The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

[JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

Vultures, Turtles and Ickle Baby Gators

Just a few photos today. I've been trying to type a post, but have lost patience with trying to type accurate and coherent sentences on a virtual keyboard.

I'll just point out that there is a turtle somewhere in the water shot, although it may not be too clear.

There is no photo of the ickle baby 'Gators, as I forgot to get the iGadget out.

Twas another good day (and silly hot).

(Note 1: I don't think the photos are going to land in this post in a logical order and I can't quite be moved to try to sort that.
Note 2: our car is the nicely wrapped Mini Clubman, not the sloppily wrapped vehicle being unwrapped by the vultures)


  1. Viv & I were driving down Alligator Alley a few years ago when we had to stop at a (closed) visitor centre because of her travel sickness. She scuttled off to a secluded area to relieve her sickness....all over a big juicy alligator! Fortunately it was on the other side of a chain-link fence. So effective was it's camouflage that she just hadn't seen it.

  2. I'm more impressed that anyone can get travel sick on roads as flat, smooth and straight as are found in these parts than about failing to spot a 'gator at such close range!
