Trip to Florida: Part Two

Let's continue today with some more random
Florida pictures...
because I know everyone is in a winter slump up north yet!

A prickly cactus just laying beside a road:

A gorgeous flower we saw when we went on a walk.
Is this a Camilia?  Begonia?  Anyone???:

Seagulls chillin' by the waves:

Saw this Dad and his little girl as he was giving her loving surfing lessons:

Madeira Beach around dusk. Those two chairs are calling me today, how about you?:

A longer shot of the same spot:

Seagulls admiring the sunset:

Another chair awaits you!:

Lovely Hibiscus!:

More  posts are coming of some more Florida
and even of some Savannah....
stay tuned!!

love the Florida scenes, all are very familiar since i love only a short way from these scenes. these are the reason we live here. can't wait on savannah since that is where I used to live before florida.

Ruth Hiebert said...

Each of these pictures is beautiful,but it was the Hibiscus which,for me was the winner.

Brian Miller said...

Tracy said...

Joan, My favorite photo is of the seagulls admiring the sunset! However, they are probably thinking, 'Well Crap, now who will feed us?'
I think your flower is a camilla...the leaves don't look like a begonia, but what do I know"?

Unknown said...

You mean that first flower wasn't a rose? What do I know! Great photos...make me long for the snow to be gone!

Vicki Holdwick said...

Joan, I am so missing the beach, the roar of the surf and the wonderful sunsets. Your pix are wonderful especially the sunset.

We are back in Southern Michigan, cold and snow covered, but I know that Spring is coming soon.


Linda Reeder said...

Grandmother Mary said...

I love the seagulls admiring the sunset- beautiful!

Mellodee said...

I could be wrong (who, moi??) but I believe the first red flower is a red gardenia.

Shelley said...

Wish I was on those beaches right now! Great photographs - loved what you did w/ the flowers!

Unknown said...

That's a camelia Joan and a pretty nice one too. Love the photos but I'm waiting on the ones from Savannah...!

Carol said...

I truly love Florida, it's a far cry from MN giggle. I cried at your post. I know I am not alone. I feel for you also.

Such heavenly pictures!!

Sharon Wagner said...

Far Side of Fifty said...

I think a camellia is nice on a cold winters day:)

Hilary said...

I love the contrast between the cactus and the flower below it. And I'll take any one of those chairs with their beautiful surroundings, please!

SquirrelQueen said...

I can hear those chairs calling my name! Beautiful flowers, I agree with the camellia also.

Savannah, I'm looking forward to those. When I lived in GA I drove over to Savannah every time I could get away for the weekend. Hope you had fresh shrimp on the river front. Or maybe a walk in Bonaventure cemetery?
