This week I had the pleasure of taking Melissa from Minnesota out for the day with her friend Annie. Even though the day was a little on the chilly side by Florida standards, Melissa and Annie made the most of the day by taking lots of pictures in the overcast light. Melissa is a great photographer. I took Melissa and Annie to lunch at the Tarpon Lodge and then after lunch we travelled over to one of Melissa's favorite islands for some photography. We took advantage of this light rainy day which prompted the resurrection ferns to open up and allowing for excellent photo opportunities. Annie enjoyed learning names of the plants on our walk around the island. Notice the red coral bean in flower, this is the most coral bean I have seen in flower in one area in 20 years. It was an amazing day for taking photographs and a nature walk in the woods. Sun or rain there is always beauty in a day on the water.
Melissa see you in August and safe travels to Africa this summer.
