I love ya Florida! See you next time..

Our Wheels have headed north.

It was time.

Out Homey was out of service…Looking good with some new paint covering the boo boos made in the past 14 years..

Florida this past month has been an scorcher for us. Very hot mid day. I feel my skin stinging when we are out in the afternoon. We limited our outside outings to morning and evening. Indoor activities mid day.

The birds are starting to migrate north..

Its time for us to do the same thing.

We had a wonderful summer in winter in Florida this year.

Spent time with many friends …and most of our time enjoying the great outdoors.

Here are my last few photos from Florida..

Jeff and I had never been to Mead Gardens outside of Orlando before…when a local friend told us it’s a good place for migrants we met him there to see what birds were coming in.

We saw lots of Prairie warblers..
