52 yr old Widow and Fur Kind Companion Moving from Cali to Florida

Jump to last reply

Not a native of California, only been here 12 years and though I fell in love with the landscape and my husband, now that he is gone, California leaves me quite isolated. My family is spread out from Indiana, Virginia and Florida and living in California has made it difficult to be close to my family. So the move is to get me closer to home so to speak. I'm a sunshine girl and want warm weather 24/7, or at least close to that thus Florida makes sense. My daughter is in Orlando, but she and I agree that I would probably prefer a coastal area. But where? I would like to be within a 2 hour drive to my daughter's home. She has mentioned a couple of places that she liked when looking for her current home. Jacksonville (which I've been too before), St. Augustine, and New Smyrna.

I would like an area that allows dogs on the beach. My fur kind is a large dog, not a pocket dog. He is a rotten lab, as my husband called him. LOL! Rottweiler and Black Lab and I'm not convinced of the Black Lab. Maybe Shepard. Oh no matter. He's my best friend right now and I have to consider his happiness as well.

It has been mind boggling and overwhelming trying to figure out from California where to move to in Florida. So any and all input is appreciated. Keep in mind my age ... I'm young at heart and far from retirement home living, but I don't want to live where there are only 20-30 year olds either!!

Look forward to hearing from you. Kristen
