Valentine’s Day Wild Card — 2.14.11

I'm still trying to switch gears after a week in Gator country, in and around the University of Florida, at Gainesville. Ran into rain 3 of the 6 days in north-central Florida. But sunshine greeted the trip to St. Augustine and the Atlantic Coast. So it was all good.

No real gators either, although I saw a sign near the Florida campus warning spectators not to feed them or to get within 20 feet of them. Nice vacay. But it was nice to get back to the pines, lakes, and foothills of North Idaho. And, of course, Huckleberries Central. Now, for your Wild Card ...
