So, while many of my upstate New Yorkers are in the middle of snow and extreme wind chills, I have been spending time in Florida. While the weather has not been seasonal weather wise, each day has been sunny and 50 degrees warmer than back home.
Yesterday, I spent the day touring the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge on the northern Gulf coast of Florida. I saw alligators warming in the Sun, ospreys hunting over water pools, pelicans gliding over Gulf waters and northern visitors keeping out of the cold.
As the Sun moved closer to the horizon, I photographed the St Marks Lighthouse and got the itch, the itch to share it with you all here.
