Birds eye view as we approach landing in Florida

I will normally book a window seat and do prefer them to isle seats . . .  the views at take off and landing in different destinations never cease to amaze me. Florida was quite something to see as we landed on Continental Airlines from Houston.  As of last year (2008) Florida was ranked the fourth most populated state in all of the United States: located in Southeastern United States, the State of Florida also known as the Sunshine State boarders the states of Alabama, Georgia, the Gulf of Mexico tot he west and the Atlantic Ocean to the East, this means lots of water and green. It has a more tropical climate (well sub-tropical) because of the warm nature of it's climate year round. As we flew in from Houston, I could not hide my shock at how green and blue everything looked from a bird's eye view. We flew over the everglades from where the fauna changed in shades of green, yellow and blue creating the most amazing views . . . the everglades are a rare beauty of nature. It is certainly a great place to seek quite soul searching place in nature if one is looking. I do not believe I heard of the everglades until today when the French Floridian seating next to me pointed out that they were called "Everglades" 'A swamp you mean?' I asked, 'yes he said with a smile on his face'. But the everglades are not just a swamp, they are natures few unknown natural heritages (I think they should be included among the UNESCO world heritage sites if not already on there).
