Huh? Oh, Not Much.

We're back in Wauchula, Florida, this week. And we will be in Clermont again in the next week or so. So, to the question of what I've done; I suppose the best answer is to say we're dancing on the face of Florida. Now I've been told that once we head out I'll see a blue moon before I'm bored again (supposing of course I'm wearing blue tainted lenses). Here, the closest thing to fun is watching the orange trucks pass full one way and empty the other in a nearly non-stop fashion. I hope the rest of America likes oranges.

If things weren't so wet I'd be much happier to trek the wetlands of Florida. We've had a drought the past 8 years or so, so I'm not use to them living up to their name; and I wouldn't care if it were not for the fact I recently received new shoes which now look to be a few years old. On the bright side I'm getting to see more wildlife on this side of the state. There is an Osprey that is a supposed regular in the forest hear that I only had the chance to see once while here. I did however get the opportunity to get very close to a Red Shouldered Hawk and grab some pictures.

This isn't the closest picture, but its the clearest. I walked away and noticed the lens of my camera was just awful. The way this thing acted it had to be protecting a nest; and before you say its to cold to lay eggs remember its Florida and spring for us started last year, quite warm here. I will try and go back tomorrow quite possible with a better camera to grab some more pictures. I'll keep ya'll updated (ya'll being my mom, who happens to be in the same room as me.)


  1. Thank you for updating me. I was all the way "upstairs" in my room by the time I read this. ;p

    Wonderful picture! Hoping I see him before we leave here too.

  2. No problem ma'am. And yea, I plan on running down there before Pickleball today. The lighting before noon would be optimal.
