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!
