Pix - Sunday Safari - Upper Tampabay Trail

You guessed it...with Tropical Storm Debby hanging over Tampa...I took my regular Sunday Safari. If you ever have a chance to hike in a tropical storm...I recommend it. Fun. Changes the earth more than just the obvious.
 Enjoy these pix of the Upper Tampabay Trail
 Sorry for all the raindrops on the pictures...but remember...I was in a tropical storm.

I wasn't the only nut out there.

Hope you have a great week!

Pix -- Monday Peddle

Felt odd not posting a Sunday Safari. So I carried my camera today on my exercise peddle. These are in and near Rowlette Park in Tampa, and our local reservoir. Hope you enjoy. (If you do...consider linking over here from your own blog, or favorite social network...I love attention *smile*)

Have a great week.

Pix - Sunday Safari - Trout Creek to Morris Bridge Road

Molly is still favoring her foot (cut it at the beach 3 weeks ago) so I headed off on my own Sunday Safari again, this time east, to the Trout Creek Wilderness Park...which connects via bike/hiking paths to Morris Bridge Road Park (and Flatwoods Park...I didn't get that far). Saw deer, a pack of havalinas (those things way I was getting my camera out of my pack that fast), a wild turkey, and of course a couple ubiqutous gators. Hope you enjoy my pix

 If you aren't from the south...the phalic roots sticking out of the ground are cyprus knees.

 The Hillsborough River

 Had to throw in a picture of a turtle...I was out looking for wildlife...afterall.
 I should have set a quarter by this was about as big as my fist.
This little guy was about 3 feet long

 This was the other guys older brother...he was about 6 feet long

Have a great week.

Pix - Sunday Safari - Hillsborough River/Bay

Molly's foot needs a few more days, but she got to go for a motorcycle ride yesterday...cooled off at Lake Thonatosassa. The folowing pictures are my traipsing around by myself along the Hillsborough River, the Channel, Davis Islands and the Yacht Club. Hope you enjoy

 I like train tracks
 Tampa University in the background

 Kennedy and Cross Town bridges over the Hillsborough
 I love the train trestle
  The Channel

 My bud, a Brown Pelican
 This is where the RNC convention will be in a couple months

 I bought this little bungalow with my Two Brothers advance  (bwa ha ha)

 Tampa Yacht Club

Yall have a fantastic week.
