Wednesday’s Office: Kitchen table, Florida stylePosted: March 14, 2012
I’ve been living-full time in Seattle for nearly 17 years now, and every winter there is a point when I seriously consider packing it in and moving back to Florida (to New Smyrna Beach in particular). This year I’ve made the fantasy a reality and have escaped (parts of) the long, miserable Seattle winter for sun and the beach.
New Smyrna Beach (NSB) is a little town of about 22 thousand residents. This is roughly half the size of my West Seattle neighborhood. Everything is within a 10 minute drive (or less) and parking is never a problem. NSB is, however, sadly lacking in internet cafés, but it more than makes up for it with the beautiful beach, starry skies, and 75 degree temperature (I hear it snowed in Seattle yesterday).
Since I can’t really work at the beach and there aren’t a lot of cafés, I mostly sit here at the kitchen table. I can see a little canal and lots of wildlife, like egrets and anoles, and I can WFH (work from hammock) when I have thinking to do.
