We Get Visitors

We have been enjoying the wildlife here in Florida.  It is quite different from the animals and birds we see regularly at our home in Arizona.  We don't have to go very far either.  Several of them like to drop by our trailer for visits from time to time.
These two drop by the trailer every evening now and wait for dinner.  If we happen to be gone - no problem.  They'll wait until we get home.  I guess they know an easy touch when they see one!
Now that we've moved across the pond, we're on the same side as the iguanas so I can get better pictures.  They live a few spaces away and like to take walks toward our trailer.
They don't like anyone to get very close.  They usually take off in a funny run with their long tail flying when anyone approaches.
This one preferred to swim all the way across the pond, then back, rather than let me get too close.  He was an excellent swimmer!
On a recent bicycle ride around the neighborhood, we came across even more wildlife.
We have these in Arizona!
Maggie tried making friends with this Gopher Tortoise on one of our walks.  The tortoise wasn't too interested in meeting Maggie though.
Tomorrow, after watching the Royal wedding, we're heading north along the coast to try and catch sight of the shuttle launch.  Hopefully, it won't be too cloudy to get some pictures.  Then next week Ceekay, from Thinkin' of Home, comes to visit.  I anticipate a busy week!


  1. Who knew iguanas could swim?! Those ducks are sure cute.

  2. Tape the wedding. I don't know if I will get to watch it.....I can envision it of ice tea, shorts, fan blowing, and watching the wedding. Oh, don't forget the foot stool!!

  3. Hi Candy! Thanks for commenting on my blog! I love your pictures! Maggie is beautiful! I hope that you get a clear view of the shuttle launch. I am sad that the program is ending. :(

  4. You sure have the wild life around you! They are always fun to watch.
    Have fun with Ceekay this week!
