Just look at this perfect glassy river that I saw the other morning…now is that not a perfect place to put in a kayak? Being a newbe when ever I get my kayak…this is where I will be putting in for my learning cruve….the eau gallie river is a fresh water river that runs into the intercostal water way..the Indian River…that is salt water …I am going to gather some history of this river and when I get on it with a kayak then I can take pics and post something like I know what I am doing lol….hopefully it will be as interesting as some your all adventures. This pic was taken at home park at the point where it flows into the Indian River.


It doesn’t take much to thrill me….

I am pretty sure that this is a Rosetta Spoonbill …I was taking a walk around the campground at Wickham Park the other day and at the end of one of the ponds entering the cg…I saw this guy…while tying to get my phone out and turned on …he jumped up and was starting to walk away…all the while I was trying to get a little closer …I was able to get this one pic before he flew away…Needless to say I was totally excited to see this bird…I thought I would have to go out in the wilds of a reserve or state park to see this…Judy if you read this and I am wrong about him please let me know what kind of bird it is….I want to put him on my have seen list.


I have been wondering what …

kind of water fowl this guy is…I seen him in the water at home park…the first one I have ever seen and not seen one since…really pretty bird black and white …again Judy if reading this can you tell me what it is….want it on my list too.


Now with out food….

Can’t get away without some food today! Made this delicious corn bread in one of my favorite cast iron skillets. Turned out great!


And I did not make it from….

scratch. It was a Marie Callender packaged product..low fat at that…let me tell you that you can not tell it’s low fat.Mmmmm good..if you like corn bread you have to try this…next time I am going to add some southwest goodies to it….


well that is it for now thanks for looking and come back soon

  1. I love cornbread and now I'm hungry.

  2. You are right on with the Roseate Spoonbill. It is the only bird around with a bill like that! Second bird is a Lesser Scaup. Nice pic.

    If I had an iron skillet I might try that corn bread. I wonder if you could do only a 1/2 or 1/4 package at a time?

  3. Thanks girls for you comments..add some south west type food to the cornbread gypsy...
    thanks Judy for the info...two more birds checked could do half the bag of corn is really not a very big bag...make some cornbread muffins...
