First Time Snowbirds
My husband and I are newly retired from CT who rented a condo in the Mandarin, Jacksonville area of FL. We ended up here when my son was living and working here but has since moved back to CT.
The long snowy cold winters of New England with ice dammed roofs causing ceiling leaks frozen pipes back breaking snow shoveling cancelled plans made up our mind to sell the family home and share our time between FL and CT.
Since this is our first year we are still finding different things to do and see. We go down to Jacksonville Beach about once a week to walk the beach, have lunch, shop and just relax.
We've gone down to St Augustine to walk around the shops and site see.
We go to the gym every morning to exercise and we have hooked up with a church here in the area and have already done some volunteering which we both love to do and meet people.
We would love to hook up with other Jacksonville Area snowbirds that may wish to get together for an occasional dinner out or to join us in exploring other places to see in the area.
My husband and I are both in our 60's who've had great careers in public safety and health care.
