This black cat with white paws and chest looks so formal I've been calling him Tux, for Tuxedo. I thought of him as mine because I didn't know his history. Now I find his/her name is really Lucy. Oh well.
She silently goes about her business somewhat aloof, but will allow herself to be petted if you know how.
She's probably a good mouser, or crabber, silently stalking the creatures that live in the beach grass. Or maybe she just appreciates nature as I do.

This is the view I awakened to this morning, huge clouds, big surf, and a rainbow! A little later I even saw a dolphin, but they don't hold still for pictures.
Awesome? I think so. I often ask the locals if they ever get used to the beauty of the sea and they always answer no. And when I went down the road on my donut run this morning there were people all along the beach taking pictures. I don't think they're all tourists.
One solitary jogger.

As I was hiking at falling Waters State Park, I found a very large pine cone that I had the idea would make a perfect Christmas tree for my motel room. It was about 10 inches tall and quite regular and very beautiful.
So I picked it up. Bad idea! I should have been wearing potholders or something because that son of a gun bit me!
(I'm editing on my iPad, and it won't let me scroll down after the first picture to complete my post. Very annoying! Anyway the pictures after the first two are of Pine Log State Forest.)
|The water trickles down into a deep sink hole, and from there nobody knows.|
The notable features of this state park are sinkholes including a very large one fed by a waterfall which disappears underground. Since it's been dry here lately, the falls were a bit skimpy but beautiful nonetheless.

My backyard for the next three months!
It was dark at 5pm. That was a surprise! Guess I'll have to start the day early so I don't miss any Florida sunshine. Not much to unpack, and the forecast for tomorrow is a sunny 74, so what will it be: sand, surf, or spa? Stay tuned!
