Ten Things We LOVE About Florida June 2, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Animals, Exercise & Fitness, Gratitude, Nature.

1.  Anna Maria Island . . . An Island in the Sun

2.  Florida Is For The Birds ~ Spoonbills, Egrets, Great Blue Herons, Pelicans, Sandhill Cranes, Wood Storks, Ibis, Anhingas, Cormorants, and Skimmers

3.  Gorgeous Beaches with white sand, swaying palms,  and turquoise water perfect for . . . A Walk in the Waves or being Bag Ladies on the Beach.

4.  Sea Turtles, Dolphins, and Manatees ~ gentle giants

5. The Summer Finding revealed itself in the dead of Winter

6.   State Parks abound . . . Explore the Great Outdoors

7.  Brave New Adventures ~ like kayaking!

8.  Royal Palms, Coconut Palms, Pineapple Palms, Gumbo Limbos, Banyan Trees, Citrus Groves, and . . . Lemon Trees

9.  Flying Fish and Leaping Lizards plus Amusing Otter Antics

10.  Biking ~ Pedal Power and Let’s Go Fly . . . A Bike!

Florida . . . what’s not to love?   

Well, I can think of two things off the top of my head:

* S-N-A-K-E-S . . . which give me The Heebie Jeebies

* And non-native, invasive snakes which make me mad ~ Big Oil, Big Lies:  Thanks, BP! 

No rules.  Just write!

Doesn’t Florida also own a wealth of Art Deco architecture?
Lucky you.

Miami, Ft. Myers, Clearwater Beach, and other places I’ve not yet discovered have some awesome Art Deco hotels and buildings that have been preserved by the salt air. ; )
