Swamps and Giant Birds

Something to warm up this first day of March! Here's some post-Tampa bear show adventures. Right after the show ended, we headed south to Naples then to Sanibel Island.

is the Florida we wanted to see:

Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Naples, Florida.
The raised boardwalk trail winds through several distinct ancient habitats. A truly magical, majestic place. Not a single bug bite!

This gave me a chuckle. Fortunate I guess, that we did not come across any bear poo.

J. N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, Sanibel, Florida.
We walked the trail day one, then explored further on bikes day two. Costs $1 to enter. Birds galore! Do click this picture to enjoy it large:
Tomorrow I will show you more of "natural" Florida! Sea shells, sand and sunsets... (sigh)

This makes me so homesick--my mom lives next to such a boardwalk, on a west-coast Floridian island not far from Sanibel...I always love these kinds of places!
