I wanted to share a few more pics from the air show we caught; this was a race set up by Geico between their monster racing speed boat and two of their stunt bomber planes:
The race took place right in front of us, a couple hundred feet out in the water, and it was incredible to be that close. We decided to move closer:
Both planes and the boat were moving very fast, so I basically pointed the camera, prayed, and clicked.
This was probably the best shot of the day -- not perfect or centered or anything other than strictly amateur, but it gives you an true idea of how close we were. Also, while I think the announcer called it a tie, I'm pretty sure the boat won. :)

Bald Cypress tree roots grow protrusions above the ground that are commonly called "knees" in the South. These are everywhere the cypress grow in the park, and always look to me like gatherings of little wee folk, waiting for us to leave so they can get on with their party.

We like to walk out on one dock at the park to look for gators, as we've seen them here more than a few times in the past. This visit the gators didn't show, but I did notice a lot of huge spider webs; they were in practically every nook, cranny and corner of the dock.
