We had a few cold days last week, but I only had to step out onto my porch for this pretty red sky. We're hoping for clear skies and warmer weather the next few days because we are leaving for our annual boat trip to Lake Okeechobee.
We did get outside to play even though we had a few cold (for us) days. It actually got down below freezing one night and was cooler here that day than it was in Oregon. It is unusual for our family there to have good weather bragging rights in the winter!
We had our boat club poker run, which I've blogged about before, and this time I got no pictures at all because we were all in parkas and mittens -- good thing it was a short boat ride. We know how lucky we are, so nobody here really complains about a few cold days. (Well, except probably the orange growers -- I hope everything came through the freeze OK.)
I'm taking a weekly Yoga class that meets in the tree tops. Almost. It's really held on the porch at Six Mile Cypress Visitor Center and the class is early -- before it opens.. There couldn't possibly be a more peaceful place for this relaxing class. (We lucked out on the good weather -- the class has only had to move inside once.)
Butterflies and native Spartina Grass. We were walking at Bailey Tract, Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge.
Cormorant and turtles -- Bailey Tract.
The water around here often looks tea-colored because of natural tannin from cypress trees, but the way the sun was shining on it the day we were at Bailey Tract, it looked like burnished copper.
We'll have the IPAD with us on the trip to Lake O, so I'm hoping to be able to link to these lovely memes as appropriate. Thank you to all of the hosts and to all who visit. I'll catch up with you as soon as I can.
