We went to Silver Glen Springs on Saturday for my daughter's birthday. We had the spring mostly to ourselves. Come here on a summer day and the entire spring will be filled to the brim with people. A spring day brings a quiet pool filled with our laughter and splashes, our own private pool. This day we just missed a momma manatee and her babe. The weather, however, was beautiful. The water, 72 degrees, and the air, 68, which meant is was a perfect day to swim and then picnic on the lawn in the Silver Glen basin. A short trek into the woods takes you see the boils which are baby springs.

A second trip early this February was at the Wildlife Drive at the Canaveral National Seashore. I am a dilettante as a birder since my best friend is a serious birder. Therefore I can recognize some birds in the wild. We have flocks and flocks spending time here right now. I was lucky enough to capture these two Roseate Spoonbills together at the at the National Seashore. I tend to think anthropomorphically about these two as lovebirds. They still were fun to watch as they foraged for lunch.
Keep your eyes peeled this week for your moments of wild!
