I had a wonderful trip, but it was hot and wet! Even when it wasn't raining, it was wet! I'll sure need to get used to that again. I now fully understand when people talk about dry heat!
Pretty much stayed in the air conditioning. The one time I went outside with the neck brace on, I was steaming!
I didn't take many pictures, but here are a few.
I am captivated by Resurrection fern. It grows on all the oak trees down there. When it doesn't rain, the fern is brown like in this picture.
Immediately when it started to rain, the fern greened up! It would stay green for a day or two and then turn brown again.
It did that a few times while I was there. I loved watching it!
Also I was so sad that I missed the azaleas. While walking around the yard, I found a bloom -- one bloom -- but that was enough!
And there was a turtle in the pool one morning! (S)he was rescued, but was fun to watch for a while. Those suckers swim fast! When we would go near the pool, it would dive down to the bottom and tuck in the shell.
I ate lots of shrimp, fish, and attended a crawfish and crab boil. It was so hot there that day that I ate very little. The next day my family made crawfish etoufee out of the leftovers, so I was a happy camper!
Penny is waiting to be picked up, so I must get a move-on! I miss that little snot!
