon get together to explore the possibilities,.- so lets keep it simple. A couple of drinks, coffee, coke at a nice, quiet bar/restaurant sounds fine to me.
