Canadian Goose with mind of its own!

This post is for my friend, the East Gwillimbury Camera Girl, who blogs in East Gwillimbury, Canada, which is in Ontario, near Toronto, an area that has suffered through a long, cold winter.

I met this Canadian goose on the golf course Sunday morning. She was quite friendly and allowed me to get close enough to take her picture. I asked her why she had not flown back to Ontario (that's where she said she was from) and she gave me a baffled look as if to say, "What are you, stupid?", and then replied in her honking goose voice: "Are you crazy? It's still freezing up there! I'll go back just as soon as it gets as warm as it does right here in Stone Creek, Ocala, Florida." Then she put her beak in the air and waddled over to the little lake on the other side of the fairway to join a few other Canadian geese who have been warming their fuzzy little butts here in Florida over the winter.

The 16th hole - Stone Creek Golf Course

This par 5 has a plethora of sandy wastes to terrify the golfer!

Dave & Jerry

Dave and Jerry are brothers.  One of them lives in Ocala, the other in Orlando (100 miles southeast of Ocala).  They get together frequently to play golf and they love the Stone Creek Golf Course.  Here they are waiting for the players in front of them to clear the green.
