|A February visit to a lovely falls...Hooker Falls on the Little River in DuPont Forest, NC.|
|My friend is enjoying the sunshine on this cold day at the foot of the falls.|
|I have seen boats with fishermen in them over on the far side from the "swimming area."|
|The Little River tumbles over lots of falls, and provides many a trout pool, if only I knew how to catch them. I prefer just going to a restaurant and having fresh catch (even if it comes from a farm!)|
In the 1990s, DuPont Forest was sold to the State of North Carolina, and as DuPont has completed cleanup of various areas, those areas have been made open to the public. (Source, Wikipedia)
barrier island off the southwestern coast of Florida in the United States of America. It is situated between Roberts Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. After the probable Amerindian name of Zarazote for the area and the bay, the key was originally named "Sarasota Key" by European cartographers during exploration beginning in 1513. That name can be seen on maps from the early 18th century as well as on all local maps drawn before the name change to "Siesta Key" in the 1920s. (Source: Wikipedia)
My North Carolina friends are vacationing right now on another Key near Sarasota, for a couple of weeks, while I help them by feeding their cats. I hope they are enjoying this snshine!
In case you want to catch something closer to fish or fishing, look over at Sepia Saturday here.
I think my photos are a bit more pleasing than the one in the prompt, but that's just my personal taste.
