Default Florida pictures!

I finally got to have my camera glued to my hands again! I forgot how much more complete I feel that way. The bf and I went to Florida for a few days last week and while I took a million and a half shots, I will only force a select handful on to you.

My goal for the week was to do pretty much nothing but this. Achievement unlocked!

We stayed with his mom at her apartment in Sarasota. There is a huge pond surrounded by trees and such, making for a very good wildlife watching spot. My favorite was this crane. There was also a GINORMOUS alligator snapping turtle. I mean it was big enough I was convinced for a couple days it was a small alligator.

Fun with silhouettes:

It's been forever since I've seen a full sunset:

We went to the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, which featured the best koi pond I've seen in a good long while.

There was a waterfall:

And statues:

Of course, the koi. Astonished koi is astonished!
