Vinoy Therapy

It was a wonderful mid-winter day in St. Pete.  Late January is really the best time down here.  Cool nights, warm days.  You see more people out and about in winter than in summer.  The heat sometimes keeps people inside.  What better place to go to than my favorite, The Vinoy.

This is another one of those times I'm keeping my mouth shut.  The pictures do all the talking for me.

These are wild parrots that have made their homes in Florida.  Speculation is that a bunch of parrots were accidentally released at Kennedy Airport in new York in 1967.  being the smart birds they are they travelled south to Florida.  Now they are all over the place, much liek the pythons.  They are screechy little bastards and have elaborate huge nests in areas like transformers and electrical stations.  

Class Pictures??

Relaxing and lounging are the order of business today it seems.

14 acres of jogging, walking, picnicing, volleyballing, strolling. 

Florida squirrels don't have to dig through crusty dirt down here to hide their nuts.

This fisherman caught one and then let it go.  It looks like a nice size, bet he was sorry to let it go.

Wonder what that stuff is on his beak?  Just debris from rooting around?

Here's a closer look.

I love the precision flying of the pelicans.  

I don't have a clue as to what this is, and I'm not sure I want to know.

I love the Vinoy.  So much to see.  Always.

I resolve to be a better citizen.  Democracy needs participation, and I have been half-assed if assed at all.  Good citizens need to work at it, to study and to be engaged.  They need to ferret out the facts and be blind to base personal assumptions or ignorance.

I resolve to stop the cycle of watching the news, becoming pissed and then endless viewing to see what happens next.  There are other things to do much more rewarding than being on the frontlines of the Second American Civil War.  

Combining the first two I resolve to resist stupidity or lies in politics or politicians.  Resist being fed lies.  I further resolve to resist blogging political crap.  The U.S. will right itself, or it won't.  The country will embrace Trumpism or it won't.  The people will confirm their values or they'll for…
