Earlier this month I was lucky enough to visit my sister, who recently moved to Gainesville, FL. I didn’t have much to do while she was working, so I spent one afternoon in the Florida Museum of Natural History (conveniently located on the UF campus) visiting their Butterfly Rainforest. It was a beautiful greenhouse filled with over 60 species of butterflies, plants and small birds. I spent well over an hour in there admiring everything and taking hundreds of pictures. Here a few of my favorites:
Giant elephant ears.
We also visited St. Augustine, the oldest city in the United States. We spent most of the day on the beach; Rachael hooped and I tried to tan (but ended up with a pretty significant sunburn).
Then we visited a lighthouse and ate delicious shrimp tacos.
The Attendant’s Quarters
I’d say it was a successful trip!
Thanks for reading!
