Waterways

Mangrove estuaries of Florida

"Rivers are roads that move and carry us whither we wish to go."
[French original: Les rivieres sont des chemins qui marchant et qui portent ou l'on veut aller.]
Blaise Pascal

The question is: where do you wish to go?

What a beautiful river; I think I'd follow it wherever it went!

I love the blue of the water - where would I like to go? wow, that is a good question :)

To the sea, to the sea, to the beautiful sea . . . you and me.

Une belle photo, pour une belle citation de Blaise Pascal. Bravo. C'est le chemin du retour ?


A beautiful photograph, for a beautiful quotation of Blaise Pascal. Cheer. It is the way of the return?

But I guess that here you have some kind of a labyrinth? Maybe difficult to find your way anyhow?

It looks very nice though, so even if you lose some time....

You can go wherever you want, as least as far as the first alligator.

In Holiday I ever loved to go where heart drove me. Overall United Kingdom (what I consider me 2nd home) but I miss Australia, Japan and USA too.

Your friend Pascal has never heard of waterfalls Izzidee.

Beautiful photograph, beautiful quotation. Where do we wish to go? Too much to write for your comments - you'd tell me off...

The word Mangrove summons up Cairns for me and mangrove swamps. This is just stunning. I could live here.

I have been walking under mangroves, capturing crabs. I remember the brownish color of the shallow waters, humidity and mosquitoes! but it is so beautiful to see. This picture reminds me of a H. Bogart' movie.

That's the question-where do we wish to go. Most of us just go where the tide takes us.

I don't get out of Florida much. I'd like to go up into some mountains, even The Smokies would work for me. Something hilly, different, and not quite so hot and humid.

I loe this, it reminds me so much of Sarasota.

I want to go to go see snow for a day! Something to break up the monotony of the Miami summer.

I grew up in Naples and moved away when I was 17. So little is left of the Naples I knew from the 1960s, but the inland waterways and the mangrove swamps remind me of the Naples I once knew. More pictures like this! Thank you.
