So often out in the Everglades it's necessary to tilt the picture plane to show the landscape to it's fullest. Here, in Morning Light, I've taken the frogs view and painted the swamp as though you are looking up from below. Aren't you curious about what might be around the bend?
My sister and her husband are visiting this week. For years I've told her that if she would only come in February, I could guarantee her a manatee. There's a sea grass bed at the end of our canal, and this time of year it's not uncommon to see a manatee, or a group, go up and down the canal on their way to a tasty treat. This year, however, it's been so cold that I haven't been out watching to tract their progress and note likely viewing times. I worried that I wouldn't be able to produce one as promised, so spent a couple hours researching where to see them at Manatee Park in Ft. Myers, and other places further away.
Our guests arrived yesterday around dinner time, and the first thing we did was take a cocktail out to the terrace to view the sunset. Sure enough, just as we sat down a group of manatees, including a mother and very young baby obligingly swam by. Perfect! She was so very delighted, and we were all enchanted. Phew!
