On a Lazy Wednesday Afternoon...

Yesterday afternoon we had very pretty and also impressive clouds in the sky. We went down to the open water at the Indian River again to enjoy nature and the still warm evening sunshine and to watch things going on, in the sky and in the water too.


There was a big swarm of flying black birds loud screaming in the clouds...


A small airplane getting ready for landing by the close local airport...


The golden shine of the water in the last sunshine beams...


And then we discovered to our surprise a BIG stingray floating by in the clear waters. If you click on the picture you maybe be able to see his eyes, looking straight to me. I never have seen a stingray in my life for real and this was my big excitement for the day :)


And it looks like fall in Florida! The leafs are still falling from the trees and covering the paths. I love the sound walking trough the leafs.

I want to say also THANK YOU to all my friends who made all these kind comments on my blog in the last few days. I do appreciate your words very much, your tips, your recommendations and your compliments too. I have decided, I don't write an answer to every single comment anymore, if you don't mind.... My Wi-Fi connections here on this campground are o.k., but just o.k. and not good. I get more disconnected then connected and most of the time when I'm in the middle of my writings or uploading photos....phew... I hope you understand. :)

Coming Saturday we will be "on the road" again, leaving here more South but not knowing just now, where we will be the next week.
Stay tuned with me, I'll try to post again as soon as I can.

The Stingray experience was wonderful. I believe he WAS looking right into your eyes. They are amazing creatures. A few years ago, on a trip to Mexico, we were taken out to a sandbar miles out in the ocean and got to jump out of the boat and actually feed and pet them. They were very tame. It was before the Crocodile guy got stung by one of them and died...so we had no fear. They were amazing! For you to have one swim up and look at you while you were taking pictures is amazing!!!

Beautiful sky pics Sue - love the stingray! We don't get many of those in Eastern Oregon :_]

I like your progression from the leaf alone on earth, to the infinites waves and then finish with magnificent skies, full of clouds or birds - Conceptual.

I have always said the clouds/sky look different (and better) down in Florida. Thans for proving this for me.
