Florida Vacation

Arrival

Some bad weather:
Storm

And a great sunrise (the one morning I actually got up early enough to see it):
Dawn

Overall it was a great week, even if the water was too calm for boogie boarding most of the week but too murky for snorkeling (presumably due to the dredging they were doing for beach replenishment).

It turns out the birds were the most interesting part of the week (at least when I had my camera out), especially the heron that would perch on the boardwalk of our house or one nearby to preen itself after the rain. Before I get to that, here’s the one good picture I got of a Black Skimmer:

And here are the best of the pictures I took of the neighborhood Great Blue Heron:
