would be right next to the tail of an alligator, don't you think?
These are from a trip to Florida January 2014. We visited the Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park. There were two ways to get to it from the main entrance, a boat or a tram ride. We took the boat and this is a sight that we were greeted with not five minutes into the ride. Turtles sharing a log with an alligator.
Since the busy pace of the holidays we have settled into a slower one. Between colds and company I haven't done a lot of photo taking, and it's snowing today!
Sounds like it will be our first significant one of 2020. I hadn't looked at the long range weather forecast and a friend called up this morning and said it was snowing where she was. She lives out towards the mountains about an hour from here. No sign of it as I looked out the window.
I got busy with a few chores and when hubs came home he said that it was snowing. I looked outside and by this time there were big fluffy flakes coming down. (I wish we could send it over to our friends in Australia, as I am still thinking about you all out that way). Will it stick? I won't have a clue until I look at our local weather and I want to finish this beforehand.
The only sign of wildlife outside is a squirrel eating the birdseed I put out there. He is welcome as all the birds have battened down the hatches. Yesterday I saw a squirrel running across the grass with a mouthful of dead leaves. We have two squirrel nests up in our tree and no doubt they are being insulated for the snowy weather. A sign I should pay more attention to and I will from now on, that and looking at the long range weather forecast.
All this being said I am a homebody and have no intention of going anywhere, at least for today. I am convinced that if you put me in a small log cabin on the top of a snow-covered mountain in the middle of nowhere I would be happy. It is a family joke that we have bandied around for years, and hubs always adds yes, as long as they've got electricity and wi-fi! Maybe! But that's what candlelight, good old-fashioned books and a log fire is all about isn't it? What say you? I can dream can't I?
And as I get back on track and case in point, I have not been outside to take any photos, so to amuse myself I looked at old vacation photos from way back. I found these of the alligator and turtles, shared before but maybe it's been so long that you don't remember, or won't mind seeing again.
