Fall is in the air

Today I worked on the road-visiting clients, I drove over 300 miles between Miami to West Palm Beach; by the end of the day I was exhausted. The thought of going biking was not very appealing.

The weather was so nice that I couldn’t resist a long bike ride; it truly felt like fall. The temperature was in the low seventies with a nice breeze blowing from the Everglades.

There is nothing like an intense exercise outside in pleasant weather, it takes away all the stresses of the day.

Ibises or as they are known around here “Florida pigeons”

This lonely Great Egret was looking for diner.

Another spectacular Florida sunset.

Today was the official start of the dry season, according to an article in the local newspaper. Scientists predict a particularly dry season this year, I hope the plentiful rainy season will get us through the winter. The year around water restrictions are in effect.

Glad to see the cooler temps are reaching all the way to Miami. It really is the best time of the year.

It sound like our days were exactly alike. I said I was going bike riding in this beautiful weather, but by the time I fought traffic to get home that thought was long gone.

Wow, these are really spectacular photos! Love the birds, of course, and that sunset is simply stunning! Looks like you have a beautiful place to get your exercise!

So good that you took the bike ride, despite being tired from a long day. I often get too lazy to work out but after I do, I always feel invigorated. It's much more pleasant to be outdoors with weather just a bit cooler, I'm sure! Your photos are gorgeous...especially that sunset!

It's hard to stay inside on days like today.

I've been through a fairly dry summer, so I feel your pain. I've had to water 13 days in a row and am waiting for rain. We do get rain all winter, so that's a plus.
Sorry to here about water restrictions. I've had to do that 2 times before and it is no fun.
