Just a glorious April Saturday in Central Park....On our way to see Roundabout's production of "Les Liaisons Dangereuses" Central Park, in all it's Springtime splendor, provided the perfect photo opportunity. Both the park and the play were delicious and fun, just the perfect combination of enjoyments for a wonderful Spring day. (seen best in large view, click on image)

Daffodils are one of the earliest celebrations of Spring in my yard. Seems as if they can be long anticipated and then taken for granted as the larger "show" begins with cherry blossums, tulips and lilacs. For sure, mid-April is prime time for daffadils on Long Island.

Soo...we stop at a park to have a picnic lunch and in very short order we have company. As I started to take this cute guy's photo he became very curious and kept moving closer. It was me who finally ran away as he tried to jump onto the camera!! Attempts to shoo him away were unsuccessful and the lunch was consumed in a hasty and defensive manner.

Once the novelty of seeing a Florida pelican passes it becomes apparent that they are everywhere. Unafraid and daring, pelicans fight with fisherman over bait and pier space. Florida may not have our geese problem but these guys seem to keep local anglers on their toes!

Evidently you can not visit Florida's Everglades without the required airboat tour. I have to admit that it brought back childhood memories of a "gimmick" TV show from the late 50's where good guys chased the bad guys in airboats. In reality, we saw a good bit of wildlife including a Bald eagle and a few alligator nests. All in all a very worthwhile experience, one to check off on the "Life List". :-) (click on image foe best view)

The former Coast Guard Station at Peanut Island is now part of the Kennedy Bunker historic district on this small island off Palm Beach. The island was created from dredge spoil from Lake Worth inlet. Dense vegetation made the island an ideal location to camoflague JFK's cold war bunker. During the Kennedy administration the summer White House was located on Palm Beach, a very short boat ride away. Local lore states that the boys from Massachusetts were frequently seen water sking in the area around Peanut Island.

Our 2008 Florida "Road trip" has made posting photos a challenge only due to a whirlwind of activity...... Yesterday we toured this historic site. This image is of the Kennedy Bunker, JFK's fallout shelter built during the Cold War. In the early 1960's, JFK's summer White House was in Palm Beach, Florida. Palm Beach was the Kennedy Clan's escape from winter throughout JFK's life, including his years as persident. This bunker built on Peanut Island off Palm Beach was top secret and an important command post during the era of the Cuban Missile Crisis.
