This week I found out Florida is NOT kidding around when it comes to lightning. We took these shots from our living room (they were videos and then we pulled the frame). Actually, this first photo looks like a blip on video...but when you go frame by frame, BAM!
And no sooner were we done oohing and ahhing over all the violence outside our window... we heard the emergency broadcast system and this pops up on the television:
I'll tell you what, Florida is never boring!
Turtles Gone Wild
On the wildlife side of things, we came across some baby sea turtles on their way to the ocean....
So of course Florida had to even that beautify, peaceful moment out with a non-stop tortoise UFC fight in my back yard. Shelby has been besieged by other turtles, sometimes two at a time, all looking to wrestle with her. We looked it up and it seems two males will do this, and two females will do this, but since we don't know which Shelby is, we don't know what's going on. I'm starting to think she's a boy. I don't think girls would wrestle THIS much. By now they would have realized they dated the same jerk in high school, had a good laugh and gone to get wine and tapas.
