There were several flocks of ibis flying around. Not sure where they were going – they do not migrate as far as I know. Maybe just looking for greener pastures. In early July we had enormous flocks of glossy ibis flying around the wetlands.

I never tire of a sunrise. Hope you don’t either.
As we pass the summer solstice, sun rise will be slowly getting later and later – and easier to get to. Although I made it both days this past weekend!!
Couple of pics from last Sunday.

Wetlands today and a history jaunt around Lake Monroe tomorrow. I’ve been reading a fabulous book Florida’s American Heritage River – Images from the St John’s Region by Mallory M. O’Conner and Gary Monroe. It explores the history of the region through it’s art.
Lake Monroe was the southern terminus of the navigable portion of the St John’s River and consequently of the exploration of Florida. In the 1800’s steam ships ran between here and Jacksonville. While I’m somewhat familiar with Sanford, I’ll be exploring DeLand and the northern shore of Lake Monroe.
Lots of history surrounds Lake Monroe which was the southern terminus of the St John’s river,
