 On Friday, our first day of "retirement", we visited the Black Creek property, and the boat ramp at the "Outpost", a nearby watering hole and biker-bar, with our friends John & LeAnn Elliott, visiting all the way from Apple Valley, California.   (If you're wondering where John is in this photo, he's behind me on dry land, where LeAnn & Robert can't feed him to the alligators and water moccasins which we told him were waiting for him in Black Creek.)

 Yesterday we drove to Apalachicola, Florida, a sweet little town in "OldClick here for an enlargement Florida", which sits very picturesquely along the mouth of the Apalachee River .  LeAnn & Jeanie took a walk through the neighborhoods, full of quaint southern homes with wrap-around porches complete with rocking chairs and porch swings, and beautiful old trees.  I think this is a particularly handsome old cedar.  We also stopped for coffee and hand-made chocolates at a local shop.
