So I was realizing that I never write about things that happen around where I live and I was wondering why I wasn’t doing that. Isn’t where I live (Florida…vacation capital of the U.S.) a viable destination that could be included in my travel blog? Of course it is!
So although I’ve promised you more about my recent travel to Victoria, BC (which I loved by the way) I am going to take the liberty to divert to my home happenings today.
You see here in South Florida it’s already nearing what most of the country would consider a hot summer but let me tell you that by South Florida standards this is spring and in the spring time everything is having babies and it’s so fun to watch.
We’ve had little baby rabbits and squirrels and mocking birds and, most recently, a nest full of ospreys being born. We’re having a thrill watching the ospreys learn to fly and catch their own fish and just learning to let go of the security of mommy and daddy osprey.
But just the other afternoon I was delighted to see a new family of Sandhill Cranes come visit our backyard, mommy, daddy, and two little Sandhill Crane babies. Inspired by that and the beauty of it all I made a little video of their visit with us. I hope you like it.
