The Sunshine State

Florida, the Sunshine State, lived up to its name today.

 

 

The temperature was perfect,

the wind non-existent.

Dinner was at Crab E Bill's on the water,

lobster bisque and blackened mahi mahi.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Entertainment was

provided

by the pelican fly team.

  1. Cynthia - well that is by far a better view of Florida.
    Pelicans!!!! It is a wonder they didn't join you, Paul and others
    of the family at the table - your fish dish would have disappeared
    in one fast gulp.
    Pelicans are certainly "FAMILY FRIENDLY" here at beach resort
    picnic and dining areas. They do not wait for an invitation
    to join in - ha ha.
    Cheers in between giggling at your Masterpiece Updated Portraits
    overnight.

    PS; So much for that expected storm here last night!!! A Fizzer
    but a cooling breeze came up and saved me from the sauna conditions.
    OH God - now February is just one day away!!! How I detest the February
    weather - many times the Arctic looks lovely!

    1. Oh I meant to also add the is a rather catchy name - "CRAB E BILLS".
      I'm sure he wasn't "crabby", hopefully the "Bill" wasn't over the top also.
      Yep - a very clever fish place name.
      Cheers

      Who would love to be at present in the water with those pelicans - stinking humid
      still with useless skuds of rain, making it more humid in not so glorious Brisbane.

  3. Pelicans are my favorite sea bird and we call them our family birds. Remember that silly poem "What a funny thing is a pelican, its beak holds more than its belly can."?

  6. If everyone up here in the cold North could realize their wish of being magically transported to Florida, the state would tip into the sea.

  17. @Cynthia, the coyotes, porcupines, steal the shedded antlers. I have little chance, methinks.
    The deer fighting are females! Most of our males still have their antlers. Highly unusual for the season, but it has been mild.
