Spring is springing

I'm heading out for a daylong photo shoot: St. Augustine, Washington Oaks State Park and Big Talbot Island. I'm looking for some more photos for La Florida. The weather here is drop dead gorgeous.

SGT Mark is on rear "D" so he has formation both today and tomorrow. Should be a quiet weekend. There are rumors that the First Lady may visit Ft. Bragg in the near future. No confirmations yet.

Mike is in town and I need him to sign a photograph for Lolaberly that he took in Deerfield Beach a while back. She won one of the caption contests at La Florida.

I am hoping to visit him in Port St. Lucie in a few weeks. I can't wait to see the preserves which he helps to manage (although my snake boots have not arrived yet). The slither factor is one of the downsides to working outdoors in Florida. However, in 10 years in working on environmentally sensitive lands, I have seen few snakes...most have been garter or black snakes.

Hope the trip goes well and you get some good piks.

REALLY hope the snake boots gets there before you go on your visit. Can't wait to see the new pictures of St. Augustine since we will be there next week.

It was a great day. Weather was wonderful. We sort of over shot the day and didn't make it to Big Talbot Island. But the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, which has a world class bird rookery, and Washington Oaks Garden State Park were sensational.
