Today it rained in Florida. Even at 78 degrees, though, as former Oregonians, we didn't suffer. So we planned indoor activities, visiting the Boca Raton Museum of Art which featured pre-Columbian, African, and contemporary American artists, colorful and abstract.
Allen did approach a museum guard to ask directions to the bathrooms; the museum guard turned out to be a VERY realistic, life-sized sculpture by Duane Hanson. Even after we knew this was a sculpture, we still were fooled.
I wasn't able to use my camera at the museum so I hope you enjoy this picture of a Great Blue Heron taken at the Merritt National Wildlife Refuge. Now, back in our rooms, we're watching primary returns and don't know whether to celebrate or mourn. Beth
