Alcove

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Psssst...Can you keep a secret? This is my very special place, at the end of the boardwalk, on the edge of Spring Creek. It is half-hidden and undiscovered by most, which allows me to claim it as my own for all the bird and wildlife watching. Some of my nature photos are taken from this spot...

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essentail facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." Henry David Thoreau

It's a great spot - thanx for sharing. But it looks like alligators would be hanging out in that creek!

voila un superbe endroit, ou je verrais bien la sieste apres cette nuit blanche a contempler les Colts victorieux..
Une belle carte postale cette photo, tu as des endroits magiques.

veiled a superb place, or I would see well the nap after this sleepless night has to contemplate the victorious Colts. A beautiful postcard this photograph, you have magic places.

This is a good place to go and hide out after the Bears' loss.

Victoria said...

That looks like just a perfect little spot. You are right to want to keep it a secret!

I understand so well this your secret place. It`s like from our summer place - during summer, not now :)
Thank you for your colourful photos, colours is so difficult to find now here from the middle of snow.

Lol, Mandi - you are absolutely right - that is where the gators hang out!
Olivier, I get your reference to the carte postale ;-)))
Frank and Victoria - normally I would visit there today, but even Florida is under this cold spell - we are in the 60's today, way too cold for me!
Mimmu - glad I can provide some color relief during your winter! Spring's coming y'all!

Ah yes Isabella, boardwalks are wonderful places, especially the little known ones. I've got a couple that I call my own too!!!
Cheers!
