Headed to Fort Lauderdale this past weekend, but our pilot had to take us on a more "scenic route" to skirt some severe thunderstorms in the area. So I'm guessing these are the Keys down below? :-)
Still ran into some rough turbulence upon approach, though.

Colonial Williamsburg is now in the process of relocating its windmill. I'm super excited! It's current location is a little bit off the beaten path, hence the decision to relocate. But the new site (below) is right along a path that I walk almost every day. It'll be fun to watch it when it's finally operational again.

Got my hands on an iPhone 13 recently and took these photographs. The first two were shot in Colonial Williamsburg. For those interested in such things, I've also included the camera settings.

"The park is where English colonists first landed in 1607. Native American canoes, Colonial settlers, 20th-century schooners and modern cargo ships have navigated the park's waterways. Its cypress swamps were a source of fresh water for merchant mariners, pirates and military ships during the War of 1812. Legend has it that Blackbeard hid in the Narrows area of the park, and interior waterways were used by Union and Confederate patrols during the Civil War. Built in part by an all African-American Civilian Conservation Corps in 1933-1940, the park is a National Natural Landmark and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places." -- Department of Conservation and Recreation
