My uncle use to have a boat in Florida. While I don't like to go out on the open ocean, all that much, I do enjoy riding up and down the water inlets. It's sort of like a Sunday drive in Scituate or Duxbury, looking at the nice houses along the water. My uncle no longer has the boat in Florida but luckily, I can still look out at these water inlets from the road (just can't go down the middle of them).
This is what I picture when I think of Florida…nice green lawn, palm trees and a boat waiting in the backyard. I think I could handle living in one of these areas…at least for a couple of months. I'd even take a jet ski over a big boat!
