Whenever I post photos of nature, this is one of the first questions that pops up. I also get, “I want to go where you go,” “Where is this?” “Can you take me with you?” Who knows how genuine these queries and comments are – haven’t we all supported our friends’ posts in similar ways? … More Where Do You Go?
Wandering Wednesday: Cedar Key, Florida. I wish I could tell you how long it took to get to certain places. From my house on the east side of Orlando it took us about 7 hours to get to Cedar Key. I believe it is probably less than a 3 hour drive. Such is the life … More Subtraction = Abundance
Meandering Monday Exploring my town on foot always helps me feel grounded, established where I live. Like I know the place.

It was a beautiful sunny day. One of the surprise Spring Florida days that actually felt like spring. Low humidity, cool breezes, blue skies and white puffy clouds. It was a great day to be outside. I ran into these four gents taking the waters. It was not necessary for them to immerse completely in … More Smiling Birds Spa Days
