At the end of January I had he great privilege of going to Florida to visit one of my long time friends and my best friends, with her partner and their dog.
It was quite the fascinating time. I tried to write about it a while ago, but the computer decided not to let me, and so here we are nearly two months later.
This is the beach we visited where the huge waves were crashing into the remains of. It the steamship wharf above. It is on the island of Boca Grande which one reaches by causeway.
A glorious day as you can see. Most of the entire visit was filled with beautiful days, and interesting wildlife, as well as lots of stuff to do and see.
This hotel is one of the oldest in Florida... it is totally charming, with a golf course and a croquet course attached as well as sumptuous bedrooms, libraries, restaurants - you name it.
One of the many views along the golf course where my friends' winter home is situated in Placida, south of Sarasota.
More tomorrow in the next blog - this is just a teaser... birds and other wildlife tomorrow!
