Just Pictures

It’s foggy and overcast this morning. But I have a good enough signal to upload photos, so I’ll post some from yesterday.

I love the COE's safety signs.

The alligators were getting out of hand the last time we camped here. One man told us that when he brought his boat into this canal after dark, the red, glowing eyes of the alligatos along this bank looked like Christmas lights.

This is the area where the young alligator chased baby Sheba.  it used to have all kinds of vegetation in the water and on the banks.  I'm sure that's why they've mowed the bank and trimmed the aquatic plants back.

There are dug up areas along the road.  It's not bad enough to be feral hogs, so I think it's armadillos.  Here they were probably going for the young bull thistle's turnip tasting roots.

Gorgeous little flowers.

    I truly look forward to your posts and pictures even though I do not comment all the time. Snow is still melting up here outside Chicago so I really enjoy going camping with you both. Thank you again,

    • Bonnie, I love it when I hear from you. I hope my pictures remind you that spring is slowly creeping northward and will be at your place before too long. 🙂

    I see some of that bull thistle and those little purple flowers here at Little Talbot Island, north of Jacksonville. We are on our homeward journey, now, too. Next week a stop in Savannah at Skidaway Island SP to meet up with hubby Paul’s cousin and his wife for a few fun days. Then a little time at Hunting Island and Huntington Beach and we will be seriously homeward bound. It will be good to get home and see everyone and our adventure is only over until next November. There have been lots of good times and a few challenging ones in our almost four months in FL. Next year we have plans to stay put in the Venice area for four months, then wend our way through the Forgotten Coast and along the gulf into New Mexico and Arizona. We haven’t yet decided whether we’ll make a year of it and continue on through CA and the Northwest. When we get home this spring, we’ll look at all the options and see what we can afford. My feeling is if we’re going to full time for a year, next year should be it. After all, we’re not getting younger 😜

    I am glad your winter turned out to be so good. It’s always a learning experience, isn’t it? I feel that I know so much more about myself and about my relationship with Paul than I ever did before. We are never too old to grow and learn.
