Well, the cooler weather has come, at least, for a few days, and we took advantage of it to have a family hike in Gothe State Park.
First, we went down the Big Cypress Trail, and saw a huge cypress tree, approximately 970 years old.

|Mr. Energy with his airplane...|
|The queen and her humble carrier.|
|Oh, here he comes again!|
|Mama and Daddy...|
"Wow, that's a huge tree!"
|(The pictures don't show its size.)|
|"Why am I down here?"|
|"I'm not so sure about this idea..."|
|"If I smile, will you pick me up again?"|
|"Yay! It worked! Bo rescued me!"|
|Here comes William too!|
Okay, the big tree was amazing. Now off to climb around the interesting part of Gothe- the old sinkholes!
|This is the warm-up hill.|
|Now to go down the 30' hill...|
Mama and Daddy stayed on the trail.
|But Mama still found some rocks to jump off!|
|LilyAnn at the base of a "huge cliff".|
|And, in Florida, it's hard to get away from the swamps...|
|"Uh oh, it's a long way down..."|
|"I don't think I want to let go!"|
Rescued by Daddy; all is well!
What a great way to spend a Friday afternoon- enjoying God's beautiful creation!
"The works of the Lord are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein."
