Wekiwa Springs State Park - January 2007


wssp-01-07-017.JPG

As our once-a-week hike in perpetuity, this week Jenny, Don, and I headed to the familiar stomping grounds of Wekiwa Springs State Park, four miles from my house. It was a fine January day, fine company, and fine scenery. Alas, I didn't get a helluva lot of sleep last night, so the usual proliferation of photographs is not forthcoming. There are enough, though, to put you to sleep (and me, too!).

Potts Preserve - January 2007

Friend Jenny and I grabbed the camping gear and headed to Potts Preserve, near Inverness, Florida, for a couple of days of camping, geocaching by sunlight and moonlight, hiking, Jeeping, and nature. It was a great way to ring in the new year.

Jenny and the Oyster Boat216 views(That's pronounced "orster" in these parts.) This old oyster boat is on display next to a sign that Jenny took exception to. Signs tend to piss Jenny off. Either they say too little or they say too much. At least three signs on this trip inspired baleful glances from Jenny.

RD carefully protected his electronic equipment118 viewsA wise idea. I had scouted the spring run on Tuesday and my assessment was that the water was no higher than knee-deep. Oops. It was more like waist deep.
