Biking in Florida last week

It was a short trip to Florida last week. But enjoyed some sunshine, warm weather and friends. In this photo, Realtor Ed Sherman and I enjoyed biking at Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge. Saw a "bunch" of wildlife, got some exercise and enjoyed the day. Photo by Arnette Sherman, also a realtor, who rode with us.

FYI - LWNWR as we call it, is a few miles west of Daytona Beach and is just one of the 25 biking trail locations in our Central Florida biking book. It is a wildlife refuge with 450 acres of managed ponds for migratory birds and other wildlife. It's well worth your time to go there and hike, bike and enjoy it and its wildlife. For more info on other fun locations in CFL go to:

Birding in Florida

Mark your calendars for Sundays in January and February. I have agreed to conduct my usual birding tours at Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge from 3-5 pm every Sunday in January and February. The tours are free and open to the public. They are designed to introduce you to the wildlife, the West Volusia Audubon Society and the Friends of Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge. We cover about 1.5 miles of dikes at a leisurely pace. We view wildlife through a 60 power spotting scope. Please come and join us at least one Sunday.
