We chased the sunset, discovered uncharted territory, held hands, talked, laughed and saw a bunny. Two of my most favorite things; nature and my husband. This night was good.
I am a sucker for nature; pretty much any kind. Being emerged in the beauty of the outdoors brings me peace and tranquility like nothing else. As I sit there soaking it all in, I lose track of time and all worries of this world. Nature is one of the places that I easily connect with God. I see him everywhere; His majesty and wonder surrounds me. Florida sunsets are simply the best! What a great way to end an awesome weekend.
This place. It seems when we are here, time stands still. I love going out to the Everglades with Steve to watch the sunset. It is in these moments when we can put everything aside just be. We can sit and watch the beauty all around us while we talk about big things, little things, silly things, insignificant things, everything. I love dreaming. I love thinking about what can be. These are some of my most favorite moments.
The government is closed which means that our usual date night spot is still off limits. We decided to take a detour and explore a new spot. Man, did we luck up. We found this really cool old bridge that was closed off and set back a ways from the road. We decided to stop there to hang out for a bit. I can definitely tell that it’s really close to the time change because it is getting dark much, much earlier. We are barely catching a sunset and are barely able to get in many pics before it’s too dark. But, I think we were able to catch a few good ones. Here are the pics of our new date night spot this week.
We traveled to our normal date night hangout only to find that the park was closed. We weren’t even thinking about the government being shut down much less that the shutdown would affect the parks. But, it made total sense. There were no workers to open the park yesterday. Saddened, we drove down the gravel road that ran along the park to look for another spot only to find a cop writing tickets to a group of guys fishing. Obviously, hanging out there just wasn’t happening.
Thanks, Obama! 😉
We decided to just go home and hang out on our patio. We had a blast anyway and got these great pics also.
Thanks, Obama! 😉
