You get skies like these, to watch in the Florida Keys



Photos by Richard Schear and Kay Davies


On our trip to Costa Rica, we had to change planes in  Miami so, rather than arrive in Costa Rica exhausted from a day of flying, we stayed for two nights in Miami on the way there and also on our way back. On one stopover, instead of just having time for a hamburger at the airport, we had time to take a tour down to the Florida Keys.

Wonderful! The heron (it is a heron, isn't it or is it an egret?) photograph is beautiful - what a lovely angle.
