Back from Spring!
Cassius in the light
All vacations start in airports. As I leave the studio I see my friends (Bower) on the covers of magazines. Nice.
Cassius again glowing in the light on the river.
We won the river race
The Ichetucknee River is covered with cypress knees and stumps. Very cool.
In Cedar Key, out in the Gulf of Mexico. Beer tastes GREAT here.
On the way to Cedar Key, this is the place to get boiled peanuts.
Cedar Key's Honeymoon Shack
And from my sketchbook...the same
A house in Cedar Key...
On the way out of Cedar Key
Will's home in Gainesville.
The front gate to the prairie
A view from his house. Breathtaking.
I caught an ugly but welcome fish. I actually fished for about 40 minutes and as I turned to my sister-in-law to tell her I was packing it in, the fish jumped at my lure. We laughed hard.
Walking back across the prairie. The grass is soft on your arms.
Will demonstrating the way a prairie chair works.
I did a drawing of the view and a live oak branch. In this world, everything is backlit! Paradise!
The drawing on a wood panel
I had some real moonshine. This is good stuff.
At Sonny's BBQ, Elizabeth, Nell and Will
Finally, a curious sighting in spring; Cute Donkeys! Donkey #1
And the third. Does this mean we take back the White House? I hope so.
Cassius fed a very stinky giraffe. Did you know they stink?
...but Cassius fell in love with a lizard.
