We made our first official trip in our new home, Delores.
During our time in the Everglades, we had our first guest, Luke's lovely sister, Carol, joined us for three days. Now, if you haven't been in the Everglades, it is a gorgeous spot in winter, where the sun is bright and the nature is varied. Seeing beautiful birds, fishes and yes, those gators is really something everyone should see. Just not close up and personal. Walking the dogs, one of those green boys got a glimpse of our well fed pooches and decided to swim quickly toward us. We ended up taking the dogs quickly away from his eyeline, and back to the campground. They aren't kidding when they put up those signs, I suppose.
I spent my spare time reading Lauren Groff's book of short stories, Florida, while escaping gators and enjoying the sun. If you haven't read Ms. Groff, please do, as her writing is beautiful and haunting. But don't expect this book to be a feel good read. The darkness of the stories was overwhelming at times, but still worth reading. Each of the stories has a Florida connection, even if some are based in Europe. Not my favorite book, however the writing alone is worth savoring. I recommend the book with four stars.
