I gotta say, life is tough down here in South Florida..what with 80 degree sunny days, and beautiful views…Dennis just might have to drag me outta here kicking and screaming…hanging on to the Palm Trees with my bare hands. As they say, one picture is worth 1000 words, and this will be most of my blog…photos…
Left, a Limpkin….(got me a bird book)…and on the right..Little Blue Heron… (yep, gonna Ace this test!)
Left, Great Blue Heron (didn’t even use my book here)…and right, is the Tri-Colored Heron..SCORE!!! (If I so much as get ONE wrong, rest assured the Birdlady of Blogland will be letting me know!)
Above is a Red Bellied Woodpecker..and right…right….right..duh…OK, OK..I COULDN’T FIND THIS ONE!!
It seems everyday we spot an alligator cruising the river…and we also see lots of jet skiers…Let’s see, put alligators and jet skiers together on the river and what to you get?…As far as I’m concerned..and I AM concerned, somebody (or someTHING) could be lunch!! MacGyver tells me to relax, settle down. He says that the peeps down here are use to sharing the water with critters…I think where he is wrong here is when he uses the word “share”.. I don’t play well with reptiles and serpents, and I certainly do NOT share..although I do have a one of Steve Erwin’s “Crocodile Hunter”caps. Makes me feel brave when I wear it , but in reality I am a big wet mess when I see one. Obviously I need to quit worrying..yeah, right.
A few more pictures I want to share…
Above left is the road we walk that leads to our campground..When we walk to the end we get to this sign above…This Riverwind Cove is a horse farm of sorts…and they have some beautiful ones..
These, I am sure, are draft horses like the Budweiser horses…and either they were playing “hide and seek” or I was just too scary to look at. In actuality, I was waaaay over on the road when I took this photo…I would love to have gotten close, but they were protected by an “electric fence”…Sure glad they let me know before I propped my arms up ON it to get this photo..YIKES!
We sit outside most all day, everyday..armed with binoculars, camera phone, and good camera…There is always something to see here…
…Sometimes it’s just MacGyver offering help to our neighbor changing his brakes…That MacGyver just HAS to offer!
…And sometimes the view is just too doggone gorgeous for words…So I will leave you at this point..speechless!
