If this #woodstork #stork shows up at your house with a delivery, you might be in for a little surprise. The wood stork isn’t threatened globally, but within the US it is threatened. Saw this stork perched this morning looking for something to eat in #beautifulfla #boyntonbeach #florida #fl (at Boynton Beach, Florida)

An iguana lazes on the pedestal of the bronze Barefoot Mailman Statue currently located in #hillsborobeach #browardcounty #florida #fl memorialized the 11 ‘barefoot mailmen’ who carried mail between #palmbeach and #miami before the two were connected by roads. The statue in Hillsboro Beach comemorates James “Ed” Hamilton who lost his life on the route suspected to have been eaten by alligators trying to cross Hillsboro Inlet. Passed by this statue at the town hall on a #beautifulfla day. (at Hillsboro Beach, Florida)

This #gophertortoise just giving me that suspicious look from his burrow. #tortoise can live a long time, this one can live until 40-60 years in the wild. Some of their burrows can be as much as 48’ long though this one is likely much shorter. Hope he enjoys a #beautifulfla day in #boyntonbeach #fl #florida (at Boynton Beach, Florida)

This yellow-bellied slider is buttoned up in the middle of the road! Hope he makes it back to the pond. Judging from the moss growing on the back maybe he is trying to dry out in the sun. Actually while this #turtle is native and very common in the southeast, it is not native to south #fl only being introduced to the region through pet releases. It is now extremely common throughout #florida #beautifulfla #turtle #yellowbelliedslider #wildlife (at Boynton Beach, Florida)

Gou Lou Cheong Chinese BBQ, what I would call a culturally authentic Chinese restaurant. I have yet to see a place like this outside of Chinatown in #nyc but here we are just off 441/SR7 in #lauderdalelakes in #beautifulfla in the middle of #browardcounty enjoying some of the finest #chinesefood I have ever had. I got the pork over rice and didn’t regret it. Dumplings extra-ordinaire! FYI cash only! #fl #florida (at Gou Lou Cheong BBQ Restaurant)

The rain finally moved out revealing another #beautifulfla day so I took a trip to visit my colleague at the famous Manolo’s. Particularly renowned for their churros, they also have other Pan-Latin American fare. #miamibeach #miami #dadecounty #florida #fl #churros This particular eatery actually started as a churro cart in Buenos Aires. (at Churros Manolo Miami)

If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, then it’s probably this Muscovy duck! The #florida #muscovyduck (Carina moschata) is actually an invasive species. This duck was relatively brave, waddled right over to me in a parking lot at a Publix in #davie #fl #beautifulfla and I wondered if it was injured or unable to fly. (at Publix Super Market at Shenandoah Square)

Flossy’s Fountain , Mizner Park, Boca Raton, FL



Flossy’s Fountain in #miznerpark #bocaraton #fl #florida #beautifulfla Long time South Florida benefactor, Florence (Flossy) Keesely, had been involved in show business for most of her life. Originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, she met and married husband Nick in 1932 and soon moved to New York City. Flossy moved to Fort Lauderdale in 1966 moving to Boca Raton 10 years later. She became heavily involved in the community and in numerous charities including the Habilitation Center for the Handicapped, the Boca Ballet, Harid Conservatory, Lynn University, Florida Atlantic University, and the Boca Delray Music Society. Flossys Fountain is a seven foot bronze sculpture and fountain at the entrance to the pavilion and amphitheater created by Israeli sculptor, Yaacov Heller. The sculpture is a likeness of Flossy. Flossy has sponsored countless musical and theatrical performances, including the Florida Ziegfeld Girls, the Caldwell Theater, and the Symphony of the Americas.   (at Mizner Park Amphitheater)

Welcome to the Desert Inn in Yeehaw Junction, FL



The Desert Inn  in #yeehawjunction #florida was founded as a trading post in the 1880. The present building dates before 1925 and served as a supply and recreational center for cattle drovers, lumber men and tourists during the era when much of #osceolacounty was still undeveloped wilderness in #southfl. Cowmen working the free ranging cattle on the palmetto prairie lands in #fl came to the Desert Inn to eat, drink and dance at this oasis in #beautifulfla where they could enjoy some relief from their arduous labors. Local patrons of the trading post and restaurant included African Americans and Seminoles who had to grapple with separate facilities during the era of segregation. The construction of roads in the 1930s brought tourists to the area and a set of overnight cabins were erected behind the original building. While the Desert Inn was still a popular place to stop, this historical roadside motel is now closed. Stopping by today off of the #flturnpike I very much enjoyed the ‘Jackass Crossing’ mural at the crossroads of SR60 S Kenansville Rd and #us441 #nrhp #history #lovefl #floridahistory (at Desert Inn and Restaurant)
