2014_Florida_1d_People_Jim-Peggy-Marge-Alex-BirdingWe went on a two week trip to Florida this month. What a great time, although the temperatures were in the 40 – 60º F range. When we left to return to Boise, Jacksonville had snow.

I will probably divide these posts into about 5 parts as I have over 300 photographs. No! I won’t bore you with all of them. I will only post those that seem to be more interesting. The food photos – yes we did have to eat – will be posted both here and in the Boise Foodie Blog. But for now, enjoy these photos of some of the places and flora we saw. Cheers! The photo here is of my sister and her husband and my brother and his wife watching the birds. Please Left-Click any of these photos to see enlarged.
