We originally planned on spending the month of December in Florida. Well it’s now February and we’re still here! We are moving at a snail’s pace, and enjoying every minute of it.
Our exploration of Florida started in Daytona, then came Cape Canaveral and the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge where most of my bird photos were taken. Then we continued down the east coast to Everglades National Park and finally to the Keys where we spent a week at Christmas. (I’m still processing photos from the Everglades, but the Keys are coming up on the blog soon.)
After that we started to move along the gulf coast, which was a little hard psychologically, believe it or not. We went from the west coast of Canada as far east as we could go to Newfoundland and then as far south as we could go to the Florida Keys. Now we’re heading west – back in the direction of home.
We’re still a long way from home, but as long as we keep moving at a snail’s pace everything should be fine. The trip is far from over.
