The hidden place in the back yard that we call the Nature Preserve. It’s like a hollowed-out cave underneath the tree branches.
It became especially important two years ago when it was hard to go places because of covid.
Sometimes on the weekends, it’s fun to come out here in the middle of the night and have a cocktail.

Trying some peach tonight. Pinnacle used to have a key lime flavor that we liked, but we can’t find it anymore.

The cool shade of the tree canopy in the Nature Preserve. Also, last night’s moon shining through the trees. 🌛🌳
There is a dose of Internet enhancement that we throw into all of this. Who doesn’t? 😁

Rare daytime pics from the Nature Preserve. Usually we prefer to be out here between 1:00 and 4:00 a.m.
Included is a pic of a pile of sticks that we call the “snake pit.”
Wi-Fi is weak out here. I thought about boosting it in this direction but decided not to. It’s not because the property is large, it’s not. It’s because the house is wrapped in aluminum and there’s heavy vegetation in between.
