Wow! You are a great photographer. What beautiful pictures. Everything looks so green and lush. The horses were so pretty.
Here in my part of Southern California it seems hot and dry. The earthquakes are really upsetting me. We had one Saturday night, and one again last night. It's enough to make another state sound pretty good about now.

How gorgeous, and I love your photographs of those deer and horses. You are showing a part of Florida that I have never seen.

I have to share a funny story. I baked a pretty coconut layer cake, and it looked so lovely for the table. One by one my family returned, and before I could get a photo the cake was almost gone. I wanted to say something to them, but they were all enjoying it so much, I let it go. It would have looked perfect for the photos though. tee hee

What a beautiful place! That's another one I'm going to have to put on my list of places to visit when we're down there next year. Thanks for taking us on all of these tours! Florida has so much more than beaches to offer...I think most people don't realize that.

XOXO,

Cyndi
