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.
