The girls and I didn’t want to stay inside yesterday. It was such a beautiful day, perfect for enjoying some sunshine and nature. We have many beautiful and interesting nature preserves here in the area and I like to explore them. My friend had posted pictures of this one the day before and I couldn’t wait to go. We put on our walking shoes, I grabbed my camera and off we went to the Wakodahatchee Wetlands. It was amazing to see so many different birds nesting in the trees or wading in the water and hiding behind the tall grasses. We couldn’t believe the size of the ginormous gator that was sunning himself on one of the little islands, or as seen here, the baby Raccoons playing in the trees. They were so much fun to watch, clinging to the branches and tumbling down. (I will post more pictures for upcoming Project 365 dates.)
To learn more about the wetlands, click here! It’s really very interesting. The name Wakodahatchee is a Seminole Indian word that means “created water”.
I hope, everyone has a wonderful week. If you are off today, like I am. Enjoy the extra day! I’m off to get a few things done.
