Hello Sunshine!

Arrived in sunny Florida and did my first exploratory 12 miler.

Love that this cow is so fuzzy.

They appear to go on forever.

Very peaceful.

Have never seen a road this colour......... clay perhaps?????

Went for a tour of Fort Pickens located in the Gulf Islands National Seashore Park.

Lots of history. Did you know that Geronimo was held prisoner here for many years?

After the tour we explored the surrounding beaches.

The sand looked like snow.

Old footprints that have been windswept.

Came upon this and couldn't figure out what they were....... touched one....... dead jellyfish...... Eeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwww......... talk about 'Heebie Jeebies'. They were all over the shoreline. Needless to say, I didn't walk in the water.

Watched the sun set on the Gulf of Mexico.

Life is good.

Gotta run.

Thanks for sharing all those amazing beautiful pictures! My favorite is the cow :) The dirt is red because it has iron oxides in it. Pretty isn't it.

That fort looks really cool! Man, I wish I would have been able to go see stuff like this when I lived in Florida.

Did you touch those fuzzy little calf ears? I don't know if I could get so close and not try to sneak a little pet of those floppy things!
