A few weekends back, this wonderful hunk of a man...
We put the boat in on the St. Johns, but our destination is
the Wekiva River...old Florida at it's best!
We have a flats fishing boat that can float in 6" of water
perfect for those places reachable only by
kayak or canoe otherwise.
This is the old bridge...it was replaced by the one behind it
several years ago. It completely raised up to let boats through.
They left part of it in tact as a little fishing pier.
This one is the railroad bridge that lifts up as you can see
Draw bridges have always fascinated me. I even used to have
a bad dream about teetering at the top of one! HA!
I have really gotten into angles and architecture lately.
They always capture my eye. This part of the bridge
has bird nests in it!
And of course, the welcoming committee!!
They lay with their mouths open to help vent
their body heat. They are truly amazing creatures!
This looks like it could be the bayou in Louisiana..
These are cypress trees and just look and feel so
ethereal. Love the reflections in the water!
A nesting hawk with babies chirping!
A little side waterway...so picturesque!
Their are actually people who LIVE on the banks of this
river in tents. I SO wanted to snap their picture, but
they looked a little rough so I didn't even ask.
People also pull in along the banks to swim, picnic and play.
Not sure how they got that rope up their, but I'm sure
lots of folks have had fun with it!
A larger boat anchored at the bank
I love how God put beauty everywhere. The lillies cover the
water on the side and are a food source for manatees. The
bright yellow blossoms just make me smile!
This little plant is everywhere too and makes me smile with
it's perky little green clover-like leaves that just stretch
toward the sun.
As soon as I saw this log in the water I though of the
Loch Ness monster and had to snap it!
Another fella that wanted to tell us to have a great day
as we exited the Wekiva!
This is the boat the Rivership Romance. I have never been
on it, but they serve meals and cruise around Lake Monroe
and the St. John's river. I'm sure it's fun, but I love my
more up close and personal view at my hubby's side.
The mechanism that raises the train bridge. It rocks on
that rounded part towards the bottom of the photo.
The underside of the new bridge. Kinda cool!
Thanks for coming along with us!
Oh and my MRI went fine!!
I was in the tube up to my waist for
about 25 minutes and did great!
Won't have the results til Tuesday, I think,
so please pray that it is clear of lesions, ok?
Love ya!! Really do!!
