None of us would get into that water if our lives depended on it. It's known for alligators and snakes. (There are areas of the river that are great for swimming but not this particular section.) But I did climb off the dock to snag each of us a clam shell. The insides are so pretty -- they're iridescent.
|Clam shells washed ashore.|
|Linda snapped an egret.|
|Lots of water hyacinth.|
|We headed down one of the trails.|
|Info on native trees. In other words, welcome to the swamp.|
|Wonder if anything lives in the base of this tree?|
|Cypress knees. Lots and lots of them.|
|Linda: "Some things never change."|
|Pretty dragon fly.|
Looks suspiciously like hair.

We definitely felt like we had a real 'break' with our adventure. And, yes, to us, this was an adventure.
