November in the Panhandle

One the things that is that you can count on in November is bears. They come around because of the acorns that are prevalent in the fall. The sow  in the photo above has two cubs and has been hanging around for a couple of weeks. Her cubs were frolicking across the street last week.

They are very entertaining to watch and aren't a problem unless they get into you garbage are destroy your bird feeder.

Our weather is great this time of the year and so is the fishing! Trout and reds are fattening up on the shrimp migrating to the gulf.

I took an interesting picture (to me anyway) the other day.

Nothing exceptional you say...just a handsome young man man holding a nice red, until you look at the reflection in his sun glasses.

You can see what Mike is seeing, while I'm taking his picture.

While I was out on the dock, my neighbor came out to net some mullet for supper. The evening sun added a nice cast of color.

 Then there's Jessie. He lives in the creek that borders our property. He certainly enjoys the sunny afternoons after our chilly fall nights.

I'm very fortunate to live in such a rich, natural environment, and for all of you that we don't have a change of season............We do!!!!!!!!!!
