Southern Exposure

February 2015

One rapidly learns, living in Pittsburgh, that it is valuable to flee the ice, snow, and grey around February. This year we went on a nature adventure in Southwest Flordia.

I build real fossil sifters and we did indeed find a ton of cool shells and shark's teeth!

The kids at a really cool nature park -- we saw animals, went to a shell museum, and did old fashioned mining for gems

A kayak adventure ... looking for manatees!

Here we are gliding along ... we saw about a dozen manatees (no pictures though ... they were too quick!)

On the last night, we went together to an art studio and painted as a family
