Hillsborough River State Park, near Tampa Florida, A Hike with Friends: Rolling, Rolling, Keep Them Wheels a Rolling - Winter 2015-2016

Recently we spent a day with RVing friends, Ron & Terrie.  They are in the area to marry off a son, after that little important chore was over we spent the day together.  The day included eating, visiting, laughing, more eating, and a bit of a nice walk at the Hillsborough River State Park.  We were so busy visiting (mmm, talking), that I did not take a lot of photos.  But, I did spy this air plant growing in the nitch of a tree, the pink at the bottom will be a bloom.

Man and I have visited this park several times, and never saw fish in the river.  The light must have been wrong. Not this day.  OK, you fish people - - catfish??

Ron wanted to see a "gator" in the wild.  Your wish has been granted, Ron.

Taking Sony III zoom to the max.  

The supervisor.  No, he was not hiding from the gator, he was just taking a short break.  He walked the entire distance.  His buddy Sirius was with us.  Sir Winston sure thought it was fun having a "hiking" partner.

The weather was "coolish" for Florida, brisk, sunny and marvelous.  A great day spent with RVing friends.
