February In Florida

This was a stroke of luck.  I met an old friend for lunch and found out she was spending February and March in Florida. So I did the natural thing and invited myself to join her.

A lot of the brown pelicans like to hang out with the people fishing for an easy lunch.  This is on the pier, with beach condo’s in the background.

The wonderful assortment of beach umbrella’s make the color on the beach match the  buildings on the shore, a mixture of pastel and bright colors.

Mural on the wall at the manatee park.  This is a great area to see the manatee in their natural environment and they are safe, people can only get to a certain area and not near enough to the water to cause any harm to the animals.

Lots of gecko’s everywhere.

The manatee park has an area for plants that attract butterflies.  Not many on the day we visited because of the wind, it was a little to strong for them but nice for us.

Of course in my world all things lead to quilts.  I found a couple of samples of beach umbrella quilts to add to my wish list.

We have 2 new states added to our list and two very successful trips. I am not sure what state we will visit next, but I can hardly wait.

      1. No, I went with the kids only for a couple of days. I have a friend who was down there for a month so we took advantage of a free place to stay. Thanks for the kind words about my blog, coming from you that is high praise. I am amazed at all you are accomplishing in your universe and am delighted to have you as a part of my life as well.
        Who knows maybe sometime over the summer we may fly out to visit you. Hope to see you soon. Kathy

      2. I was in college for the 4th time in my mid to late 40’s and that was the best time. The other students who were in my age group and professors who were my equals in age made it a good experience for me. I only hope yours is as well. Once I can figure out what I want to do when I grow up and where that will be, I hope to at least go back and take a couple of classes. I think learning something new keeps us young and healthy. I also took a page from your book and will be doing the color challenge with you. ❤

      3. I love the color challenge You will love it…it keeps me busy but it give me the creativity I need to stay young – I love college and I agree with you that it keeps me young because I am learning something new. My dream is to go to law school.
