Nothing Gold Can Stay
April 27, 2014
Janet and I drove in to the Little Manatee River State Park February 2. I say “drove in” because it’s inland from the places we usually visit. It’s also somewhat north. The foliage and feel of the place are just enough different from those at our regular haunts that we feel definitely “away,” even though this park is barely an hour from Sarasota. A stretch of the trail goes through blankets and blankets of various kinds of ferns, most of them green. But I could make a better photograph out of this one, senescing into golds and oranges.
