I've taken some bashing about my habit of pointing out the shortfalls of living in Florida, so I thought I'd post some of the things I'll miss about the State in general and St. Petersburg in particular.

In no particular order:

Smoked mullet

Cuban cooking-especially roast pork with yuccas on the side.

Haslam's Bookstore.

Good old fashioned Duncan grapefruits-none of those overly sweet Pinks for me

Outdoor activities in January and February-the rest of the year? Not so much.

WMNF and WUSF, but I can get those on the Web.

Downtown St. Petersburg.

The Florida Orchestra.

Fresh caught Gulf shrimp, fried ever so lightly.

Osceola National Forest.

Cattle Egrets-they crack me up for some reason.

The Dali Museum.

Did I mention smoked mullet?

Well, I moved out. Actually, I can't sell my house in Florida and am now renting a place up north. I miss one thing only found in Florida, the lizards.
