Since my daughter, husband and only 2 grand children moved to Florida a year and a half ago my wife has been bugging to buy a place in their area of Palm City. For a year I was like no way, not doing it. The kids are 5 and 8. My wife flies down fairly often since she retired in June. The only way we can both go is to drive since we have to take Cooper our dog. We were down over the holidays and I must say that I really enjoyed the area and the weather. I would get up around 6-7am and head over to Henderson Island where they have multiple areas up and down the beach with public parking with nice bathrooms. I would drag my beach chair, tackle bag, rods and sand spikes over the dune and set up on a nice stretch of beach. Some days we would all go and others I'd go by myself. The beaches are nothing like Jersey you may only see another 10-20 people. The fishing was great Pompano, bluefish and black tip shark. If I had my boat I could be fishing just a short distance off the beach for sailfish, wahoo, and many other species.
There are many great restaurants, and micro breweries in the area. So it changed my mind. Plus the fact that we are missing our grand children grow up. So when my wife was there two weeks ago she found the perfect place on Henderson Island in a recreational community and we went for it. I'll have a boat slip in the communities marina the beach is within walking distance or a short ride in your golf cart. So I'll be snow birding for awhile. Then most likely selling the Aston home. No more snow for me.
