It's Mango Time!!!
If you're a south Floridian, you can just feel it in the air! That build-up, that anticipation - as if waiting for a big party - it's that good! Yes, it's that time of year. It's Mango Time!!!! (doing a little dance)
And that means Mango smoothies
And homemade Mango ice cream
Even Mango margaritas!
Unfortunately, we don't have a mango tree in our yard. But the neighbors do! And I've got my eye on it....oh, don't worry, I'm not going to do a midnight raid.
But I will ask them if they'll trade mangos for some of my fresh made basil pesto!
And if not, no worries...it just gives me a great excuse to head on over to Pine Island where mangos are usually plentiful. And to see all the other sights on this pretty island, like their palm tree farms as shown above.
The incredibly gorgeous blue water and blue skies. Love the blues!
There's always fantastic bird watching and photography opportunities!
Look how picturesque this osprey nest is. They chose such a charming site, I had to take a pic.
The happy couple. (Although it kind of looks like she's giving him an earful! haha)
And a bonus to going to Pine Island is I get to pass through Matlacha, which is an old fishing village filled with artist shops and great little seafood places on the water. Can't wait!
