The Florida State Park Plein Air Painting Tour – Painting each of Florida's State Parks on location
Just spent the past weekend down on Sanibel Island – who needs theme parks!
No man-made water parks for me. Florida has plenty of natural spaces to explore.
Sanibel Island is just west of Ft. Myers, but yet worlds away. There are no strip malls, no traffic lights, no high-rise hotels littering the landscape. So we strapped our trusty “big yellow banana” canoe to the top of the jeep & drove on down.
On the drive back home, we were shocked to see this little kitten on the side of the road in Ft. Myers. Right along a 6 lane highway and a swamp! I think she was most likely a feral kitten, when she saw me she ran and hid under a cypress stump. I had to wade ankle-deep in swampy muddy muck to pry her out. She was wild for about a minute or two, but calmed right down. Then I had to keep her on my lap for the four-hour drive home! Once home we fed & washed her & took her to the vet the next morning. She is about 4-5 weeks old, has a few parasite problems from being in the wild, but is on her way to being a normal healthy kitten. She has lost all the wildness and is now a sweet little lap kitty. (I think four hours on my lap did it!)
