What A Beautiful Day

These pictures are in chronological order, backwards. You would think I would remember to load them backwards so they come out forwards, lol. Remember last month I told you if you frequent state parks a lot you can be a volunteer photographer? It is easy just go to to sign up. Last month I uploaded two of the pond pictures we took and now my pictures are on the home page of the Cedar Key Nature Refuge page. Cool!

Yesterday, was the most beautiful day to be outside. It was crystal clear blue skies, a nice breeze, and about eighty degrees. We started our day by going to the nature refuge to sweep leaves and debris off of the boardwalk and rest area on the River Trail. Since it has been chilly at night there where no reptiles to be seen. Not enough sun on the trail for them to find a spot to get warm I guess. Tonight it is going to be 34 and tomorrow 29 at night, brr. We did see rooted up areas that wild pigs do, but no pigs. Thank goodness because they are aggressive and mean. The bottom set of pictures are from the River Trail and the Suwannee River which is at the end of the trail. Ranger Pam will be doing a photography class that is free, and we are looking forward to that.

Then we headed to Cedar Key for a picnic lunch, and play time. Cedar Key is a small fishing and resort type town on the Gulf of Mexico. If you look at the one picture, and make it bigger, you will see a factory looking thing out in the water. That is actually the nuclear power plant which is actually in Crystal River about fifty miles away. That is how clear the sky was. I have been to Cedar Key several times and never seen it before. DJ took most of the pics, with myself shooting just a couple. He is really getting to know this camera very well. Even with its limitations he is doing quite well with his photography. Some of the birds pictured are Seagulls, and some are Sandpipers.

Today we are back to regular school business. Tomorrow is Veteran's Day and there is no school. Well not for the kids. I get to catch up on grading papers. I hope everyone is having a beautiful week so far.

Beautiful photos! It's always great to get out and enjoy the weather when you can. I especially love the bridge shot.
