An Interesting Day For Photos

March 6, 2012

Good morning.  It's a lovely sunny morning here in Florida.  Yesterday turned out quite nice, and today is supposed to be nice too.   This is good because today we will be driving north to visit with my son.  At the moment, Audrey is programming the GPS, and writing down directions from Map Quest for just in case. 

With all the air conditioning on everywhere, I have managed to pick me up quite a nice cold.  Just what I need right now!  I don't feel like driving all over the place today, but there's only three more days left to play so today it will be.

Yesterday, we checked out a few of the tourist places here, one in particular called Old Town.  It's a lovely little area that is decorated to take you back to the 50's, 60's and 70's.  Lot's of memorabilia and little shops to browse.

In the afternoon, we just drove around looking for places where there might be birds.  At one point, Audrey spotted something that looked like a nest on top of a billboard sign.  We drove as close as we could to wear the sign was, and took whatever photos we could get.  The sun was in our eyes, and the billboard nest was quite a ways up, but we managed to get a few photos.  It was an Osprey nest and it was occupied by a pair of ospreys.  We have no idea of whether or not there were any eggs.

Not too far from here, we found a little pond with a few Ibis, but sad to say none of my photos came out very good.   We did get a lot of beautiful flower photos though.  I'll save them for another day.

Now I think it's time to mosey on in to the shower and run a bit of soap and water over me.  We will need to be leaving soon as it will take us a couple of hours to get where we are going.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

What fun to see them flying into the nest. You are very observant and diligent in your photography.

Sorry to hear about the cold! (But you are in the land of orange juice!!)

The osprey pictures are great! The lighting makes them very dramatic.

Be back to visit in the morning again tomorrow!! Enjoy the rest of the trip and drink OJ!

Hugs, Nani

Sorry for the cold, airconditioning is a nice thing, but very bad for the health. Take a lot of sun, and it may pass soon.
Have a nice visit at your son's and have some more great days!
