This first picture is taken on the banks of the Kissimmee River in Ft. Bassinger, Okeechobee County, Florida.
This is my Papa Carl. He isn't my father, but as close to any father a person could have. He is one of the strongest, caring, and loving men I have had the pleasure of knowing in my life. He will always hold a special place in my heart. Love ya Pappa!
This is one of our Great Wild Oaks we have down here in the deeper parts of Florida. I love the way the Spanish Moss hangs from the trees.
This is a Cabbage Palm tree. It is used in our area to make Swamp Cabbage Stew. Some people call it the Heart of the Palm, because the heart of the tree is what is eaten. If you ever get the chance to taste some home cooked Swamp Cabbage take it, you will be surprised by what you find.
Will that is it for now. Hope you enjoyed some pics of the Wilds of Florida.
