Islamorada Journal 2012...20 JAN

We regret to report the death today of our dear Aunt Ruth. She was born in 1910 in Winterport, ME and has been the doyenne of our family for many years.

That's right, she was 101 years old.

We last saw Ruth on December 31st; she was still bright and chipper...never lost a beat on the mental side.

Our best wishes go to Bob, Bob, Brian, and Ted and families.

May the Lord bless you and keep you; May the Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace, this day and always.

This little cuda has been hanging out in the boat basin hoping for some five-or-ten-year-old boy or girl to dangle toes in the water.

Note that he appears to have been injured on his back just behind the gills. Probably some larger fish took a whack at him.

Dunno what kind of plant this is ["don't know much about botany...."] [That's a link to the Sam Cooke song, Wonderful World.]

Deb got this shot of a great blue heron in full flight.

And dunno what kind of flower this is...but the thing's almost a foot across.

Egrets just love the limelight.
