Astral Nomads II - Gone Ethereal

Been a while since we've posted. We decided to take another adventure, this time sans van. The last winter in New Jersey was too much to bear so we moved to Florida. Orlando to be specific. To be honest, a move of that magnitude was pretty damn stressful. But, we're essentially settled in, living in downtown Orlando. Good things: my commute is a five minute walk, the weather is so consistent that the forecast is superfluous, and you never get sick of seeing an ibis. 

Before we left New Jersey, I kept calling this adventure Astral Nomads II, No Van Required. Astral Wendy calls it Ethereal Nomads. You decide.

They call Orlando 'The City Beautiful'. Hard to disagree. Here's the 
Lake Eola fountain at night. It's about a three block walk. This
shot is from our bedroom window.

The drive down was challenging for Otis but he's finally
able to get into the total rabbit relax zone. When the back legs
go out like this, it's a sign that he's completely at peace.

We're living high-rise, 19th floor. 
Hello Mondrian!

Orlando is urban but mellow. 

The is our building, The Solaire at the Plaza.

Great shot but not Orlando. This is up in Longwood, where
Astral Wendy has family. Not too far from us.

The Sunshine State? The weather changes fast.

Some Astral Wendy Nature shots at Lake Eola:

On the 4th of July, they had some killer fireworks
over Lake Eola. We watched from our bedroom window.

Yes Virginia, there is a super moon in Florida.

This is the view from our bedroom.

This was during World Cup fever.

Rainbows always follow the nomads.
