    This was the oddest thing to see. I wasn't prepared to take photos so by the time I got everything out I had to photograph from the rear. We were coming back from downtown and entered the river portion from the lake area where you usually see some birds. I noticed all the birds were standing as if they were in a military formation.

    On both sides of the river the birds were standing at attention, all facing the water, and all equal distance apart. I expected to see some sort of salute. All I can think of is that there must have been a high ranking bird on board our boat.

    Most of the time I feel like pictures do not do this resort justice. I have to say though, several on this thread come very, very close! I wish I could pay one of you to follow my family around on our trip and take pictures for me. When I win the lotto, be expecting a phone call PizzaMan, or Kc Mike, Or Andre, or many of the others contributing to my POR photo addiction. Meanwhile, I am just going to keep forcing my husband to look at this thread with me everyday. He doesn't get excited about our trips until about 3 days before. Then the night before we leave he doesn't sleep at all and aks me a million questions. He is so funny, but I digress. Thank you all for these wonderful pictures. I never get tired of looking at them.

    Many thanks to PizzaMan and Andre for all of these beautiful pics! We are leaving soon for our first stay at POR and I'm beside myself excited! I even put one of these pics as my lock screen pic on my phone so I could look at it multiple times a day! (Pretty bad huh?)

    My DH is usually like another lady's on here. Doesn't get excited until right before we leave. This year however he has actually shown more interest! I've still planned everything but he's at least shown a little more enthusiasm!

    That one is the quiet pool between Oak Manor (which can be seen in the background) and Parterre Place. Here's another view of it, looking the other way toward Parterre:

    I'm really sad that we're going to miss this resort this time around. We thought we had extra friends of my children coming with us so my wife had a friend who got us a steal of a deal at Bonnet Creek. These pics are killing me.
