It’s been a little over two months since we’ve moved to Florida. From pine trees to palm trees, from being able to drive 3 hours and be in another state to driving 3 hours and landing in Miami.
While we have been adjusting to our new environment and exploring the local scene, Gant is doing his best figure out his daily routine. Like most dogs, he is a creature of habit, and likes schedules. I have read it can take up to a year for a dog to feel comfortable in a new home.
There has been a lot of changes, from a 3 bedroom apartment on a boarding school campus to a house on a suburban neighborhood. From acres of land to run around on to a fenced in yard with a small area of grass.
It is different, but there are many things our neighborhood has to offer, which I haven’t seen in other places. So, I thought I’d give you a little tour. No matter where you are, there are always new things to discover and appreciate.
There is a trash bag dispenser AND a trash can across the street from our house! Every neighborhood should have one.
Every neighborhood has a cluster of trees. You can go through them and pretend you’re in a forest.
Keep walking and you’ll come across a gazebo. Step inside and read a book (when it’s not 1000 degrees outside). Your dog will be preoccupied chasing Geckos!
Walk just a bit further and you’ll get a lake view. Just don’t feed those alligators! I don’t take Gant on this deck, just in case…
Sit on the Adirondack chairs and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Lily pads everywhere.
And geckos scurrying away as you walk by. Gant has caught a few.
Then head home for a special treat. Because there’s always an occasion for one!
