167: Bogs boots in the tropics

This morning's sunrise

The sunrise today looked a lot like yesterday’s.  There were lots of clouds and I had to wait for the sunbeams to shoot through the clouds.  It must have rained overnight.  There were puddles on the balcony and the sand was wet.

It got windy again, although not as windy as it was those first few days.  There were some pretty big waves out there this morning.


This is not the curlytail lizard that was sitting with me on the pool deck yesterday, but I think it is a curlytail lizard.  I spotted this guy on our way to lunch.  He was hanging out near one of those expensive-looking, gated, condos-on-the-beach.  I often wonder about those places.  I never see people there.  Maybe no one can afford them.

This is not the guy from the pool deck either.  But I did catch this one with its tail curled.  It was kind enough to sit there long enough for me to take several shots.  I’m having similar luck with the birds around here too.  The wildlife doesn’t seem to mind people too much.


Yesterday evening we watched some guys skimboarding.  A couple of them were quite good at it.  A couple of them were not but I give them lots of credit for trying no matter how many times they fell down.  It was all very entertaining and looked like fun.

I’m going to wrap this up.  I keep looking out at the ocean, my mind and spirit wanting to be outside rather than in here.  I hear winter will be welcoming us back to the Bogs when we return.  Might as well enjoy the warmth of Florida’s great outdoors while I can.

      Thanks, Karma. 🙂

      You wouldn’t believe some of the search terms/topics I get. Then again, you might. The internet is a funny place at times.

  9. The curly-tailed guy is really cute! When we leave Haiti, I’m going to miss the lizards.

    Hugs from Haiti,

  10. Take some of that Florida weather with you when you go home, and chase winter away 😉

    Why is it that no matter how many stunning sunrises and sunsets we see we never get tired of them? Each time is like the first time… Very nice shots, Robin! That was nice of the curly-tailed lizard to pose for you, he looks like a friendly little fellow…

    • Robin says:

      I think it’s a matter of how we approach them, Barbara. Or maybe it has something to do with the minds and awareness of those of us willing to get up to watch the sunrise or take the time to watch the sunset. I hadn’t really thought of it in those terms, but you’re right. Each times is like the first time. 🙂
