Welcome to Florida

Palm © 2008 Bo Mackison

While I’ve been posting snowy photos the last week, I’ve been traveling in Florida, and then on the Carnival Glory cruise ship to Belize, Mexico and the Bahamas. Fun, though sad to say (for me) the weather in the Caribbean was reminiscent of a November in Wisconsin.

So here is my first taste of Florida when the temperatures were still in the 80s and the sun was shining.

Blackpoint Wildlife Drive near Cape Canaveral. Palm trees are a big treat for me, but these will be old hat to anyone who sees these lovely trees year round.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. Such a stunning photo! How wonderful to visit all these wonderful places!

  2. I’ve seen lots of palm trees, but being a midwest gal, they always blow me away. Everyone has such personality!


  3. I’d like to be sitting under one of those palm trees right now. Lovely. 🙂

  4. Nice photo! The trees have an appeal to me: we had some in our yard in Arizona. I couldn’t live without mountains again though.

  5. yes it was you!

    I saw your post highlighted on the wordpress.com page.

    those goofy-ass trees always make me grin.

  6. Lucky you – enjoy your trip!!
