We lived in Florida for seven years (and lived through four hurricanes!). We moved from Oregon to West Palm Beach which was to say the least a culture shock. The pace of life was faster and the topography….well the highest above sea-level “mountain” was the local garbage dump! The heat and humidity were oppressive (although I do admit to loving to sit on our patio by our spa drinking wine in January). What made Florida tolerable for me (other than some really great friends I made – and miss) were the birds. I don’t think I ever saw so many great white egrets, spoonbills, herons, sandhill cranes or ibis. Anne McKinnell a really wonderful photographer is in Florida right now and her latest images reminded of how much I enjoyed – and miss the birds.
