Today was a warm and humid day. It started mostly sunny and ended with clouds ready for a change. The temperature peaked at eighty degrees. Tonight it is blowing and raining outside. The cold front that is crossing the country has arrived. Tomorrow is forecast to be the coldest Christmas day in Florida since the late 1990s. In this area that means the low fifties.
I took a hike along the banks of the Myakka River this afternoon. It was a nice walk in the shade with regular views of the water and the wildlife. There wasn’t a lot of close wildlife. All of the gators were on the opposite bank. The wading birds were just scarce. Even so I took pictures of all of the photogenic creatures.
