Enough Already

I’m sure I’m not the only one who gets cabin fever about this time each year. Other years we have broken the monotony by taking a trip or doing something intended to break up the depressing lack of light and never ending cold.

This year travel hasn’t really interested us so I have been looking back at some prior Winter getaways for inspiration.

Before we went RV’ing we took a January trip to Florida, particularly the Everglades and we travelled through Tampa on the way down.

The Sunshine Skyway Bridge

We made a point of viewing as many birds as we could. Long lenses help a lot. And… we made sure to stop off at the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge on our way.

Prior to this visit I was pretty much unaware of the interesting Anhinga. These diving birds spend a great deal of time drying out their feathers after fishing!

Shorebirds of every variety intrigue me, as you can tell.

It’s funny how just looking at critters can make me feel warmer even if the temp outside is a frigid 3º F.

Spring can come anytime now.

On one of my Paris trips I did a whole gallery of people taking pictures. I guess Peggy got the bug from me, because on this trip when I was shooting so was she…..


One thought on “Enough Already

  1. That bridge is fascinating, but like you, critters can warm my heart in a … well, in a heartbeat. Love the pics. Keep warm, and remember that officially spring starts in just one more month! It has been a strange winter here … 0° one day, near 60° the next. I am ready for longer, warmer days, though.
