The television weather report tonight confirmed my hypothesis of a few days ago: Winter is Over. The forecast is in the low 80s for the next week.
Last summer I got the great idea to scan all the recipes I have collected over the years. You know, all those torn out of newspapers and out of the magazines in doctor’s offices. And the handwritten recipe cards from friends and family. And the cookie recipe on the bag of sugar. I dragged all of those out of the storage unit and took them with us in the motorhome. They filled a large box and three fat three-ring binders. And, I’ve been falling over them ever since. The scanner is way too slow. So today I decided to take photographs instead. Today I took 347 pictures of recipes.
We got veggie wraps at Publix and took them to Sombrero Beach. It was very crowded and we were lucky to find a parking place. Then we were lucky to find a picnic table. A large iguana walked past us and into the tall grass on the beach side of the fence. Then a young, bright green one came out of the tall grass to munch on the lawn. I made kissing sounds to get him to look at me.
This very large tree is near the street. I think it is a mahogany, maybe.
That looks like a Strangler Fig covering the trunk. If so, it will kill the host eventually. I’ll have to do some more research and a closer inspection the next time we go there.
