Happy Thankful Thursday

Hello and happy Thursday,

I am back from my trip to Florida, we had a great trip. It included visits to many beaches, wildlife preserves and refuges, Florida State Parks. We drove to Florida making an overnight stop in Georgia to break up the long drive. 


On January 4 we arrived in Florida and making a stop at the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. The wildlife drive was open but other parts of the refuge was closed due to the shutdown. These are some of my images from the wildlife drive, lots of birds and some scenic views.

A pretty view of the sky and palm tree along the wildlife drive.


Great Egret and  Tricolored Heron.

I am thankful that we had a great trip to Florida and arrived home safely.
A thankful heart is a happy heart. 
am thankful for all your visits and comments.

The Screech Owl went missing for a few weeks, than I heard the birds fussing one day Dec 15th. I went to look out and there he was back in our Rhododendron outside the front window.  The Titmouse, Cardinals, Chickadees and Wrens were all fussing in the same bush. 








If you look closely you can find a Cardinal and partial view of a Titmouse along with the Screech Owl.
