After 3 days of rain the sun finally comes out. It is amazing how powerful and healing the sunshine can be. You just feel so much better on a sunny day. I moved south from Ohio where we were used to gray overcast days on end with no sunshine. Many times when we have those gray types of days in Florida it makes me feel nostalgic for home. I guess it is true you don't know what you are missing until you are looking for it. I feel lost without the sunshine, am so grateful when Florida weather returns to normal and I can bask in the sunshine. This photo of water droplets on a leaf was taken at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida. It gives me a feeling of being refreshed, revitalized and having new beginnings, like the dew on the grass of a new day, the possibilities are endless.

If you have seen the Kangaroo exhibit at Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay, Florida you need to make an effort to get over there. They are adorable, allow you to pet and feed them and truly a wonder to watch. The exhibit is called WalkAboutWay and don't avoid thinking you have to pay to enter. I asked if we could enter because at the front they sell food to feed the Kangaroos. Thought this was the only way to gain admittance. Happily I was told I didn't have to purchase food and we had a great time petting and photographing these amazing animals.

This is the new roller coaster at Kennywood Park in PA. Long line but kids said it was worth the wait. I don't ride roller coasters, never acquired the passion or nerve for this type of ride.
