A couple of Ibis guard the waters from a Boardwalk railing (fence?). The sign (below right) might lead you to expect to be climbing a steep mountain soon.
But we are used to flat-land Florida by now and the sign couldn't fool us. Even at our advanced ages, we managed to hike up this "elevation" without even using the rail (and without even breathing hard). We did 'perspire' a little, but that was because of the heat, not the exertion. Seriously, note the handrail on the left of the bottom picture -- I didn't notice any elevation gain then and I don't see it here! It's all relative I guess - we are from the Pacific Northwest where a change in elevation usually means more than "climbing" a few steps higher than sea level.
Two Sandhill Cranes browse the fence-line near a boardwalk at Wellington.
We watched from poolside as the Christmas full moon rose. These aren't the best moon shots I've ever taken -- the tiki lights at the Palm Beach hotel pool bar and the city lights in the distance were a little distracting. But it was a beautiful evening! Sometimes I still have to pinch myself to believe that it is the end of December and we can actually sit outside late into the evening enjoying dinner al fresco.
Thank you to all of the hosts for providing these wonderful sharing opportunities.
