Let's Go For a Bike Ride

Would you like to come for a bike ride.  I'm going in search of peacocks!

Where we are vacationing in Florida there is a  neighborhood where many peacocks just wander
about freely. 

There are lots of cute little houses there too.

With white picket fences.

Here is a peacock preening himself.

Some cottages have porches.

This porch is wonderful.

I like this blue one and the yellow shutters are cute.

Here is a male and female.

 I love this little blue cottage with the yellow door hidden behind the foliage.

These folks are definitely into the Christmas spirit.  It looks like they're ready for Christmas!

Here are two more sunning themselves on someone's lawn.

I think this last one was used to posing for photographs, don't you?  He is beautiful!

On the way we pass by this huge contemporary home right on the beach.  I wonder what kind of a person would want to live in a home like this.  I sure wouldn't.  Would you?

  1. Hi Rhondi. Welcome to the Sunshine state! I hope that you are enjoying your visit. The weather has been really fine. Thanks for your little tour. There is such a variety of styles here in Florida and you have captured a taste of it.

    Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

  2. What a nice combination of fancy peacocks and cute little houses!! I loved the little tour Rhondi!! Love the picket fences the most!!

    Happy holidays!! :-)


  3. Rhondi, beautiful peacocks and totally enchanting cottages! Thank you for taking us along on the bike ride. How lucky to be vacationing such a warm and charming spot for the holidays. Enjoy! ~ Sarah

  4. Rhondi, we have peacocks that live just down the lane from us and they are quite noisy in the mornings! Beautiful to look at though! What beautiful little homes you have shown us, how blessed those people are to live there. I am not fond of the last one either. Too impersonal and cold looking for my taste! Looks like you are having a wonderful week so far!

  5. Rhondi, welcome to Florida! It looks like you are having a good week so far. How nice that you were able to visit Fifi. You captured some great photos of the little cottages. Did you miss some snow at your home yesterday? My son had a little.

  6. hi
    Thanks for the visual tour...
    I might not visit Florida personally but thanks for taking me along with your lovely photos..
    It was nice to see our national bird all around too...

  7. Great bike ride. You took some lovely pix. That peacock has his pose down. The charming cottages in their vibrant colors makes me feel warm on this brisk day.

    I could never live in a house that modern, or that large. :-)

  8. I love your sunny and warm and bright pictures. We are sitting here in snow! It is pretty but boy is it cold!

  9. The pictures are so beautiful. I use to love riding a bike, but due to a surgery years ago I cannot ride again.


  10. Rhondi,
    Lovely photos, looks like the weather there is perfect!! Wishing you and yours a joyful Christmas and New Year!! Big Hugs xOxO Nerina

  11. Hi Rhondi, what a treat you have given us! Beautiful peacocks and absolutely lovely cottages! Wishing you a Blessed Christmas and a healthy 2010,

  12. Dear Rhondi, Your photos of the historic village are so charming. I adore the peacocks and their glorious color. The cottages have so much charm.

    We are heading South for Christmas with our children as soon as the snow goes away. Or at least melts.

    May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!

    Love, Jeanne

  13. It all looks wonderful, Rhondi. I'm from south Florida, so it all looks like home to me. And, the peacocks are fabulous.

    Happy Holidays to you and your family.


Thanks so very much for taking the time to leave a comment. I always read every one. I am glad you stopped by for a visit. Hope you'll come again!
