Views of New Orleans Audobon Park on St. Charles Ave.

Photos taken Oct. 8, 2011









If you are ever in the New Orleans area visiting the French Quarters, be sure to put this park on your list of places to see.  The trolley car actually makes stops at the park, and it truly is a relaxing place to walk around or rest for a while.  For more information about Audobon Park, you can click HERE  to find out more. 
Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit :)

Seaside Florida .... Pictures Taken Feb. 19, 2011




















This is a biking community....it's the fastest way to explore the area...I thought this bike was so cute with it's basket full of flowers, and this sweet lady resting on the bench, taking a break here,  gave me permission to take this photo of her with her bike....






I hope that you enjoyed the views at Seaside and the leisurely stroll...it was my pleasure to take you along.

Oaks By the Bay Park...at St. Andrews Bay Area in Florida

These pictures were taken Saturday, Jan. 29, 2011.....
Florida has so many beautiful things to see and do, and the mild winters make winter time bearable to me....we had a warm front pass through on this particular weekend that I took these pics,  and the temps was a perfect 71 degrees.

Now this week is another story... rainy and highs in the 50s....we'll just have to take the good with the bad down here in the south...It's typical winter weather....cold days with some warm fronts along the way.  Though I love living in Florida, I have to admit that I do love the mountain areas of Tennessee and mountain trails too and I think that I will forever say..... that I left a piece of my heart up in those Great Smoky Mountains back in 2006,  and my heart longs to go back there to visit again. My hopes are that Maybe I'll even live close enough to visit the mountains more someday. But if not, I will love this great State of Florida too, especially this place in these pictures that I'm sharing with you  today....it is just one of the many reasons that I love Florida. No matter where I may rome, I know a piece of my heart will always stay in Florida too....

Hope you enjoy the views....all pictures can be clicked to enlarge and then just press backspace to get back to this blog....






There's one of my favorite things in life...kitties....that was a nice surprise along the trail....he picked him out a great place to relax didn't he?









These three pictures were taken going over one of the bridges along the way to getting there...love those beautiful blue skies....and the boats docked in the harbor...

I hope you enjoyed the nature tour....I'll be back again soon to share more nature walks with you.
