Shark Valley- Big Cypress
Spent the day going to Shark Valley National Park and Big Cypress Nature Preserve. They are both spectacular. I will post photos of them tomorrow.
Yesterday -- on my evening jaunt to the slough to watch the gators and birds... a spectacular rain/thunder storm came up!
The sky was overwhelmingly beautiful! The sunset peeking through the thunderous noisy clouds was pink and orange. The sky beyond was a pale blue.
All of it took my breath away.
You can also see where I have begun painting ... although I must confess-- I am MORE interested in going around the park and seeing EVERYTHING... rather than staying indoors and trying to paint.
Perhaps... painting will come later this year on this body of work?
Please let me know if you've ever been to the EVERGLADES -- and what part you liked best -- so I will not miss one single thing!
Tomorrow... I think I will travel down to Key Largo...
92 here today.... HOT!
