Thanksgiving Warmth

Wow this time last year, I was experiencing a bit of turmoil in my life; drama that could have been avoided, but when dealing with the immature that’s what happens.  Fast forward one year later.  I had a great Thanksgivings spent with my youngest son Tommy and the people of the campground where I was staying and where he works as a guide.  Old friends were there and so much good food I was in a food coma for hours after.  Of course while there I took out the camera, just didn’t have it at the dinner, nor did I have my phone.  I simply wanted to enjoy the meal and fellowship with those I’ve not spent time with in a while.  I really enjoy going down to Trail Lakes Camp Ground it borders the Big Cypress and so much wildlife all around makes it extra special!  Later in the evening I saw with Tommy by a roaring campfire and we enjoyed the warmth of the flames.

It was quite chilly even for Florida standards.  I ended my trip with a drive through the Big Cypress on Birdon Road over to Wagon Wheel Road then back on Turner River Road.  Driving

Beautiful sky no cloud and that deep azure blue against the sand colored grasses of the swamp.  On my way home I stopped and spent several hours at The Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk.  No bear this time, but the swamp was still teaming with birds and wildlife. It was a marvelous Thanksgiving and I would not change the way life is turning out.

I want to thank all of my readers and followers for a great year.  I was so unsure of myself when I started this blog, but I love the outlet it allows me and I am so glad you have all enjoyed my meanderings.  This next year promises to be so much better.  Thank you for your support.
