Florida trip, Part I
I am linking up with Mosaic Monday and Our World Tuesday They are both fun memes to participate in...I hope you can join in with the fun and check out some of the participating posts.
On March 13th, hubby and I went on a two week road trip to Florida. I did the driving and I drove straight to our first night at Jacksonville Florida without stopping except for short breaks. Surprisingly the drive went fast, maybe because I was happy to leave the cold and snow behind me..LOL!
Our second night we moved down the Atlantic coast to our hotel near Saint Augustine Florida. We spent the next day and half checking out various beaches and parks.. Besides the cool little coquina rock tidal pools, a pretty beach we saw a few shore birds like the cute Sanderlings..
Scenes from our walk along the beach at the Washington Oaks State Park. This park has two parts, one is the beach and across the street are the formal gardens.
Some of the Coquina Colums seen on the beach at Washington Oaks State Park. This is the largest cropping of the Coquina rock on the Atlantic Coast.
The pond, moss covered trees and plants are all looking lovely in Florida.. In the formal gardens are some beautiful oaks, hickory and magnolia trees. And beyond the hammock are the marshes of the Matanzas River.
Some scenes from walking the trail at the park.
Above are a few of the birds we saw at the Washington Oaks State Park. I hope you enjoyed my post. Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. I appreciate the nice comments..
