A while back, I posted the Take A Mental Vacation gallery, but it’s about time to take another one. Now that winter has arrived in full force (at least here on the East Coast), it’s important to maintain a “sunny” disposition until spring finally arrives. Currently, I’m creating this gallery from gorgeous Sanibel Island in Florida – a much needed break from the cold, though never a break from work! – but not everyone is this fortunate.

Keep your SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder – when the cold weather makes you, well, sad) at bay with these two galleries chock full of tropical/summery places to let your minds wander to. Since the last gallery focused mostly on tropical destinations, I figured for this one, I’d keep it in the states! (Mostly. I included Puerto Rico and Mexico because I could.) Send us a postcard from your mental destination!
