Here are some pictures from Florida Keys, and Everglades National Park. Not too many, since we sort of decided not to worry about taking pictures of scenery or animals, or whatever.  I guess there are enough pictures of alligators, etc.  These are just pictures that were taken with my phone.

One is from a lunch stop at a place in Key Largo (I think) called Lazy Days.  It seemed like an appropriate stop to make for a couple of Days who were doing their best to be lazy.  Anyway, the food turned out to be pretty good, and they had a nice deck to sit on overlooking the Atlantic (or that part of the ocean).  We sat and watched pelicans and gulls (laughing gulls, I think).  More on the bird sightings later.  Our bird list is in my suitcase, which was not put on the plane in Ft. Lauderdale for the trip back, so it is delayed.  Not lost, I don’t think, but delayed anyway.  So, I will be getting it sometime tonight.

Oh, well there is one picture of a bird.  That is a black vulture looking down on Kathy.  We had jumped out of the car to try to get a better look at a Swallow Tail Kite that had just flown by, and when we got back to the car, he was sitting on the tree looking at us.  I suppose they are attracted to cars on the side of the road.  Never know.  Oh, we did see the Kite.  Saw him more, and better from a back country boat ride we took from the Flamingo Landing in Everglades.  That was a nice place.  But, I will get back to that.  Maybe we will put a few of Kathy’s pictures in the gallery as well.  Just don’t expect a lot of nature photography.
