Daydream Cottage

So there we were less than a mile downstream on Mason Creek to the Gulf of Mexico. Hidden in the woods was Daydream Cottage, so remindful of a north woods Minnesota cabin but with all the amenities and a tropical atmosphere. We knew at first sight we would love it.....  Come on along down the driveway and take a look.....
Actually besides hanging out on the porch and the dock we've been hiking/birding all the local parks and refuges with Miss Lily who is being kept a safe distance from the alligators. I'll have lots of pictures to post when we get home.....

A Note From Florida

For the benefit of my blogging friends in the Gopher State I won't emphasize the high of 75 degrees today here in sunny Homosassa, Florida as opposed to the -45 wind chill when we left home almost  two weeks ago. Our friends Gary & Rosie flew back home to Apple Valley, MN. yesterday. We had a great time with them as always birding, sight seeing (even some manatees), canoeing, and playing cards. We also revisited our old haunts at Cedar Key where  I was able to order some of Tony's world championship clam chowder.  Yummy!
In addition you may have noted I was finally able to attach a few pictures to this post using Mrs T's laptop. I hate this cumbersome machine for typing with my awkward fingers and its jumpy cursor. Hopefully when we get back home my trusty desktop will be in top form and I can get back to my regular blogging routine.......
take care,
Ray & Barb

Anne Murray

I loved that Canadian gal in the days when music touched your heart.  Yes we are going but we'll be back soon enough to the land we love best.   Yah. You betcha.   Eleven months out of the year.....:)
