The View From My Window: Day Six

Sunset between Ft. Myers and Sarasota

There's a reason they call the stretch between Ft. Lauderdale and Naples Alligator Alley:

On Alligator Alley, I saw egrets, herons, an osprey, buzzards (turkey vultures to you non-Floridians), spoonbills, and, of course, gators. I finally had to pull over—like a bunch of other tourists had—and take some pictures of the wildlife posing for us.

Torn, my annual trip home is always just for me, as is Abe's to his family. That's how it works when you have children; someone has to be home. We travel as a family every summer and for Christmas.

Blobby: 80 mph on the highway, not even looking at the viewscreen. Aim and click. Sometimes you just get lucky.
