After 30 years living in a small town in Northern Ireland, I decided to take up the offer from my girlfriend to go and live in Coconut Grove, Miami.

The aim of this blog is to record my thoughts, feelings and observations on the perpetually warm, ever so friendly and affluent Coconut Grove.
Can I live with no seasons? No BBC? No period dramas? There’s only one way to find out…
