Florida Trip with Pictures

I just wanted to share some pictures from my short trip to Florida (West Palm Beach). It was my first time there and my goals were to see some alligators and lizards. Of course I also wanted to get some sunning and barefooting in. The weather was gorgeous, and I got a couple barefoot walks in with no one giving me even a second glance. :)

I also want to do a shout out to the Old Key Lime House. Fun restaurant with great food and an awesome view! We even got to see a pod of dolphins ... too bad I didn't have my camera with me then.

Onto the pictures I did get ...

Anole lizard


Alligator (little one)

Mystery bird
(I'd love some help with this one)

Fig Tree

Hope you like these. I had fun taking them! I think the lizard picture is my favorite. But then I have a thing for lizards and that one was very patient posing there for me. :) I have definitely discovered a new respect for wildlife photographers!

And I would love to find out what that Mystery Bird is. I don't know a lot about birds so I don't feel bad asking for help.

I am pretty sure that the mystery bird is an Anhinga!

Wow that's a great pelican picture! I'm amazed you got up that close!

I'm amazed too actually! I got a couple from further away thinking it would take off but it kept letting me sneak forward. :)

Very nice pictures! Isn't Florida great?

I love your blog! Those pics are great and well-taken (nice lighting, too).

I really like that you handmake your items. I plan on doing that in the near future (homemade, all-natural products). It's rare these days to manufacture that way, but it's making a huge comeback and I'm very glad for that!

Good luck in all you do and create.

The bird is a cormorant In Australia we also call them shags. If you're feeling a bit left out of things around you we have a saying. "I'm not doing that again I felt like a shag on a rock"
