Mom and dad had allotted 3 days to see all the sights in Florida. They had spent most of their holidays living it up in Georgia. One day had gone and so it meant our travellers had two days to see what they could. Mom and dad quickly got outta Miami and headed for anywhere else! They drove past the airport a couple of times and both admired the size of the airport. At this point dad decided to use the GPS as they wanted to see something different. Makes sense…go for it dad. So he asked mom where she wanted to go. Mom decided she wanted to go on an air boat ride through the Everglades and look at the wildlife. Dad thought this was a cool idea so off they flitted in their rented Fiat. Excitement went through the car at the unique sign. They hadn’t seen a sign like this before. No crocs though…except for mom…MOL They must be getting close…
There’s the air boat they rode in.
Mom is sorry for the blurriness of the picture but she got excited and didn’t take time to focus properly. At least she’s honest about her screw ups. These are Mr. Google’s water lilies. Mom could not get a picture close enough to show the detail in the lilies. These water lilies only open half way…they never completely open and only grow in the deepest part of the water.
Mom said she really liked this waterfall and after the boat ride was very relaxing. You looked way better before the air boat ride mom and dad! Holy cwap, this seeing different locations looks hazardous to one’s health.
Here mom have a mint julep, it will eliminate the vapours you seem to have…..very badly. There you have it. Day two in Florida is coming to a close. They have one more day…what will they do? We’ll see next installment my friends.
When mom and dad were in Barkerville they got their picture taken. Prepare yourself…..this is unique my friends.
Today is also Collect Rocks Day so Bashful and Chip went out to the Lane to chat with the local stoners and rockers. I see them headed for home now. They have some pebble with them.
Hey Shoko I would like to introduce you to my new friend. She is very shy.
What is her name Chip? Gee, I don’t know. She grabbed a ride with us when we left Barkerville. Really? Where did she hide? She climbed into the bag with the other flats. She must be hungry….what does she eat Chip? The same as you and Bashful? Yeah, let’s get your mom to give her some of the good stuff, sifted sand. Is she alone or did someone come with her from Barkerville? Another stone came with her. This little pebble is quite young. How old is she Chip? I don’t know for sure but she is around my age. Bashful is talking with her friend and thinks he may stay with her as she is very upset about leaving Barkerville. OK, I’m sure Bashful will help her. You make her comfy Chip and try to find out her name.
Mom is very happy with her canning from the other day. The end is now in sight.
I wonder if Bashful will bring the upset stone home? Guess I’ll find out soon.
