What a difference a week and about 1200 miles makes! This is the scene, above, I woke up to this morning. And the images below are from this same time exactly one week ago! At this time last Thursday, I was enjoying a delightful boat ride up the Intercoastal Waterway from Venice, Florida north to Sarasota Bay; along the way, enjoying birds and reference material galore, not to mention Florida sunshine. Well, such is life!
