Debbie does...round the world
10th Jan 2009 - Florida
Out on the Florida lakes

Today we went out on the Florida lakes with Charlie and Annette - previously married friends in their late 50s who had invited us all to go out on Charlies boat for the day. The lakes area was wonderful and we also traversed down several canals and saw some of the lakeside properties. The lakes were quite big and it was a beautiful sunny day - not too hot and not too cold. Charlie was a great host and tild us about the various birds and showed us nests and we looked out for alligators Also went thru some stunning swampy type areas and took some great photos. After about 90mins on the lakes we stopped for lunch and had a great 'messy' burger. Then back out on the boat and back the same way spotting more bald headed eagles and my first alligator which was exciting. back to the house by 1600 and did my photos etc whilst Marion and jerry ahd a wee nap. Hotdogs for dinner and am now catching up on my blog whilst also watching BBC comedies such as 'As Time Goes By". Then played Mexican Train - a dominos type game which I really enjoyed and we had a lot of laughs.

A great day - I so love being out on the water with the wind in my hair - it is these times that I feel at peace with myself and the world.
