Fall in Georgia…

I seem to have missed the peak fall colors in Georgia.  Just like I missed them in New England also.  It was a tease to see the hints of color, but nope, not the peak color.  But I really did have a wonderful summer, and a great trip to the car museum with the photography group.  And like the optimist I am there is always next year…

I kept seeing landscapes and city scenes in the rust on the cars.  Looked more amazing in person than the pictures turned out, but what the heck…

Cadillac sunset…

It took a long time to develop.  The sun was setting behind the trees, and I told my friends that the clouds would pick up the color, but even I was losing faith.  We were close to the highest point in the lower peninsula of MI so that may have been it.  But it tested our patience.  And then it rewarded us.10-20Cadillacsunset210-20Cadillacsunset510-20Cadillacsunset4cacillacsunset1

Sticking close to home…

Home.  On the nature coast of Florida.  Except I don’t think I actually live there any more.  I’m slightly over the line.  Don’t tell anybody though, because I think the nature coast sounds exotic.  Then again I’m in the vicinity of Bayonet Point, which has a certain ring to it also.  I scooted up the road just a bit, to Hudson Beach for the sunset.  I love the Florida sunrises and sunsets, especially when they are only a few miles up, or down, the road.  It’s nice to take off for parts unknown, but home is nice too.9-30Hudsonbeachriver9-30Hudsonbeachsign9-30Hudsonbeachsunset9-30Hudsonbeachsunset29-30Hudsonbeachsunsetcharter

See that bird at the top of the post in this picture.  You’ll be seeing more of him tomorrow.

Riverfront sunrise…

Sunrise is an hour later here in Florida, so getting out there for the big event is less of a challenge.  It was a good way to start the day, but it went downhill after that.  I washed the camper and was given my official parking spot for it here at the park.  But I had a heck of a time getting it hitched up to go park it.  I mean a HECK of a time.  I’d still be out there attempting to hitch it up if my uncle hadn’t come back from golfing and helped me.  It had to do with the driveway being on a slant, but still I should be able to do it myself.  Anyhow, parking spot #1, we finally got it parked and unhitched.   That’s when one of the landscape crew showed up and asked if that camper was going to be there full time.  I told him full time but off and on.  Then he said that he was surprised that they gave me a spot that turns into a swamp when we get a lot of rain.  You are a woman, he said, they probably shouldn’t put you where the snakes are.  No, they shouldn’t.  I plan on telling them what I think of parking spot #1 tomorrow.  I can hardly wait to hitch it up again to move it…10-2riversunrise10-2riversunrise210-2riversunrise310-2riversunrisebirdsAll these birds flew in and landed at the same time, it was quite a sight…

Anclote River Park…

I checked out the eagle nest today, but didn’t see any eagles.  And the osprey nest was empty too.  But I knew I could count on the pelicans to be hanging around the park where the fishermen return with their catch.  Just in case they get a tidbit.  This park is now on the way to my son’s house since he moved back to Florida a few months ago.  Actually he moved back and I left for my summer adventure a week later.  Timing is everything they say.  I went in search of family and now there is more family back here at home also.  The temperature was 96 degrees, but in the shade with the breeze it was lovely out.
