I thought I would start the blog with some photos I did not put in the last blog because of the long time I spent on the computer. I am using the wifi at the marina so it is their minutes I am using not ours.
I liked a couple of photos I took at Flamingo Park.
I left you with a photo of a strange plant and asked you to identify it. It was the flower of the banana plant and the little yellow things at the side of the plant were the very small baby bananas. The next photo is a bigger view of the flower with bigger bananas beneath it. I am always amazed that bananas grow upwards.
The other was a group of lovely little chicks, 16 altogether.
Aren't they cute I hear you say. Well, this is the reverse of the ugly duckling. The chicks are real cute but the parents are plain ugly, especially the male.
I saw a tree that I do not know the name of. If anyone can tell me, I would love to hear from them. You can always comment about my blog after reading the blog.
We are now in Ft. Pierce. We are staying in a marina tonight because the generator is not running and with night temps in the upper 70s it is very difficult to sleep. As you know, I like my sleep so we decided to stay cool tonight.
On the way to Ft Pierce we saw a sky scraper being built. There was a very tall crane to the side of the building and on the boom of the crane were three people standing/kneeling without harnesses. They must be crazy. I would be afraid the wind would blow me off.
To get to our present marina we passed a couple of interesting sights. One was of a crane on top of a rock island in the middle of the waterway. We wondered how the crane got there and what it was doing.
