Natural Scenes from Florida

When it’s too warm to hike, we can get in the car and drive!

And it was a beautiful day over the weekend to head to a feeder creek to the Gulf Coast.

I thought you might enjoy seeing some natural beauty.

And how nice to have a bench to sit and watch the boats come in.

Looks like a fun day to be on the water!

We brought an afternoon snack with us.

Time to sit and relax.

What a nice thought - warm days. The photos are lovely and I'd like to be sitting right there watching the boats. We are in the middle of a huge rainstorm - high of 52 and snow down to 1,000 feet on the mountains (we might get a flurry or two at our house). Not the weekend weather we hoped for - but we'll find something fun to do anyway, even if we have to stay indoors.

That would be most enjoyable Diane. I hope you had a nice time watching the boats in the sunshine. Have a lovely weekend. xx Pam

Diane said...

Hello, I just popped over from Jane at Maple Syrup Mob to have a look at your blog. I love your photographs, I envy your life in Florida, we've been to Orlando a few times to see the Mouse with our grandchildren, we live in Scotland which is beautiful but not warm or as sunny as Florida or indeed North Carolina I'm sure! Nice to meet you, I've bookmarked your blog and will look forward to reading more. :)

You have had some high temps lately. Beautiful pictures. I went to a doll auction yesterday. I brought home a bunch. It was the end of the two day event. Now I got to find homes for them. I will post them soon.

We had a surprise this morning in the shape of a cold and rainy day. No walking here, so I'm enjoying your sunshine instead.

What a lovely spot. I used to go to a place called Pine Island on the gulf where I rented a house and also several other places where I went on business trips in Florida on the gulf. So pretty and boy did I love(still do) those stone crabs when they were in season. Some friends of mine would get them right off the boat when they came in. I even remember Tampa when it wasn't a big city! Yes, I'm old! LOL!
Did you have to watch for alligators so close to the water there?

Marlene Plasencia said...

Hi Diane, what a beautiful spot you found. Your pictures are simply beautiful. I love Florida too, but we have to get ready for the hot weather sure to come, lol.
Sending blessings,
Marlene

There is nothing more peaceful than sitting beside the water. That looks like a lovely place to visit.

Beautiful. Diane, I finally got my computer up and running and all my blogs transferred. I have missed your travels and all your finds. I will not be catching up.
Good to be back in the blogging world.

Hi Lavender Dreamer! It is good to visit! I've been working on some writing projects and not jumping on the blogging sites I love lately! We just had a beautiful day... yes it is getting warmer here in the wilds of WI! Finally! I'm looking forward to those too hot days! :)

Hi Diane, It's wonderful to "find" you again. I deleted my old blog and have been slowly finding my old buddies. You live in such a pretty area. It would be wonderful to sit on that bench and enjoy the beauty. Hope you have a great day. Signing up to follow along now.
