Nothing beats some time on the water! Fishing weather looks decent Thursday and pretty good Friday & Saturday. My guess is that the BEST day is Friday for fishing!
I just wanted to take a second to thank all of you who have liked a photo, left a comment, or shared my work with a friend. I’m very grateful I can share the magic of the ocean with you all. And all of you who support it are the real winners.
It has been in my heart for a while to grow Salt Spell bigger. I’m not quite exactly sure what that means. Maybe a print shop, maybe some merchandise, maybe some craft shows. So I am here to ask all of YOU what you think you’d like to see. Is it a ocean or sky calendar? Is it large blown up prints to decorate your home? Is it a perfectly pink cloud pin to adore your favorite denim jacket? Orrrr are you ever going to get sick of just ocean and sky shots ( cause I sure as hell won’t 😏)? Leave a comment and let me know what you think! Cause like I said all my supporters are what makes this most special to me. 🖤🌊🖤
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ " We reserved the 3 hr reservation to Crab Island for my family! It was reasonable and it was the best experience. We enjoyed it very much and the kids said they wanted to come back again! There are snacks on the boat that you can buy and there are also vendors on Crab Island. Definitely will be using SunVenture Cruises on our next trip to Florida!" - TripAdvisor Review 🦀
This beautiful lady was resting and drying off under the pier. They are such graceful birds. But, perhaps my favorite thing about anhingas is that their call sounds to me like someone laughing at their own thoughts. .
I have noticed in the past few months that the anhingas have self-segregated along gender lines on the trail near the lake. The females are hanging out in one area, and the males in another. I began to wonder if this is typical of anhingas, or even of other bird species. Upon researching, I discovered that there is quite a bit of scientific research into self-segregation along gender lines in the animal kingdom. Some potential reasons for this separation proffered are: size differences, hunting technique, socialization, and differences in diet. .
This got me thinking about one of the gender differences I have found when attempting to identify birds. Most of the pictures on bird identification sites are of male birds. In some species, I have found only one image of a female/immature male, yet multiple images of the males, usually in breeding plumage. As I was researching the gender segregation, I came across an article (Davis, 2019) that examined the disparity of representation of birds in museum and research collections across gender lines, with only 25% of bird specimens being female birds. Wow! I guess it’s good to be a lady when researchers are out collecting specimens!! .
Have you noticed gender segregation in the birds around you? .

Be an opportunity maximizer 💪🏽
Here’s how it happened:
We dropped off our friend at the Tampa airport at 10am and thought we’d just check out the city for a while...
🔸“...lol... or Disney World is just an hour away”
🔹“WHAT?!? I’VE NEVER BEEN!”
🔸“...ummm are we going to Disney World today?”
🔹“WE’RE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD TODAY!”
I had 0 plans on doing something so ✨MAGICAL✨ yesterday. But when you are given an incredible opportunity, you MAXIMIZE that opportunity. One of my most helpful mottos in life and in business is: “how can I maximize this opportunity to get the biggest ROI of my time and money”.
That train of thought has led me to some of my biggest successes in business and happiest moments in life. (Swipe to the end to see how Disney maximizes their branding down to the tiniest detail).
How do you create The Happiest Place On Earth every where YOU go?
Today, two bills (SB 1098 by Senator Cruz and SB 1112 by Senator Taddeo) which place a fee on water withdrawn for the production of bottled water will be up for consideration in the Florida Senate.
These bills, the first water use fee bills to be considered in the Florida Legislature in two decades, are an important step towards reducing groundwater withdrawals, increasing funding for springs restoration, and placing the responsibility for restoring our waters on those that profit from their use. (via FSC)
So, HOW will these bills help? First, SB1098 will charge five cents per gallon if the bottling entity withdraws more than 55mil per year, meaning overdrawing will come with a pricetag. Monies rasied in this way will be used for protection and restoration in the district water was drawn from. Second, SB1112 places a 12.5 cent per gallon tax on water withdrawn from private wells for bottled water production. Proceeds from this tax will be used for connecting septic tanks to sewer systems (which is another huge issue facing our state).
Our springs face threats on multiple fronts, and there's no easy fix. The 2020 Legislative Session began on the 14th and will run for 60 consecutive days, during which time the @floridaspringscouncil will be working hard to make sure our support for legislation to protect the springs is heard. Of course, there will also be things we can do to amplify that message! Please follow @floridaspringscouncil and see the link in bio to stay up to date with the FSC's action alerts. We'll be covering them here as well, so keep following along!
