Do you want to walk or take photos?

We see the most amazing sites here in Florida...

Do you have a good place to walk in your neighborhood?

 Walking is such great exercise!

Look at you in shorts. Don't rub it in. Those are great photos. We have a great blue heron in our pond!

Looks like a beautiful walk!

Oh my goodness, how incredibly beautiful. Florida is such a stark contrast from Michigan this time of year. I love the flowers and the great blue heron. We won't see pretty things like that here again until late next spring. :-)

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday, too. And thank you so much for swinging by and visiting my blog this morning.

Blessings,
Susan @ CluckleBees

I like to walk and take photos, you have such glorious weather which of course I am envious of. I love the photos of the plumbago one of my favourite flowers, which has now finished blooming for the year here in Italy.

What nice photos. The "colorful pinecone" is fascinating!

I agree about walking and exercise. My DH & I walk 2 miles in our neighborhood every day, unless we have icy walks or thunderstorms or blizzards. On those days it's the threadmill. It's also a great way to greet the neighbors. :)

I already showed about Lake Sumter Landings Wharf walk here in Lady Lake. I know you would both love it. Looking good.

I do. But I just don't get out and walk it enough. Gorgeous photos!

Gorgeous photos! The earth is going to rest here in New England.

happy day!

As usual, the photos are amazing.

I cannot walk much these days, but when I do, the scenery is not as beautiful as yours. I live across from a mall. So, my walks take me into bookstores, and card shops, and clothing stores. Ah, temptation!

I have to admit to being just a teensy bit envious of the warm weather down there! We're still having lots of rain, but it doesn't stop me from walking every day.

Your heron photo is amazingly beautiful ;)

Hello from a very misty Venice!
So jealous of your sunny and warm weather! And what about you wearing a summery outfit?! Now I'm the same colour of your t-shirt! :)
Have a lovely week!

Yes...i walk all the time....in fact, today I circled the city...for about an hour...just taking in the traffic and all of the fallen leaves on the sidewalk!

the colours were so pretty...and set to my iPod Nano...I felt like I was walking through a movie!

Your photos....in their 'unaltered' state....are always gorgeous..thanks for the Florida tour....I've never been there...but through your eyes I wanna come!

well done!

ciao bella

You do have amazing scenery and birds there in Florida. You are also blessed to be able to still go walking in shorts! I doubled up on a sweater and jacket this morning as I headed out the door. I also enjoyed your "mug-rug" post and seeing the delightful coasters you've made.
