...after a few days of driving Beloved bonkers. :)

It was lovely, even with the threat of hurricanes. I mean, seeing the "Are you ready for hurricane season??" sign outside Wholefoods wasn't exactly confidence-inducing. We had a proper storm on my third day in Florida, complete with the gale force wind, and I did question the choice of season for traveling abroad.

But anyway.

I have discovered that Florida has the most vicious mosquitoes I have encountered so far; that ants are as vicious (I mean, *ants*???), and that there is such a thing as flying cockroaches. Argh.

On the other hand, I saw a bittern (very difficult to see over here), a couple of strange coloured herons (or egrets... Could have been either), and I am pretty sure I saw an armadillo. :)

Also, having the use of a private pool for daily lounging and/or splashing about is a fine thing indeed. :)

But the best experience ever was riding in an air boat in the Everglades. That was absolutely fantastic, can't wait to do it again. :))

Pictures to follow........
