Things up in the trees along the boardwalk at Lettuce Lake Park.
You can usually find several night herons in the swamp.
The view from the tower above, taken with my phone. It always makes me feel like I’m somewhere else other than close to downtown Tampa when I’m standing up here.
Looking into the swamp from the boardwalk. There’s gators hiding in there somewhere.
At the end of the boardwalk, the HIllsborough river floats by and turns the corner.
Under the trees along the trail, it was quiet early in the morning. I had the trail all to myself
Heading out of St. Petersburg on the Cross Bay Ferry to Tampa.
The Sunshine Skyway Bridge looked like a mirage from the middle of the bay.
A beautiful sunny day on the water in late November.
Coming back from Tampa in the late afternoon.
Color on the trail.
Crawling critters including that tiny alligator right on the trail.
Small birds along the trail. A green heron, a house wren making a face at me and then chirping and a blue headed vireo.
Having a snack.
A perfect start to a day at Circle B Bar Reserve.

Heading home after work, I stopped at an office parking deck after I got over the bridge into Tampa. Storms were moving in over the area. I could see it raining on one side of the bridge and sunny on the other side. Typical Florida weather.
Driving into my neighborhood, it had just stopped raining and the sun was peeking out.
A rainbow in front of my house.
Later that week, we had other storms coming across our neighborhood. I was able to catch the lightning in the backyard with my phone.
Flowers at the Temple Square Garden in Salt Lake City.
It was a cold sunny morning when we walked around the Temple Square in downtown Salt Lake City.
The Joseph Smith Memorial Building was ready for Halloween when we were there in early October.
More from our vacation in Utah this past fall.
In the trees. Grackles, great egret, black and white warblers and northern parulas.
On the ground, an ibis was eating a snack.
A beautiful morning at Lettuce Lake park.
