There is an island in Florida which is unknown to many including Floridians. A nephew of ours (by marriage) has invited our family to join his in a vacation last April. He confided that he is a fifth generation member of a family who had lived in an island nearby. San Pedro can only be accessed by a boat. It boasts of being only one of a few islands in Florida which is “real Florida.” It is here where one can have a glimpse of Florida as it used to be, i.e., thousands and thousands of years ago.
One of a few places in Florida where one can find the most number of species of birds is in the Apopka Wildlife Refuge. I have visited the place twice and on both occasions have been awed by the beauty of the place and the birds. Below is one of the many photos I took of the beautiful birds in the area.
