I love the outdoors, but living in Florida you need to wake up early to enjoy the fresh air before temperature climbs up too high. I'm not an early riser so I'm lucky if I go on my walk once a month. When I do, I'm amazed by the life around me. There is so much to see.

 

We have so many animals and birds that are active in the early hours of the day and the lighting is just magical.

                        

                                                                                                                         

I was very lucky today. I had an opportunity to observe two beautiful aligators. A lot of people are not on the loving side of these water giants but let me tell you! When you watch them interact with their family, it is stunning to see how gentle and loving they are. As long as I have my distance and don't disturb them, I know I'm safe to enjoy this mom and her growing baby. What a great morning!
