On my walk...

Roses blooming in January in Venice, FL.

The Venetian Waterway--rarely this deserted looking.


Every fisherman is issued a heron to guard the bait bucket.*


Hard to believe I soak in these colors on a daily basis and still struggle with keeping the blood pressure down.
The salt air maybe??
 * Sorry, Patti, the herons are not for hire.  This is a generous volunteer effort on the part of retired herons.  At best, the might get a small stipend or a free snack on some bait shrimp.

  1. I love the way the herons have become pests!
