Since moving back to Georgia we have been unable to go down to Florida and visit family. Well this christmas the stars aligned and it was a done deal. We got up bright and early christmas morning, opened up presents, had us a good breakfast and headed down to sunny Florida.
It was very hard to get a good picture of the tarpin because of those dang Pelicans. The kids had a great time feeding the tarpin crabs and fish. Those tarpin are huge, I know it is hard to tell but the one at the top of the page is around 4 to 5 ft. long.
In this picture you can both the Atlantic on the left and the Gulf of Mexico on the right. The water is so green and pretty.
This is the whole reason I had to go to the Keys in the first place. I just love this windchime. It isn't too loud and it is so pretty. They had them in oranges and blues. I just think they are too cool. We also took time out to go to the Metro Zoo. It has taken a bit of time for them to get the Zoo back up to par since Hurricane Andrew totally demolished it back in 1992. But they have done a great job in getting it back up and running. They just opened the Amazon section of the park in December. That is one of the reasons we went to check it out.
I took this picture of the flamingos for my good friend Jordy, she love the flamingos. I told her that I tried to get one for her but it wouldn't get in the suburban, so this is the best I could do. We had a wonderful time with all the family. We are looking forward to going down this summer to help my MIL to redo her kitchen. That should be some good pictures.
