Road Trip: Bonita Springs, Florida

February 10, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

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:
