Oh, I'm going to miss the sunlight that streams through the windows of The Florida Kitchen. I'm actually going to miss the entire kitchen when we return home tomorrow to my slightly shabby Ikea kitchen. The previous owners installed a custom built, framed, solid cherry kitchen with blue eyes granite (has specks of blue crystals) and every built-in rack, pull out and do-dad imaginable. It's beautiful and functional and theydkid a great job with the design. I can't take credit for a single thing here. The original lead windows should probably be replaced with hurricane windows, but they are just too pretty to change.
We're making friends here in Florida. We've had two evenings with neighbors and feel totally at home with them. I'm torn between heading home and wanting to stay here for the summer. Today is for last day celebrations with a Vinoy Hotel breakfast, the Saturday Morning Market, an afternoon at Pass a Grille Beach and the evening at The Queen's Head pub to celebrate the Jubilee. Yes, we've found a little pocket of British here in St. Pete.
