Sights and Sunsets in the Sunshine State

By Dave Knospe


This picture was taken on the Southwest coast of Florida in the early spring. Birds like this are common in Florida, whether you are on the beach or inland. While they do like water, there is so much water in the state of Florida that you are never far from this beautiful wildlife.



There used to be a tourism commercial that said “A bad day in Florida beats a good day almost anywhere else.” That line couldn’t be more true when it comes to a ‘cloudy day’ like this one. The clouds add an extra special effect on the sunset over the gulf of Mexico.



Who said sunbathing is for humans only? Notice the water in the background, that’s the calm and peaceful Atlantic¬†ocean (believe it)!



Back on the west coast for this picture. Some people call it the “paradise coast” and it’s pretty easy to see why. It’s tough to beat the weather in the winter months, that’s why the population nearly doubles every year between the Thanksgiving and Easter.


If this doesn’t make you want to take a vacation down to Florida, I don’t know what will.


Mid-day nap anyone? Enjoy the cool breeze and warm sun nearly any day of the year in Florida. In fact, it’s not a bad first improvement to make on any vacant land in Florida. Step 1: Make you down payment. Step 2: Install a hammock!


When I first started living in Florida I thought people were crazy to go swimming at sunset. “Aren’t you going to be cold?!” I’d ask, but this bird knows better. The water is perfectly warm for a dip even when the sun is on it’s way out for the day.
