Little Free Libraries - Two More

It was time to drop off a book today.

I took it to this Little Free Library.

I dropped off My Name is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok

The box was pretty full, but nothing caught my fancy today.

We rode around the neighborhood (San Marco) to another LFL.

Nope .....nothing here either.

That's the fun of Little Free Libraries's the thrill of the hunt.

Want to see if there are any Little Free Libraries near you?
Check out this link to their map.

But .....keep in consideration that not EVERY free library is
listed in the registry.

Some are free-range LFLs.
So, keep your eyes open.
You never know where one will pop up.

Little Free Libraries - Palatka Edition

When we went out to Palatka last week I wasn't particularly looking for Little Free Libraries.
But, I found not one,
but TWO!

One was outside of the Dairy Queen.
Books and ice cream there's a winning combination.

The other one was outside the local fire station.
Let me tell you something.
Those firefighters build a STURDY box!

This was a very well-stocked Little Free Library.

And of course, it didn't hurt that there was a firetruck parked right along side.

The Ravines

Spring has sprung in north Florida
and the azaleas are really putting on a show.

The Ravines Gardens is chock full of red and pink azaleas.

 There were two of these wooden suspension bridges.
They were fun.
We even caught sight of a bald eagle from one of them.
Unfortunately, it was too high up for me to capture a decent photo.

The view from the bridge.

 We saw several of these harmless brown water snakes (Nerodia taxispilota)
There were signs warning of alligators, but we were not lucky enough to see one.

There were irises all along the water ways.

Most of the walking was up and down steep stone steps 
and my calves are letting me know they did NOT appreciate it!

The rest of me did though.
It is a beautiful park and definitely different from what I expected.

Who knew Florida could be so STEEP???

Home, Sweet Home

As most of you know ..... Steve and I have moved from Orlando.

I went from a semi-rural/suburban neighborhood
to living in Florida's largest city.

I've always wanted to live on a river.
This one will do just fine!

Living in an apartment is just a stop-over while we figure out exactly where we want to live, but

I can truly say....

We are definitely
