It was a bit cool and too windy for me to don a bathing suit and jump in the water.. But I did put my toes in and got a lovely wash from the tiny waves. They knew I was coming and treated me nice!!
A long walk to get there over the white sand.. but sooo worth the “exercise’.
Clearwater beach at Life Guard house #5..
I hope you notice the brown figure, under the water. That is a SMALL Manatee!!
I have tons of other photos, but to really get an idea of the size of these magnificent creatures, I chose this one. That is a park ranger fixing some sensor lines going down to the Spring to monitor temps and condition of this pool. Which stays at 72 degrees year round. That attracts the Manatee’s during the Winter Months when the ocean temperature fall below 50 degrees.
Truly an amazing creature… gentle, slow moving and curious.. AND MUCH BIGGER THAN YOU MIGHT THINK!!
Enjoying the sunshine, clear water and good food. DD#1 is gourmet Cooking and feeding me lots of great foods. The recipes are all on line. So all I have to do is google it. Isn’t technology wonderful..
today’s Special spot to see… Suwannee Valley !!
This is Sammy, eating in the washer/dryer room. He has the sweetest face, but you have to be quick with the camera to catch it. I’ll continue trying til I get one “head on”.
Shhh, He doesn’t know he is a cat. And is the pack leader here. Soft angora type fur and the bluest eyes!! A real ladies man.
That’s a turtle, on a log. I’m on DD#1′s computer and thus I can grab some of her wonderful snaps!!
Enjoying the sunshine and warm temps.. and feeling like I’ve thawed out for the first time in over a week. Went thrift store shopping today after having lunch at a combo antique/cafe Dade City,Fl. A side trip to a quilt store happened inbetween the lunch and thrift store. Wow, lots of eye candy today. But left my camera packed away.
Tomorrow we have a day planned for the OP house. DD keeps all her “toys” there and I can’t wait to browse thru it all. I promise to take my camera with me!!
Salem is all ready to go, too.. I’m half way packed and she decides this is the perfect place to settle in for a long nap.
It is 20 degrees outside and I can’t blame her for wanting to find a soft , warm spot for the day.. but WHY me..???? I know I give good scratches and she follows me everywhere,, but NOT to FLORIDA!!!
