Escape to Florida – From Snow to Shining Pool!

From the snowy chills of New Jersey

Via the New Jersey Turnpike and beyond…

   South to the warm Gulf shores of Florida  

  We’ve been AWAAAY, driving nearly 3000 miles in thirteen days. Whew!

More photos and stuff coming soon…

Look Through My Window, To the Street(s) Below

Still “Winter Isolated” here in northern New Jersey, this morning I captured this image from our window, reminding me (obliquely?) of the classic Mamas and Papas song of forlorn love in the 1960s, here. And yes …those are still our trees in the foreground!

Thanks for viewing, and maybe even listening. Comments are always welcome. M 🙂

 

 

 

The “Line Up” – Starlings With Nothing Better To Do

“Hey Oscar! Look over there… I think they’re planning a ‘LINE-UP’!”
“Yeah! Tell the gang!”

Minutes Later…

“Whooo… Here they come from all over!” as Oscar and Felix excitedly head to the pole.  Line-Up! Line-Up!

Felix: “We’ll direct from up here!” Then, shouting to the incoming Starlings: “Be courteous and make room!”

 

“Get your spacing, mind your neighbor…”

Oscar, looking down: “You two go over there and fill in the spaces!”
