Florida Everglades

Hi!

For those of you that follow me on Facebook, or just know me in real life (not social media, lol) you know that my BF and I started taking Sundays for ourselves–away from the computer, and hopefully tromping around somewhere on the beach or on kayaks at the inlet, or on a mini road trip. Florida from Key West up the coast to Pensacola can take 9 hours. We have a loooong, skinny state. Fun thing is, you can cross it in under three. Yep, coast to coast, across alligator alley, Ft. Lauderdale to Naples.

Not only do I write on average six books a year but we also have an author’s services business–which we have narrowed down to the things that work for us. We both edit and Christopher offers one-on-one book coaching in addition to marketing and running all of our websites and newsletters etc. Working for yourself requires a lot of elbow grease and the pay-off is not the same as a nine to five job where you get a dependable check–in order to avoid burn-out, we grabbed Sundays for us. The injection of energy and balance has been incredible and I highly recommend it. You don’t have to spend a lot of money-we love Groupon! And most of the parks are free, or just a few bucks.

We went to the Florida Everglades National Park, which cost 25.00 to get in but the ticket was good for a week. Believe it or not, folks actually camp there 🙂  I have never seen a panther in the wild and the mosquito can be as large as the pelicans. https://www.nps.gov/ever/index.htm

These three images are all from the same day, and the same park. The first is a bald cypress grove, I think there is a turtle in the second one, and this last image is Flamingo–the park had a small marina at the very tip of the park closest to the Gulf. This place actually had a bald eagle in a nest. Sorry I didn’t get a picture of that!

I was born in Seattle and raised in Spokane where my mom still is–she tells me about shoveling snow, and I don’t miss it. I will take warm sun and sand any day!

My #BytheSea series is a contemporary romance with 14 stories so far (more to come this year!) that take place in Lauderdale by the Sea and I make sure to add in scenes that hopefully bring my love for the coast alive. www.tracihall.com

Have a wonderful day,

  1. Would love to come visit Florida. You folks have hurricanes, but get warned about that. As you know, all we have in Washington state are earthquakes and volcanoes. No warnings. And the mosquitoes in Alaska are supposed to be bigger, but they sprayed our cities while I lived there, so kept them livable. (The muskeg is perfect mosquito breeding grounds, a northern variation of your swamps.)
