Augh... Friday! Use to be my favourite day of the week! When I worked, that is. Now, just about every day is my favourite! Turned out to be a great Friday here, maybe not as hot as it is in Ca., but in the 70's is just fine with me, with lots of sun to boot!
A bit of housekeeping today... a couple days ago, I blogged about the Allen Broussard Catfish Creek Preserve State Park! I had mentioned in the blog that it was a Gold Medal winner. Well, Dog Folks set that straight, by explaining in his comment that ALL the State Parks in Florida won this award... not only once, but twice. I assume this must be for some National Award in the U.S. Thanks Dog Folks.
Last week I broke the zipper on my most favourite motorcycle leather jacket in the world, so this morning I was out the door to try and take it to a zipper doctor in Winter Haven, however when I got there, it looked like the store had closed up last week! Bummer.
This afternoon, I found another Leather Repair Shop, up in Lakeland, so Judy and I took off on the motorcycles for an afternoon run to Lakeland. $50.00 will fully replace the zipper in my Jacket, so I am happy. It would have cost a lot more for a new jacket!
We stopped at the Circle B Preserve on the way home... I have lost track of how many times I have blogged about this special place, but here we go again.
When we parked the bikes, I was laughing at this car in the parking lot, who must have forgot his windshield screen, so he made one out of spanish moss! Whatever!
Apart from over 6 varieties of different water birds, here is what we saw today at the preserve... racoons, possums, geckos, wild boars, 13 big turtles, a bunch of alligators, and some humans. Every time you go on the trail, it is different, and amazing. We saw 3 possums today on the trail today. Never before can I remember seeing possums in the wild, only at the zoo. The pic above of the possum, is the only one we did not take today. I just wanted to show you what one looked liked!
Things are starting to warm up here quite a bit, and we are looking for some nice spring weather to finish off our winter here.
