Project 365 - Photo of the Day - May 26, 2008 - Part II

After my heavenly morning on the lake with Ronnie, I headed home to upload my photos. My sleepy children FINALLY got up at 11 a.m. and wanted to do something. So I made the suggestion of Long Key Park which is one of the new nature centers that opened up in West Broward across the street from Flamingo Gardens.

Rachel was all for it and Adina could barely get out of bed! But we finally got on the road by noon and we got ourselves Subway sandwiches and brought them with us to the park. We wandered the nature paths and looked for a bench, but the park is so new they haven't had the time to install any yet. So we plopped down on the path and just ate there . . . of course making sure that we threw all of our garbage away in the trash can! I still have a little parks and recreation in my blood!

These photos are a combination of Long Key Park and Flamingo Gardens. We went over there to get some fresh squeezed juice and ended up with lots of fun peacock photos (I swear the peacock was posing for me and shaking his feathers at me!!) and then discovered this really cool "secret garden" complete with a wooden gliding chair in a gazebo. I won't attempt to describe each photo, because I am too lazy today, but we really did have a good time. My girls really are troopers and they oblige their mom's photography adventures!

Wonderful set of pictures! I think my favorites are the close-up of the water lily, the parrot and the head of the peacock. They are all impressive though! Keep up the great work.
