Swamps, Birthdays and Grandkids
I'm nearing the end of Florida photos, promise. :0) I loved spying alligators in so many places!
And bromeliads! Everywhere! A few were even in bloom.
There's probably a gator hiding in there somewhere, but I didn't venture closer to find out.
Bromeliads were hiding there too though.
Now, each time I share one of these close up gator photos you guys get nervous. I assure you that I was not in any danger. In fact, this photo was taken from the safety of the car. I have a 400mm lens I use a lot, so I could get close up photos of these dangerous creatures without being too close.
And it was here, with water on each side, birds above and below, gators to the left and bromeliads to the right, that we paused long enough to eat my birthday cupcakes. Thanx again Chris for being so thoughtful!
Would you want to celebrate anywhere else?
Last Friday we celebrated another birthday - our youngest turned 18 and we had the family over for a cookout. Addy, Velcro baby, stuck close to mama.
But the precious lil man, my beloved Twister, stuck to me. As his parents gathered things up to take the kiddos home, Tristan looked at me and said, "I bein' good", I agreed that he was, so he followed with, "I 'tay here". You bet your boots he stayed, lol.
