I am looking for a vining plant that does well in the full Florida Sun, preferrably a bloomer, but definitely NOT bouganvilla. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Akebia quinata, also called Five-leaf Akebia or Chocolate Vine is evergreen and grows in full sun. It flowers in the spring; Antigonon leptopus (Coral Vine) is also evergreen, grows in full sun and flowers in summer/fall; Clerodendrum x speciosum
(Java Glory Vine) produces red flowers from spring through fall. It is evergreen; Clytostoma callistegioides (Painted Trumpet) develops purple flowers in the spring and is evergreen; Cryptostegia grandiflora (Palay Rubber Vine) has lavender flowers spring through fall and is evergreen; Passiflora caerulea (Blue Passion Flower) has lavender flowers all summer long; Passiflora coccinea (Red Passion Flower) also flowers all summer long - both are evergreen. Hope these suggestions are helpful.
