One of the best things about living in Central Florida is the wildlife. Some days that is the best thing. 😉
For me, any day I connect with Nature is a perfect one. The most rewarding moments are the unexpected ones, those times when a projected idea falls short, leading to a moment of pure brilliance!
We took a drive to get my haircut; and, as always, my journeys must be combined with some kind of fun. We tried to make a detour to the Big Tree park to visit some very old tree friends but road construction made that impossible; so we made our way slowly towards my hair appointment while taking small detours to check out the local nature hangouts. There is a lot of water in Florida and lots of man made lakes. On our last stop, with only 30 minutes to spare, we hit the jackpot! There, swimming, flitting, flying and feeding on the lake were not one, not two, but half a dozen of our favorite birds! They were most happy to pose for me too. I hope you enjoy the photos and that your weekend has been filled with nice surprises.
Great Blue Heron
Even more lovely in flight.
The ancient and wise looking Wood Stork.
This little guy is a bonus, not as commonly seen. I love the Tri Colored Heron.
After my new do, we headed to find food and drink on the recommendation of my stylist. He really knows the local food and didn’t steer us wrong.
The craft beer selection was amazing as well, with dozens to choose from.
Color me happy! Now, I can face a new week.
