I guessed that this place was pretty close to the J. Percy Priest Reservoir and after I got done looking the place over I asked the rental agent how far it was to the lake. He told me it was less than five minutes, although he was not sure how far it was to the nearest place you could launch a boat. I had been looking for apartments for rent in Antioch TN, and this was a pretty big deal to me. Of course the lake is really big and so there are a whole lot of places that are within easy driving distance of the shores. I was sort of thinking about finding a place where I could walk down to the shore, in a part of the lake where the bass are prevalent. Of course I like to fish at night with a crank bait.
That is the most fun that you can have fishing, it is not boring like a lot of types of fishing where you are just sitting and waiting. You are actively trying to attract the fish and when they hit something on the top of the water that is a real thrill. Of course you want to take a cooler with a cold six pack of beer along. That is why I would like to find a place that is within walking distance of the lake. Obviously you do not want to drinking and driving every night. That just is not a good idea and I have not gotten behind the wheel after drinking for a very long time. I used to do it way too much when I was a much younger man, but it was really stupid then and it would be a lot more stupid now that I know better.
The warm Florid weather definitely does an old body good, and I know that I am more than ready to escape the cold winters of Michigan, and trade them in for the relatively constant temperatures in Florida. I have just retired, and I am excited to have the chance to move to Florida now. So I need to start looking at prices and info on luxury apartments in Tampa FL to see if I can find one that suits my tastes.
I have spent a considerable amount of time in Florida over the years. I have vacationed with my family here for decades, and I have also had to come to Florida on business dozens of times. So, it is that experience with the weather in state of Florida, that led me to decide years ago, that whenever I finally retired, I would move to Florida and enjoy the warm weather. Often times, it will be 80 degrees and humid in the middle of winter here in Florida. That is just fantastic, because where I am from, sometimes it will hit -30 or -40 with the wind chill in the depths of winter.
I imagine that a lot of people who are from Florida can not even phathom how cold that is. It is really hard to describe it to someone who has never experienced it before. I know that I won’t miss it. I won’t miss those Michigan winters at all. I would like to try to find an apartment within the next month or two, so I can actually move to Florida and start getting settled in. I am kind of picky when it comes to where I live, so it might take me a good month to actually come to a decision on the right apartment for me.
