One day last week we did take a drive to visit the Blue Springs State Park north of Orlando. The West Indian manatee is an endangered species and hundreds of them return to this park on the St. John’s River during the colder winter months where there are several warm water springs. Phil’s good eyes spotted two of them but they were so far away, the camera could not get a picture. I did get to see one raise its head and take a breath but Phil missed it.

Phil came home the other day with a new patio table, four chairs and an umbrella. One of our neighbors had it out on their driveway for sale because they never used it and we decided we could use it while we’re here and resell it when we leave. Sounds like a win-win situation to me and we love having a place to eat outside. We had our friends Margie and Roger over the other night to initiate the table and Phil grilled some lovely chicken breasts for dinner. It was a great evening with good friends and good food!
We have also set out our bird feeding station and the hummingbird feeders but so far, we have not seen any birds except the big Sandhill Cranes that hang out around here. Maybe we should have taken a hint from the fact that there are no bird feeders evident in this park, anywhere. Maybe there are no birds in this area of Florida … naahh, that can’t be true. We will just wait and see.
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time,
