The Beauty and Serenity are still there

I read a lot of news each week. A lot. And a huge chunk of the news I consume is — as you might imagine — about Nature, outdoor fun and our environment. One story about our National Parks broke this week and I… Continue Reading “The Beauty and Serenity are still there”

Black Cat Boss

I don’t know this ebony cat’s name but I do know he’s the Top Cat at Gemini Springs Park. This not-so-well-known park is beautiful. You can find it in Volusia County, just inside the town limits of Debary. That’s about 20 minutes or so… Continue Reading “Black Cat Boss”

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”

Not Littering but Environmental Crime

I came across a story on Wednesday about a Florida man who had just been arrested for the crime of littering. Felony littering, that is. Our Department of Environmental Protection was on the case.

We Could Bearly Stand It!

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”

Today is National Beach Day

It is National Beach Day today and I’m heading out in a few hours to get in on the party! If you’re anywhere near the coast–any coast–I hope you’ll get some sand in your shoes today. That’s my plan exactly! The banner photo is… Continue Reading “Today is National Beach Day”

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”
