I spend a lot of time there, and in future, it’s the only one of R’s places I’ll visit as–pending disaster–he has sold his other house. That’s the one with the pool. He’s in the process of moving stuff over already. I have a terrible feeling it’s going to be stuffed with crap by the time he’s finished, as he hates to get rid of things. Meh. He closes early in February, so there’s not much time for him to sort and throw and donate.
I better get a few more photos over there before it’s gone, huh?
It was a dark and stormy afternoon…. 🙂 Actually, it never did rain, but the clouds were impressive.
This is a Hong Kong Orchid Tree. R planted it only a year ago, but it’s grown a lot! Amazing and beautiful. I wanted to photograph it against the darkness of the island.
Suki in the lanai. Not sure what captured her attention, but notice her tongue sticking out just a little?
I have a particular fondness for the little lizards that run around. They used to be mostly green, but an invasive brown variety pretty much wiped them out. I miss the green ones; I don’t see them often anymore. This one was hanging on a screen.
The same afternoon I took the photo above, I came home to see a lizard perched on a statue in the neighbor’s yard. She’s one of those people who thinks tacky statues look wonderful. Trust me, it’s not so cool. This might be the best one she has. I love how it looks like the boy is reaching up to touch the lizard. Perfect timing!
Bad news! The dead tree across the canal finally came down after several days of rain. That made me sad, as the birds loved to perch in it. The next morning, I glanced out and saw the anhinga sitting on it. 🙂
Have a terrific weekend!
