Longing for a Tropical Beach

February 2015 Snow ©Mary Montague Sikes
When I look out my writing studio window at all the snow covering the hillsides of our woods, I cannot help but long for the warmth of tropical beaches. After all, the temperature last night hovered around zero. The creek is frozen over, and the three rivers that surround our little town are icy as well.

Resort at Los Cabos
A tropical retreat would look good right now. Perhaps a return trip to Los Cabos in Mexico. We love to travel. A beach is much nicer than the snow. However, both tropical destinations and the snow and ice in our own backyard make great subjects for reference photographs to use in future artist workshops.

Still, I'm longing for a tropical beach!

We've been that cold here, but as usual, just wait and the weather changes. Today we are forty degrees warmer.
