Hopping Down the Bunny Trail: Happy Easter! (Part 1)

The sneaky little fae apparently enjoyed our last visit so much, that they decided to lock the gate to the trail we'd planned to hike this time.  So we had to hike the same one again. Maybe they just wanted to meet my son.

The Trail bunny left a basket for Justin (my son) and a trail of candy-filled eggs scattered along the path.

Continued (see part 2)...

Hopping Down the Bunny Trail: Happy Easter! (Part 2)

...continued from part 1.

After our hike we re-visited Green Spring, so Justin could see it too.  Take a look.  

My son took that photo Hubby wanted (I mentioned it in my last post) of me monkey- footing it across the fallen palm tree.

Finally, we came across a nut tree with a great BIG nut hanging in it... and as the saying goes, the nut doesn't fall far from the tree.  Warning:  If you don't want to spit your drink on your monitor, don't sip it before you view the next slide show.

Hope you enjoyed your Easter Sunday too!

Hippity hoppity,

Adventures in a Land of Wonder: Finding the Fountain of Youth

Window of the Fae

My hubby and I love exploring our area on the weekends.  

This past weekend I told hubby I was in the mood for an adventure, so without a word he jumped on the web to find a place we hadn't been before.  All he said was wear shorts and comfortable shoes.  I grabbed my camera and off we went.   

Apparently the sneaky little fae of Sanford had other plans for us, because we ended up stumbling upon Lake Monroe Conservation Area instead of our intended destination.  It was great!  We saw holes to who knows where, creeks, fairy braided tree roots, winged critters, wicked tree creatures - I even got to see where the faery council hold their meetings every new moon (see if you can spot it in the slide show below).
Later that day we visited Green Spring.  If you follow the link, you'll see why they named it so.  I ran out of room on my memory card, so I couldn't take anymore pix, but I will next time we go.  We have to go back... Hubby wants to get a picture of me "monkey footing" it, as he calls it, across this fallen palm tree resting over a creek.  It was just begging to be walked across, so naturally I obliged.  

I was thinking about our adventure and how we were like kids exploring the wilderness.  I realized we had in fact found the Fountain of Youth that Ponce De Leon had been searching for when he discovered our state. It's not in a spring per se.  It's in a flower, a bug, a tree, a cloud - it's in your soul!

Youthfully yours,
