left my camera at the workshop place

But armed with my trusty iPhone (which miraculously had not vaporized by the end of the day) I took some lovely location shots in downtown Orlando after dinner tonight. You want photos? These are not what I had planned, but ok.

Hot hot hot and just as humid, although I understand from Marty that it's just as bad in NJ.  Maybe.

Gee, Orlando is a real place - not just Disney World (which , in any case, is not even in Orlando or even in the same county as Orlando.  Here's what I saw as we walked around the lake in a beautiful little park downtown.

nice texture on some sort of palm

white swans
more texture
is this not gorgeous?
I'll post some class pictures tomorrow (if I can remember to bring my camera home with me).  With what's left of the evening I will read a little more of the Kate Atkinson book that had me laughing out loud on the flight down.  Do you know how people look at you when you are giggling to yourself in an airplane?  It is called Human Croquet and was published in 1997 - well before Behind the Scenes at the Museum and other recent books. I have read them all. they've all made me giggle. Isn't that nice?

Rayna,you're reminding me of the weather I remember from living on the West coast in Florida... 95 degrees, 98% humidity and not a breeze to be found.
The palm tree has compound eyes!
Enjoy and your iPhone has a great camera!

Funny how his palm tree observes me.

I believe the "palm" is a split leaf philodendron. I have one in my back yard and I love to take photos of the trunk texture. The sheaths that cover the new leaves are great for basketmakers.
These are just like the little indoor philodendrons that you keep in a pot. But outside in humid warm weather - they thrive and become small trees. Mine survived the winter snow we had this year.
