This trip was to attend a conference. The only other time I'd set foot in Florida was just that: my family was visiting Alabama, we got to the state line and stood one foot in Florida, the other in Alabama. I dunno, that probably doesn't count. Anyway, I spent most of my time actually cooped up inside doing my best to get the most out of the training and info sessions, but I did have the opportunity to take walks during one lunchtime and also in the post-session/banquet interlude. Surprisingly, once I'd gotten not too far from the hotel grounds, I found some interesting "nature" areas that hadn't been overly groomed. I watched a pair of Ospreys sitting in a nest tree and also a Northern Harrier hunting.
The area around a boat launch into Estero Bay:
An interesting tree, that a friend characterized as a Dr. Seuss tree:
And, a fun shot after I got back to the hotel. I flopped down to ground level to take this pic of a big fountain:
