A Visit to Bok Tower Gardens

Joan and I had the pleasure of visiting Bok Tower Gardens a couple of weeks ago and had a great time. And I did get a slew of photos. I’ll be able to get a handful of them into this posting. The gardens at… Continue Reading “A Visit to Bok Tower Gardens”

Today is National Bird Day

It surely is and so I’m offering my favorite bird photo of the last ten years. I took the banner photo back in 2016 at Trimble Park in Orange County, Florida. It was a keeper and I’ve featured it before. A long time ago,… Continue Reading “Today is National Bird Day”

We Could Bearly Stand It!

Joan and I have annual passes for the Brevard Zoo. We really like being supporters and go when we can. We never fail to stop by and see their resident Black Bear, Cheyenne. An orphaned cub, she was adopted at about four months as… Continue Reading “We Could Bearly Stand It!”

Deer and Springs at Kelly Park

We had occasion to camp at Kelly Park in Orange County (Florida) not very long ago and had a terrific time. We were stunned at how tame the deer were. They came around–and in considerable numbers–every evening and night. Having said that, I must… Continue Reading “Deer and Springs at Kelly Park”

Time to go visit your Mother

Joan and I spent two lovely days at Trimble Park back in January. It’s one of our favorite camping spots in Central Florida.

Something tells me…

…it’s all happening at the zoo! And our visit last week confirmed how true that is. Had a chance to visit The Brevard Zoo again just a few days ago. This fine Central Florida zoo–like most in the country–closed back in March. It reopened… Continue Reading “Something tells me…”

National Camera Day

Photography is a very big deal to me and today is a day I wanted to get a photo or two up on the blog. It’s true that there’s not a lot left of this auspicious day, but here we go… We did have… Continue Reading “National Camera Day”

Fave Fotos: A Florida Beach in May

Sometimes I take a photo I like so well that it can be good material for a post all by itself. The banner photo is one of those. It’s from a trip we made about two weeks ago. It was just when beaches became… Continue Reading “Fave Fotos: A Florida Beach in May”

Quick Trip Back to the Beach

It had been about three months since I had made a beach visit. And that’s way too long. Because it’s been difficult — as well as risky, of course — to get to the shore, I’ve been eager to get some sand in my… Continue Reading “Quick Trip Back to the Beach”

Serenity is a Full Moon

Like all of you, I’ve been a bit stressed in the last month or so. And I was really looking for something that would help me banish the stress-monster for a moment or two. About 30 minutes ago, I noticed that a beautiful full… Continue Reading “Serenity is a Full Moon”
