The last couple morning have been really "froggy" as it's known in my house. The fog's been so thick that I can barely see the car in front of me on the way to work.
This morning, Kaity and I took Will to school and were coming into Gainesville a different way - across Payne's Prairie on 441. We live on the prairie, just a different side of it, so it looks pretty similar to my normal drive to work. Lots and lots of fog. Since I wasn't in any hurry to get to work and Kaity doesn't get to do many special things by herself, we stopped at the boardwalk overlook for a few minutes.
Here's what it looked like as we started walking down the boardwalk. You can barely see the end of it.
The fog was masking the sun rise.
A different direction. The prairie is so interesting to me. There's trees all around and the all of a sudden this open space.
We've had a lot of crows at our house lately. I think there were 50 or 60 in our tree last night. I'm guessing that the prairie has just as many (or maybe it's the same flock.) Kaity was hoping to see a gator, but this was all the wildlife we saw.
Kaity really enjoyed the quick 5-minute stop. It was quite the treat and out of the ordinary for a school day.
She also requested a take a picture of the dead "pine" tree, so here it is. We're going to start working on tree id soon.
