I started my day at 8:30 AM at the Viera Wetlands waiting for a forum member visiting here from Canada.. WOW---Believe me this was a great pleasure for me. Well we kinda got mixed up a bit on time and exact place. However the folks at the wetlands did a great job of taking care of him and found me so I could meet up with him :>))) Thank goodness for that. Dao is now an official member of the Mayer of Viera GBH Club :>)) He showed off well for him. As did our resident GWE. Saw an Eagle. To bad he came and left and was to far away. We both enjoyed the Beautiful water lilies for quite a bit of time. Dao really liked the layout of the land and the nice wide open area. Peaceful. We enjoyed the company of the manager of the wetlands and also found out all of us that have shot wildlife there are welcome to submit images for an upcomomg calender contest for the coming year. More to follow on that. Well it got pretty hot and humid so around 2 PM we had a wonderful lunch at TGIF Fridays and headed to the Brevard Zoo. Thought he would really love the butterfly exiibit. Come to find out it ended July 4th. We did have many other great photo ops though. I would say it was rather HOT and HUMID...Soooooo This explains that. I don't have time or energy to post any more pics this evening.. However i would like Dao to post his great impressions. Dao is a wonderful photographer as you all know ,and I now know also a wonderful person. We may meet again to go to viera. We were out until about 6 PM when a horiffic Florida T-storm approached and had to depart. Wish you could all have been with us.
