The oldest city in Florida was one of the last stops on my almost month long road trip to Key West and back. While tired and lacking motivation, I did get these pics that I enjoyed.
Found on the boardwalk to one of the beaches
Seen on South Castillo Drive in Old Town
Just a peacock…on Magnolia Avenue
Patterns and shapes at the ocean’s edge
Fort Matanzas National Monument
Neat sunset seen with friendly folks along St. Johns River.
I went to the Florida Keys and stayed in Key West for 3 nights. I probably should have spent more time exploring the other Keys, but then again, I also like being in one place and exploring it in more detail. The weather didn’t cooperate real well, but I got these shots that I was happy with.
Boca Chica Key, just east of Key West
Chickens are everywhere in Key West! You can’t avoid hearing them, that’s for sure.

As one of the rangers said, the Everglades are not exactly pretty and photogenic in a traditional sense, but it’s a neat place for sure. Here are some pics.
Cool trees on a foggy morning
9 Mile Pond area…this is actually a man made body of water.
There were some gators staying pretty close to our canoe tour
More from the foggy morning
The sunsets weren’t great but it was still enat
Into the abyss! Hah
Here are some photos from the south part of mainland Florida…the Keys will be for a separate post…as will Everglades National Park.

A randomish collection of my photos from South Florida taken in February and March of 2015. Not much rhyme or reason to the order of them…and honestly I’m not sure if they’d all technically be Central Florida, but that’s what I’m calling them.
Cows! There are lots of them in Florida.
This scene in Brooksville screams inland Florida to me
As my friend said, “That’s so Florida”
First time I ever saw mossy fruit trees – St Cloud, Florida

Here are a few shots from Delaware and Virginia…not sure if the Virginia shots are technically part of the Delmarva Peninsula…I guess the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel is heading south would be considered leaving the Delmarva Peninsula. Whatever!

Along the US Highway in Seaford, Delaware
Heading onto the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel

I spend one day taking care of business in Ulster County in February, and I enjoyed taking these 2 photos.
AJ Snyder House, Route 213 Rosendale New York
Route 44-55 in Kerhonkson – always pretty
In the past month I’ve barely left Kent County, Delaware. I left for one weekend when I didn’t take my camera, and besides that, I think the only other time I left the county was a few minutes right across the border in Maryland. It’s been good, but I’m ready to go!
On a rural road in Cheswold, Delware
The tiny fishing and crabbing town of Leipsic, Delware

I’ve been at my parents’ farm for about a month, and have managed to get a lot of things done…one thing I have not done is to shoot many photos, but that’s alright…here are a few that I took when the mood struck me.
The cat tails are always cool, but even more so in winter
The sunsets on the farm rarely disappoint
I still think this looks like Pepe the King Prawn from the Muppets
