I’ve never explored this are of Florida before this week but I must say I woulda’ shoulda’ coulda. I guarantee that I will explore it while I’m in the region. I usually stick close to the coast as most of us do but this inland region ain’t so bad.

Couldn't stop watching this bird. It totally blended in with its surroundings.

Please come along with me as I explore more of this wonderful area of our country! I must keep moving to find some peace before returning home. It’s critical to my mental health. I miss Ava so terribly that this is the only way I know to keep sane.

Happy Trails!
