We went to Florida for a week last week; and it helped to get me motivated to update the blog, which has been lying dormant for almost two months now. There's nothing like a little Florida sunshine to help overcome the winter blahs.
The primary reason for going on this trip was to attend a conference at Word of Life Conference Center in Hudson, Florida. Erwin Lutzer was the speaker last week, and we always enjoy hearing him. The conference schedule allowed plenty of time to enjoy the beaches, though. And we did.
On Monday, the 8th, we went to Fred Howard County Park. The tide was in, and water was covering the island beach spot where we had planned to seek shelter from the strong wind that was blowing that day. So we spent the afternoon on the mainland part of the park, tucked behind some shrubs growing along the shoreline.
|This sweet pooch was focused on his female human, who had wandered away.|
|I believe this little fellow smelled our trail mix. He became quite the little beggar.|
|As the tide began to recede, some of the shorebirds began to appear.|
Don't you love the green legs and feet of this Little Blue Heron?
The weather was cool during our week in Florida, but much warmer than it would have been at home. The sunshine is much more important to me than the temperature anyway. Sunshine just makes everything better. And we don't get much of it during the winter months where we live in Indiana.
So we just donned our sweatshirts and went to the beach at every opportunity. More photos to come.
I'll be around to visit your blogs as soon as I can.
