Welcome to my "Florida" blog

Being a third generation Florida native, I'm completely enamored with the diverse beauty of this gorgeous peninsula. For most of the year the weather is divine which makes exploring its unlimited nooks and crannies fun and easy.

Wherever I go I appreciate nature and the world around me. Come along with me as I share the places I visit and perhaps a few other amusements I find interesting along the way.

Feeling Beachy


























November is a perfect time to be at the Gulf Beaches. I had the chance to go a few times last month. I need to get there again before Christmas... I'm feeling the need. Time to get my toes in the sand and breathe in the salty air.

Kudos to you for coaxing the shy little fellow out of his shell.

hey, we are gonna have a few warm days before our 'winter' sets in ~ lets head for the shore again soon. a good fish lunch, our feet in the warm sand, forgetting all we left behind that we should get done, and we will return as good as new. i'm game for that!

Susan,
I saw that shell moving and had to sit patiently waiting for him to decide to get up and take a walk. They ARE very shy.

FC,
Taken late in the day the light is my favorite angle and hue. Thank you for the comment.

rissalee,
You make me smile. You can join me and Geeg on our next get away.

Marmee,
And I love your fireside, too. Would sit there with you any day... don't worry... you and I will get to the beach as soon as you come down again!

Geeg,
What about today? Oh yeah, its Christmas shopping and then the grand kiddos... and what about tomorrow... oh yeah, it's another long list of to-do's and the grand kiddos overnight. Okay, I give you mother rights to make me do it... soon... come get me and make me do it. :-)

Loved this post. As a child, I lived on Okinawa where every child had a little terrarium with a water spot in it and kept hermit crabs as pets. We would hold hermit crab races...that could sometimes take hours. LOL

Great shots.
